Prospect Primer: DE Michael Sam, Missouri

Posted Apr 14, 2014

Name: Michael Sam

Position: DE

Ht.-Wt.: 6-2, 261

School: Missouri

Key stat: Boosted his sack total from 4 ½ in 2012 to 11 ½ in 2013, and his tackles for loss from seven to 19, in earning co-defensive player of the year honors in the SEC.

Notable: Announced in the weeks leading up to the scouting combine that he’s gay, which will make him the first openly gay player in the NFL. Draft status has been unpredictable since the announcement, with mediocre testing results at the combine not helping in that respect.
