If Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche decides to forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, he’s going to be one of the most sought-after players in this year’s class.

He’s also going to have quite a story to tell at the combine.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Nkemdiche was charged with possession of marijuana after he fell out of a hotel window in Atlanta this weekend.

According to the police report, cops responding to the fact that a very large man, you know, FELL OUT OF A WINDOW found his room “in complete disarray,” along with “seven rolled marijuana cigarettes.”

Regardless where you fall on the whole illegal drug (except for two cities where the NFL does business) issue, there’s also the small fact that an elite draft prospect FELL OUT OF A WINDOW. He apparently went through a double pane of glass and off a ledge outside his window, approximately 15 feet.

He conscious and stable when police and paramedics arrived, and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, but then was released and taken into police custody.

The 6-foot-4, 296-pound defensive tackle apparently got out of his window, over the ledge and onto the ground without any of his associates knowing how it happened, which seems unusual considering his size, the loud noise breaking glass makes and the fact he FELL OUT OF A WINDOW.

“Neither Mr. Nkemdiche nor his associates would provide this information,” the police said.

Oh, there’s more information to be discovered, and you can bet NFL teams can’t wait to find it.
