    And why is that? If you had the slightest notion how suffocating the closet is, you wouldn't make such assumptions

    Then there was decent performance at pro day and the combine never solely determines anyone's draft status. 4 years of performance in college does and should have some bearing. Every analysis i read listed him 5th-early 7th round if not for coming out even after combine, so your position that 7th was "very generous" and some kind of favor to the homos is bull****

    Yeah a tactic that's been used SO often in pro sports no less

    Due to him coming out yes...

    Projected 3rd-4th before that

    Then GMs are imbeciles to pass him up over and over just because of a single bad day of running without pads and lifting weights, as opposed to 4 years of on field competition. But that's all a lie to feed attention to combine anyway. No one's draft status plummets 4 goddamn rounds cause of the combine. Not unless they're the 1st gay prospect anyway.

    He's already a great player, SEC defender of year. Nothing to do with his sexuality. It's only actually relevant to all those fools who think gays aren't "real men". Rest of us knew all along there have been plenty in NFL all this time

    When did I suggest it's any kind of insult? Did I criticize the dude's athletic ability?
