    Actually, before he came out most experts projected he would go someone in the 3-5th rounds.

    except he wasn't living a lie,he had already came out to everyone in his life.... his public coming out was something entirely different.

    like you said before, I think he was getting out in front of it.. and I think he was most likely hoping for some good national PR going into the draft.

    He said he didn't come out to his father a week before he came out publicly. That is a rather big deal.

    Um, no. He was projected as a 3rd-4th round pick. Did you even read about this prior to this thread?

    It's entirely likely he was drafted just so the Rams could say they were first in accepting gays.
    Unlikely. The Rams are clearly shoring up their defense. It's no surprise they picked up Defensive players.

    Worst possible team for him to be drafted. Only because he won't play. Their line is Ridonkulous. They are so deep I doubt he will make the team.

    NFC West is by far the toughest division in football.

    Wilson, Kaepernick and Palmer better lace up their cleats. It's going to be vicious.

    When was that? From what I saw the best he could have done was to be drafted in the fifth round. More people than not were saying sixth or seventh round, but plenty were saying he wouldn't be drafted at all.

    If anything, it hurt his prospects.
    Obviously it did!

    And? Are we supposed to care about a football player that was drafted 300+?
