Michael Sam didn’t have the best showing at the combine, but the relentlessness and drive he shows on tape is going to appeal to head coach Gus Bradley. He didn’t showcase the speed needed to play outside linebacker, but I think he can still play end in pass rush situations and occasionally drop back in coverage.
