Official time 4.91 in the 40 for Sam

Relative to the rest of the defensive linemen, Sam's time was only slightly above average. Among 42 defensive linemen who participated in the 40-yard dash, Sam's 4.91 tied for 18th with Princeton defensive tackle Caraun Reid. South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney posted the fastest time for the position at 4.53.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...outing-combine

For LBs that time would put Sam 23rd out of 28

http://www.nfl.com/combine/tracker?i...MP&position=DL

That compares to this freakishly athletic time for someone 70 pounds heavier

If you needed any validation that former Auburn tackle Greg Robinson is a top NFL prospect, he showed why once again Saturday morning when he ran an official 4.92 and an unofficial 40 time of 4.84 with a 1.68 10-yard split. Robinson weighs 332 lbs.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...cial-484-in-40

Sam was middle of the DL pack on long jump at 114 inches (Clowney second at 124) - again among the lower results for LBs

http://www.nfl.com/combine/tracker?i...MP&position=DL

This NFL.com site is a good resource for combine results - pick a workout and a position then results can be sorted

http://www.nfl.com/combine/tracker




Sam did not appear to help himself with his combine scores

But according to Ozzie Newsome, who is among those on the competition committee deciding whether to propose speech codes, that unfortunate situation may be improving for Mr. Rice and the Ravens

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said something telling about the alleged altercation between running back Ray Rice and his fiancée, Janay Palmer, at an Atlantic City casino last weekend. “Right now, I feel very good about his side of the story.”
