How did you deduce that?
Indeed, conformational sampling may be an issue, so one should check the
internal geometries of the ligands, preservation of various interactions with
the protein (H-bonding and other characteristic distances and angles, etc).
Revisit your parametrization, if you used some black-box method without
validation and/or refinement, you may just have a junk ligand topology.
