Michael Sam Runs 4.79 and 4.84-Second 40


A lot of eyes are on Michael Sam during the NFL Combine. A lot of people want to see how he performs out in Indianapolis. Sam just finished his 40-yard dash and ran a 4.79 and 4.84 second unofficial time.

Not very impressive times for Sam today. There are heavier guys on the defensive line that were able to put up better number in the drill. This also follows a disappointing showing on the bench. He was only able to put up 17 repetotions of 225 pounds on the bench. That was the second-worst showing of all the defensive line that were invited to the combine.

Sam did well in front of the media though. He was able to handle that showing, it is just the physical abilities are going to be in question with some of the measurements that he posted during the combine.

In the end, we all just want to know how he performs on the field. The combine might make him slide down some draft boards, but he has shown that he can produce on the football field in his college career.
