Michael Sam Believes He Is Better Than Fifth-Round Status

NFL Draft Football

St. Louis Rams defensive end Michael Sam believes he should have been drafted earlier than he was.

Sam was selected late in the seventh round and said that NFL teams checkened out on him.

“From last season alone, I should’ve been in the first three rounds. SEC Defensive Player of the Year, All-American,” Sam said, via the Associated Press. “I knew I was going to get picked somewhere. Every team that passed me, I was thinking how I’m going to sack their quarterback.”
