Names of the two draft hopefuls who left urine and feces in hotel room identified

The names of the two players who reportedly trashed an Indianapolis hotel room during February's NFL Combine have been identified as Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison.

This is according to a tweet sent out by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

However, Schefter has since tweeted that NFL sources are convinced Harrison was not responsible for the trashed room.

According to a report published by Yahoo! Sports on Monday, two unknown players left the Crowne Plaza hotel room in terrible condition. The report included details of urine and feces scattered around the corridors of the bathroom, garbage dispersed around the room, and partially eaten food left on the bed and throughout the premises.

NFL Scouting president Jeff Foster offered confirmation shortly thereafter.

"I can confirm that a room was left in an inappropriate condition and we're disappointed by both players who occupied the room," Foster said. "There was no material damage to the room; otherwise we would be pursuing further action and really be trying to get to the bottom of the situation. It's just very disappointing, and the people we feel the worst for are the people at the Crowne Plaza who had to clean it up."

The incident quickly made headlines around the country and has left many to wonder how it will affect the draft stock of the two players involved.

Hopkins was considered a high first-round prospect before the story came out.
