SBOBET Former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam previously said he wanted to be judged only by his athletic performance, not his sexual orientation.
If that is the case, Sam is not going to like the reviews of his NFL scouting combine performance.
Sam participated in several drills on Monday, and delivered a poor performance in four important activities. His lackluster output reinforced why many NFL draft analysts believe Sam will likely be a mid-to-late-round draft pick who will have to make a roster as a special teams player.
Here are some of Sam’s numbers compared to other defensive linemen on Monday afternoon:
• 40-yard dash: 4.91 seconds (tied for 18th • Bench press (225 pounds): 17 reps (tied for 47th/second to last) • Vertical jump: 25.5 inches (tied for 39th) • Broad jump: 114 inches (tied for 14th)

GClub Casino – The mystery of the first overall pick wasn’t sorted out over the weekend at the NFL scouting combine.
The Houston Texans are still keeping everyone guessing. This week their strategy was to not publicly eliminate any possibility. Perhaps they haven’t narrowed it down to a few choices yet, but even if they have it seems nobody really knows who the final few candidates are.
จีคลับคาสิโนออนไลน์ But after the combine, we can at least take a stab at handicapping it. The good news for the Texans is this is a deep and talented draft, and they have plenty of options at No. 1 overall. Here’s our best guess on the chances each player ends up as the first pick:
Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, 35 percent: It would be a surprise if the Texans didn’t draft a quarterback. You don’t get many opportunities like this, and Matt Schaub and Case Keenum aren’t the answer. So you start there.
And Bridgewater seems like the smart pick. Maybe it’s a bit safe, but he has tremendous strengths and not many weaknesses. The fact that he weighed in at 214 pounds and is capable of adding more eases concerns about him being too slight. This is the easiest pick for Houston.
