The comparison in the NFL is Trent Cole according to the analysis as far as player ability.

Actually ****ing a farm animal is a criminal offense.

I could change it up to is the sword swallower going to take it in the ass or get drafted?

Maybe he will have to go play in that womens league where they wear panties? They won't even mind him in the locker room.

I jest i jest I'm sure he could kick the **** out of me lol.

It would be funnier if he was a tight end.

I'm trying to think of a SEC D player of the year that wasn't drafted in the first round.

It wouldn't be a circus. I don't think people will really consider it a deal at all after a week.

Back to back kickers taken midway through the 7th round. No Sam. He's not getting drafted. I'm beginning to wonder if a team is even going to bring him into camp.

Jarvis jones, Morris Claiborne, Patrick Peterson, Rolando McLain, Eric Berry, Glenn Dorsey, Patrick Willis, Demeco Ryans, David Pollack, Chad Lavalais

If he were that caliber player he'd have been drafted by now.

I remember before he came out they were saying he may be the rare case of a SEC d player of the year that slides out of the first. He was still projected to go in the top 4 rounds. Rang dropped him from 90 to 160 because of his announcement alone.

Bull****. Couldn't watch predraft coverage without a story on Sam. The top training camp story will be will Sam make the team? If he does, the next story will be how are his teammates treating him? And "why isn't he starting?" The media is already trying to make him the next Jackie Robinson.

But if he doesn't make the team, there will be hell to pay. Possible protests, talk shows b****ing etc etc. something the Broncos DON'T NEED right now.

I don't mind the Broncos drafting the 4th or 5th openly gay player, but not the 1st.

Not this year though. I'm confident Elway will not invite that circus back after getting rid of it 2 years ago.
I think there are teams that can use any media attention. Jags and Bills for example. As a UDFA, there is no wasted picks. I think if he doesn't come out, he probably is at least a late rounder or teams would be knocking down his door for an invite to camp.

Hope the Jets give him a shot. His former roomie - Sheldon Richardson - is very supportive of him, and thinks he's a big time player.

Jackie Robinson was an amazing player. How dare you.

Sam The Ram....sounds like a Dr. Suess book.

Sam 'Yes, I am' the Ram, is he the one who Rams the ham or does another cram the ham in Sam the Ram?

He is well liked there.

I bet it's hot and humid in Missouri, but I like the Cardinals.

I was just kidding. I lived in MO for a year, in KC. The weather sucks there, except the fall. I ran to CO, after living there one year.

But I agree, they will more likely be friendlier to him there given his school affiliation and ties already there. I hope he plays lights out and shuts everyone the hell up.
