Christine Michael looking forward with draft weekend looming

Audio/Story posted April 24, 2013 in Sports, CommRadio, NFL Draft by Patrick Woo

Christine Michael has had to overcome a lot in the last four years at Texas A&M on his path to the NFL Draft.

Michael was averaging 6.0 yards per carry his junior season before he tore his ACL. When Michael returned for his senior year, he saw limited carries in new head coach Kevin Sumlin’s offense.

Michael is one of the most talented running backs in the draft but now must also overcome character concerns. He didn’t help his case at the NFL Combine when he overslept and missed meetings with teams.

With all of that on his shoulders, Michael is looking forward to moving on and ready to step up and make a change, he said.

“I can’t sit up here and say I’m perfect,” Michael said, “but I’m not this bad guy that any coach or any GM would have to go to bed nervous at night.”

As for overcoming his injuries, Michael is fully healthy now and cited Adrian Peterson and Marcus Lattimore as success stories he’d like to follow.
