NFL Team Official: Michael Sam Is ‘Not A Really Good Athlete’

ST. LOUIS (CBS St. Louis) — It could be a very long weekend for Michael Sam.
The openly gay football player from the University of Missouri is hoping an NFL team takes a chance and makes history by drafting him, but some experts believe he might end up being an undrafted free agent.
Scouts told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that they don’t see Sam’s game transitioning to the NFL.
“Most of his production was hustle stuff,” an NFC personnel official told the Journal Sentinel. “There’s production, but he’s short, he’s not a really good athlete and he doesn’t play good against the run.”
He continued: “He’s kind of a one-task pass rusher. Just run up the field. And they swallow him up and kind of push him around.”
One NFC personnel director stated that Sam doesn’t have a position in the league.
“He’s not a linebacker, and he’s really not a defensive end,” the personnel director told the Journal Sentinel. “I’d certainly take him to camp. You’ve got to admire how hard he plays.”
An AFC executive said Sam was “short and slow.” Sam stands at 6 feet 2 inches and weighs 262 pounds.
Despite the potential setbacks, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is hoping to see Sam succeed in the league.
“I want to see Michael Sam get an opportunity to play in the NFL,” Goodell told ESPN Thursday before the first round of the NFL Draft. “We like to say the NFL is the ultimate meritocracy. If you can play football, they want to see you play. The teams want you. The fans want you. And that’s ultimately what it’s all about.”
Goodell continued: “I have great respect for Michael, his courage, his decision to become public, and I’m optimistic that he’s going to get that opportunity, and hopefully he can play at this level.”
Sam, who was the SEC’s Defensive Player of the Year, will be the first openly active gay player in the league.

Him not getting drafted is 100% regressive NFL front office groupthink bullshit. A full 100%. He's absolutely worth a 7th round lottery ticket, for as much as teams play special, nickle-based pass-rush packages. He's an NFL role player at best, but that's still plenty good enough to get drafted.

It's hard to say really.

On one hand, yeah the NFL is really regressive and this isn't a surprise. On the otherhand, this draft was so ****ing deep that UDFA period is going to be an additional draft. The new rookie structuring really ****ed over seniors and the NFL+NFLPA need to do something about it.

I could also see teams being nervous as lets be real, he could be a camp cut. The amount of media attention that cut would get I could see why teams are nervous.

Nothing is scarier to an NFL team than a potential "distraction." It's horseshit, fearful thinking, and it PLAGUES the NFL.

Thats the ONLY reason ESPN, and especially Rich I., is pimping him so much now...He actually put up the last 5 DE's taken and was asking why they were picked and not Sam. Funny, they're not doing that for any other player.

I mean he was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year... so he wasn't complete garbage by any means. Guess the whole gay thing affected his draft stock in a negative way.

Everyone talks about his bad combine, and it was bad. But they don't acknowledge that his pro day was demonstrably better.

It's just fact that him coming out affected his draft stock more than anything else. He wasn't a candidate for every team because of scheme. But for the teams he would fit in as a situational/subpackage guy? Those teams' front offices literally think that their locker rooms are fragile as glass. Any distraction can destroy a team, they think.

They literally think that their locker rooms are less stable -- that their player have less mental toughness -- than the college locker room at Missouri.

If Sam indeed goes undrafted, the almighty "distraction" remains the most powerful force in the NFL. Teams are scared to death of it.

There seems to be a bit of glee being expressed around here that Sam is going undrafted... I don't understand if.

I don't think so.

Chad Lavalais was the SEC DPotY a few years ago. He was like a 7th rounder or UDFA.

Some guys just don't have NFL bodies.
