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.

Remember vontaze burfict or whatever from Arizona sun devils

He went un drafted to Cincy and beast raped people. I was hooing we could have drafted that guy with our 7th.

Nowadays freedom of speech is gone and you can't say anything about gay people without feeling the fallout. Actions speak the loudest and nobody wants to draft the gay guy it looks like

There are better players than Sam who've still not been drafted. Get over it.

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.
He's not big enough to play DE in an NFL 4-3 and he doesn't have the first step or quickness to play OLB in a 3-4. He's a tweener with horrible measurables...

Call me crazy, but I feel like Dorsey/Reid would totally welcome Sam into the Chiefs locker room as a camp body to see if he could fight for a spot. They really seem to give the least ****s about how the media perceives anything they do, and I think Andy Reid would be a solid mentor if the guy truly does have something inside of him that makes him a competitor.

Then when we cut him, it will be a hate crime

I honestly wish he was good enough. But he feasted on college level competition. He was in a good conference and acquitted himself well. But he had an eye for the slow O-lineman or the glaring unblocked path to the QB that pops up. Those things aren't going to show up in the NFL.

I made a joke about Grigsby, but that's who he reminds me off. Tough, good attitude, but enough undersized and slow to get engulfed.

And now the Rams take him. Good luck cracking that line. Actually he might feast a bit on situational downs where his teammates create for his skillset.
