I heard on the radio today that after the workout Michael Sam did at the combine, that he is undraftable.
If you are a 6th or 7th round choice, the best the team can hope for is a practice squad guy. But who would draft a practice squad guy for the media circus that would come with him?
I bet he gets drafted by the Steelers. Steelers owners think they are nessiah-like heros, who are better than anyone else.
The only noise he made at the combine here in Indy was in the press room.
His on-field work was not good.
Too slow for linebacker, too small/weak for lineman.
Of course back when I was working in industry, there was always pressure to hire “diversity” candidates...

My theory all along has been that Sams knows he's a long shot for the NFL and he did the gay thing hoping some team would pick him up for good media attention.
I think it will backfire because if someone drafts him and later cuts him at the end of the preseason the media and gay lobby will be all over them. Pass on this circus.
He appears to be too slow and too weak to be an NFL defensive end or outside linebacker. He might be able to overcome those shortcomings if he has great football sense. Some players just have a feel for the game that puts them in the right position to make plays. I don't know if he has that ability but I think he'll need it to play in the NFL.
