    He came out, and within the following days his draft ratings dropped.

    But make no mistake, it is also the day that Missouri defensive end Michael Sam's stock in the NFL Draft began to drop because he announced he was gay. He was already sliding due to concerns over the dreaded 'tweener label -- with some scouts viewing him as too short for defensive end and a project to convert to stand-up linebacker following an inconsistent week at the Senior Bowl.

    NFLDraftScout.com has Sam ranked as the No. 110 overall prospect. An initial drop to 160 from 90 on Monday morning was part of a comprehensive adjustment in the rankings leading up to next week's scouting combine that generated movement among hundreds of prospects.

    Regardless we've got our first gay NFL player. Glass ceiling shattered. Now we don't have to worry about this situation anymore.

    So great, the NFL drafted its first openly gay player.

    Hopefully we won't have to hear about it anymore?

    We should not have to have heard about it in the first place.

    Just wait until the threads after the NFL cuts its first openly gay player!

    He likely won't. The Rams defensive line is beastly already. They already have depth.
