NFL | Michael Sam could go undrafted

Thu, 27 Feb 2014 11:59:16 -0800

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah thinks Missouri DE Michael Sam could go undrafted this year after underwhelming at the NFL Scouting Combine. "The number everybody keeps talking about is the 25 1/2-inch vertical. That is way down there. That is not good for an offensive lineman. That shows you a lack of explosiveness, which is going to scare a lot of people off," Jeremiah said. Sam lacks the size to be an every-down defensive end in any scheme, and he likely figures to be a third-down specialist in passing situations.

NFL | Michael Sam to be situational player

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 08:42:59 -0800

Missouri DE Michael Sam disappointed with a 4.91-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine and a vertical jump of only 25 1/2 inches. He is considered a situational pass rusher at the next level, meaning he'll probably be selected between the fourth and sixth rounds of the draft this year.
