Missouri’s Michael Sam Allows ESPN To Film Him On Final Draft Day After Declining Original Coverage
Michael Sam originally denied ESPN and the NFL Network’s requests to have cameras on him during the NFL Draft. The former Missouri defensive end announced he is gay following the 2013 season and, thus, is one of the more intriguing prospects in the NFL Draft.
It appears Sam has changed his mind, though.

It comes as a slight surprise, since many believed Sam wanted to remain in private during this weekend. There is a decent chance Sam will not be drafted. The NFL Draft’s fourth round begins Saturday at 12 p.m. E.T.
