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.
