Sam has dropped 13 pounds in an attempt to get faster for special teams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sam is unlikely to get much work on the defensive line with the depth St. Louis has, so he has to make himself appear more versatile. He's impressed coaches so far this offseason, so if he can keep it up, he has a decent shot at making the team.
The Rams selected Sam in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 249th overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sam had a fine career at Missouri, but he never showed a great deal of NFL-level skill, and his Combine workouts were very poor. He'll get a fair chance to make the St. Louis roster as a rotational end.
Sam, the first openly gay NFL draft prospect, is projected as a fourth-round pick in this coming May's draft by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., NESN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sam, who was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year this past season, recorded 11.5 sacks during his senior campaign at Missouri. At 6-2, 255, he lacks ideal size for a defensive end, but it's worth noting that the players that Kiper compared him to -- Chiefs OLB Justin Houston, Seahawks DE Cliff Avril and Colts OLB Robert Mathis -- have all been productive pass rushers at the NFL level. We think he's more Mark Anderson than he is Houston, Avril, or Mathis, however.
