    Weren't the rams the first team to sign a black player to a contract as well? Their inclusion of diversity as an NFL team is noteworthy.

    I actually feel sorry for Michael Sam. Everybody out there is only talking about him as a gay young man not as a football player. Knowing several gay people I know they want to simply be judged by their actions and abilities. Being gay doesn't affect Michaels ability on the football field and it shouldn't affect his draft or roster status. Let his play on the field rule the discussion. Unfortunately in society today it never will.

    The media crush is going to be like no other. I hope it doesn't affect Sam, and his opportunity to prove himself as a football player.

    Love this pick. I know everyone says he's too small and slow, but at 249 his production makes him worth a shot.

    Actually Sam and a few other players may welcome the spotlight being drawn away from them! I just hope people don't get stupid with harassment and at some point we can just talk about his football skills.

    Sam might turn out be be one of those guys that have poor numbers when it comes to measurable but when it's time to play he's an instinctive football player. Welcome to the Rams Sam!

    I am as excited about this pick just like I was excited about the George Selvie pick a couple years back. I believe we have up too early on Selvie though.

    It's going to get recognition, it just is. But this gives him even more reason to step up his game and show that he can not only make it to the NFL but play at a high level. I believe in him and I love stories like his and Mo Alexander's--we have a history with guys with humbling stories, i.e. Kurt Warner-- which makes it that much better when they both become great players

    The Rams signed the great kenny washington in 1946, first african american. They also signed woody strode a few months thereafter. Washington is one of the greatest football players of all time that most people never heard of. He was past his prime by the time he signed with the Rams. Strode went on to have roles in many movies, including the ten commandments (he plays the ethiopian king)

    ramming speed to all

    Hahaha

    Espn has been dodging the Rams left and right the entire draft. Always going to commercials when we were on the clock.

    ignore us now, betcha won't!

    Ignore the tweeter body, ignore the combine, watch the tape.

    Cant complain about the 7th round when you add the SEC DPOY there.

    Funny because NFL Network gave us nothing but Love. Said we improved our team instantly, and that along with us, Cleveland and Minnesota had the best draft. I think you're taking it a little over the top buddy.

    Its really cool actually. The Rams being that one team to have the guts to take a step towards something bigger than football. I'm proud of them.

    I think you should've edited the post rather than deleted it MoonJoe. I don't care much about his sexual orientation, makes a nice feel good story perhaps. I just hope the kid's mainly focused on becoming a productive NFL player.
