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.

There are two people who are upset. Tex is pissed because this story was pimped when other stories were ignored. You're upset because you're a ****ing idiot and can't seem to grasp that this guy is a low level prospect who's claim to fame is that he came out as a homosexual, and not that he's expected to be great in the NFL.

Not upset in the least.

But ridiculing someone by suggesting they are gay is the epitome of a gay slur.

Or perhaps you could explain how 'Do you make your lover wear an Obama mask?' poses an inquiry about why someone is upset.

No, anybody who says this isn't a big story... Is simply being obtuse, or doesn't like the content. I sense the later.

But it is stupid of me to argue about it on this forum, I admit.

Could you point to what exactly made this, in the words of Eisen, 'the most dramatic 7th round I've ever seen?'

Your point is that they are covering a big story? OK well thanks for that stroke of brilliance I guess.

It's not a big story. It's a political hype job but, as a story, it's nothing. You're confusing the two, which isn't surprising.

Bingo! The pimping was pathetic. How do you think those other DE's felt when Rich actually listed their names and asked how come they were picked and not Michael Sam? That was WAY over the top and biased. THATS what pisses me off.
