Re: NFL draft prospect Michael Sam comes out
i don't think he really has a place here as a slow tweener (covering routes or rushing). big props to him, but i don't see his film as a match unless we're taking him as a backup.
and the problem won't be him, it'll be the media circus and advertising blitzkrieg that'll be following him around, whether he likes it or not. he was originally going to avoid that by telling the GM/coaches privately, but once he realized the information was (likely) going to surface from other sources, he got in front of it.
don't get me wrong, he's handled this whole pretty much perfectly, and it does show a lot of courage. I think the best place for him would be with a Belichick or Andy Reid. someone that's able to bore the media to death at will.
