2012 NFL Draft: Dre Kirkpatrick's Charges Could Be Dropped

Alabama defensive back Dre Kirkpatrick was arrested for marijuana possession back in the middle of January, but it looks like those charges could be dropped.

Kirkpatrick was originally arrested for possession of fewer than 20 grams of marijuana on Jan. 16 in Florida. As soon as the news hit, many Jacksonville Jaguars fans seemed to want to immediately write off Kirkpatrick, who's expected to be a potential Top 10 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, as a possibility for the Jaguars. Kirkpatrick looks like an attractive pick for the Jaguars because he seems to be a perfect blend of need at a position and value.

Kirkpatrick declared for the NFL Draft after winning the National Championship with Alabama his junior season. Many felt the arrest was going to hurt his draft stock, but it now looks as if it's just going to be another area NFL teams will need to investigate before pulling the trigger on drafting the talented cornerback.
