New Rams defensive end Michael Sam believes he should have been drafted within the first three rounds. instead of the 7th round.
“From last season alone, I should’ve been in the first three rounds. SEC Defensive Player of the Year, All-American,” Sam said, per CBS St. Louis.
The frustration mounted for Sam as the hours and rounds passed by, but he felt he would be picked.
“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,” Sam said.
Before Sam came out and admitted he’s gay, he was projected as a late-round pick that might not even get drafted. He’s lucky the Rams took him.
