The NFL has announced that no player has failed a drug test at February’s NFL Combine for the first time in recent history, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Last year’s most notable case was University of Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory’s positive test for marijuana. After testing positive, Gregory fell in the draft order before being selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the second round.

In February, Gregory was suspended four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
