Missouri DE Michael Sam had one of the most underwhelming combine performances this year. After leading the SEC in sacks, Sam came to the combine looking much less athletic than he does on tape. Generally he did not test well.

At his pro day Michael Sam improved his numbers. He ran a 4.7 and benched 19 times. That is more in line with what scouts want to see. As I’ve said, Sam is simply a “gamer” type of pass rusher. You know what you’re getting with him minus the circus. He is never going to test well and likely won’t put up historic numbers. He’s a rotational pass rusher and that is worth a 5th round pick at best.
