Draft-Eligible Missouri DE Michael Sam Comes Out

Michael Sam (52) came out as gay and is eligible for the draft in May. - Joe Robbins

Don't know if you have seen this, but Mizzou DE and SEC Defensive Player of the Year came out as gay. The information is now starting to circulate online, but the first link I got was from Chat Sports here.

Sam is projected as a mid-round pick and I am very curious to see where he actually gets drafted now, compared to where he was projected to be drafted before coming out as gay.

If drafted, Sam would be the first openly gay active NFL player.

I have one nagging question though: how would Jonathan Vilma feel about it if the Saints drafted Sam in the middle rounds?
