draft

Christian Sam

POSITION: Inside linebacker

COLLEGE: Arizona State

CHOSEN: Sixth round, 178th overall.

VITALS: 6-1, 244; 4.78 in the 40

STRENGTHS: Instinctive, with patient read-and-react approach. Slips blocks and is rarely knocked off course. Tackles well and can pursue sideline to sideline. Seldom out of position and is good in pass coverage.

WEAKNESSES: Sometimes fires at the wrong gap. Will under run or overrun plays. Depth of drop in coverage is occasionally too shallow. Lower leg injury wrecked his 2016 season but made 127 tackles last year. Practice habits need to improve.

PROGNOSIS: Curious that he was rated higher than he went. Seems to have all the tools and can play special teams, and weakness at the position gives him a good opportunity.
