Michael Sam, 1st openly gay football player drafted

This guy Sam was drafted in the 7th round, and not too many 7th rounders have an NFL career.

He's either going to be a beast or out the league

I dont see how he can be a beast being that he is undersized for his position, and is not a very fast defensive end. He is going to have to step up his game, but I dont see him getting faster at this point in his career.

@1- Good points, but he was pretty good at Missouri, a SEC team. How did he do at pro day? I didn't hear anything mentioned about him but I may have missed it.

@Bunknown- Maybe so, especially since I heard that they are trying to do a reality show about him and the Rams are not happy about it. He may end up bringing unwanted attention and become a distraction, that you may be right.

Stephen Jackson on ESPN and Michael Sam incident, at 4:22 I am going to agree with Stephen Jackson.

I agree with Stephen Jackson as well! I have a gay aunt and love her like anyone else! On the flip side, I don't want my kids watching that kind of stuff! It is basically obscene! Gay people need to keep that stuff behind closed doors! Personally, I don't believe in Gay marriage, but I will at least grant them the respect of being able to be with who they want. I don't want to see it though and they should respect the rest of us for that! I don't get it, they are trying to legitimize something that is not legitimate! When I was screwing up in life "Drugs and Gangs", I never tried to rationalize my behavior as something good! I knew I was messing up! Personally I think homosexuals should do the same! If I was screwing some dude I sure as hell would not be trying to play it out as something that was right! I would think that I would have enough sense to at least admit that I was attracted to something that I should not be! Gay people are trying to force us to accept their unions as something that is normal or natural when it is not! Just saying! Some people may think that I messed up for saying all this, but it is just how I feel! In this country you can do whatever you want, but it does not make it right!

Well said Silentwssj, I agree.
