    Should be interesting. I just hope the media doesn't push for him to start when he shouldn't be

    Nah, I think this is the perfect place for him. He can learn from the best, it opens the door, and nobody in their right mind will ever expect him to start over the talent we have on the line, so his sexual orientation wont mean a thing.

    I seriously doubt that nor that Fisher would care, my worry is THIS MEANS Goodell decides the PR of putting us on Hard Knocks is too good to pass on

    There's no way the media even could think he could start over Quinn or Long, surely...

    Good place for Michael Sam. We have a good locker room. I'm happy for him.

    I think he'll be a good pass rush specialist. I like the pick. Happy for the kid. Don't blame him for the crap the media does

    The kid can play, perfect fit for us and him. He gets to learn from the best in the business

    I like Fisher's attitude, "He was the co-SEC defensive player of the year", said it with a tone of "Are you kidding me, why wouldn't we take this guy?"

    Will those Mother Freakers from Westboro Baptist Church be protesting Rams games now?

    Emotional guy, I can't blame him, after the slide you know it's a big relief. No idea he had a boyfriend though.

    I just wish the 9ers could have drafted him instead.

    Great pick! This guy is a damn good football player and a great leader. Good for him, good for the Rams and lets go smash the freak out of the NFC West now!

    The way he was rubbing his arm, I figured it must have been. I think it's funny how NFLN completely ignored the rest of the draft, Mayock even said "I haven't even been paying attention"

    It's nice to get good press, lot of support from everyone. The Seahawks get press for their players pissing hot. The 49ers have their players getting arrested. Meanwhile the Rams breaking new ground.

    Very proud of our organisation. He's a football player, we need football players. Nothing else matters.
