Apparently bettors can lay down money on absolutely anything nowadays. The latest line to hit Vegas is Michael Sam’s NFL draft position following the announcement that he is gay.
Bovada has set the current line at position 125.5, which would put him in the late 4th round.

Sam is coming off a banner year for the Missouri Tigers. In a conference known for its defensive stars, the redshirt senior was named the 2013 SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Sam was 8th in the country in sacks with 11.5. He helped lead his Tigers all the way to the SEC East title and appearance in the SEC Championship Game against Auburn.
Sexual orientation aside, the guy can play football. Hopefully NFL franchises judge him on that.
