Michael Sam sure seems ready for all the attention.
Sam disagreed that his sexuality had been a secret at Missouri (he had come out to his teammates before last season).
Sam shared the dais with five other players taken in the sixth and seventh round Saturday as the draft came to a close.
The Rams grabbed Sam even though they didn't need help at defensive end, where they have a pair of first-round picks as starters.
''Shortly before we got to our pick, Michael's value as a football player was off the charts,'' Fisher said.
