10:28 AM ET 02.16 | Michael Sam received a standing ovation when he appeared on the arena video boards during Missouri's basketball game against Tennessee on Saturday. The All-America defensive end who could became the first openly gay player in the NFL, later blew a kiss to the student section and shook hands with fans. Sam and football team were honored at halftime for their Cotton Bowl over Oklahoma State. Wearing a shirt declaring "We Are All CoMo Sexuals," 51-year-old Michelle Carmichael joined more than a thousand others in forming a line of support for Sam. She didn't hesitate to answer why. "Because Michael Sam stood up for Mizzou his entire career and we need to stand up for him," she said.

Yeah, saw that one scout said he watched 12 games of film on the guy and that he was the 4th best pass rusher - on his team. Now everyone will freak out when he goes in the 6-7th round.

Agreed. He's a nickel pass rusher in the NFL. Teams don't spend high draft picks on specialty players who won't be on the field every play (Cleveland being the exception).

I expect the media will make a big deal about his draft position and his orientation in order to sell soap, and society's lemmings will buy it hook line and sinker.

49ers may take him early-mid rounds, just because he would sell tickets for them. It's always about the money. Other than that, I agree with, Other Tin Man Sucks!
