The county district attorney's office says that 21-year-old defensive lineman Blain Padget believed he was purchasing hydrocodone from Mouchantaf, but instead, received pills containing carfentanil.

Carfentanil was originally produced as an elephant tranquilizer, and it "is so potent that a lethal dose could be invisible to the human eye," according to "CrimeOnline."

Padget was found dead last March by teammates after he had missed practice.
