This is huge.

Be interesting to see what happens to the SEC Defensive Player of the Year during the draft for the most homophobic professional sport in the world.

Wow.  Very interesting.  He's listed as a mid-round prospect by most sites and had 18.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks in the SEC.  This isn't some guy who is just putting his name in the draft knowing he has no realistic NFL chance and then coming out of the closet for attention.  Dude is a legit prospect.

Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised to see him go undrafted now. Courageous of him to do regardless.

Good for him, he is a great player too. The fact that he told his team in August and they stayed together and had a great year showed that it clearly wasn't a problem in the locker room. Wishing him the best of luck for his NFL career.

Good for him but I would think financially it would be wise to wait til he got drafted but more power to him

Guy has a lot of courage.  Hope it will not be long before that is not big news.

Nice as an edge rusher, but not big enough to play the run well and lacks the agility and footwork to play as an OLB in a 3-4.  Basically he can only go forward.  He'd be nice depth at DE.

I hope he doesn't end up in our division, because I'll hate having to hate him.

He is really, really good. He's going to dominate as an OLB in a 34. Could be Ware-esque.

Looks like he's 6'2" 255, kind of small for our defense.

I disagree. I think he has the ability to dip and rip with the best of them. And it wasn't like he was beating no-names in college (he beat them consistently btw) but potential top picks like Tiny, Cyrus, etc.
