There was a huge crowd on hand to watch Michael Sam put up his bench press for Missouri’s Pro Day. There are a few NFL ready prospects in Missouri, but a lot of the attraction is drawn by Sam. Sam will be the first openly gay football player in the league and he is getting the attention from the media. Just look at the attention that he drew today:

The attention will be good for some of his teammates. Extra scouts might be on hand in order to check things out.
Sam better be prepped for the extra attention that he will be bringing with him. If the bench pres on his Pro Day is any indication, he is going to have some followers.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and defensive coordinator Billy Davis were among several dozen NFL Personnel that were in attendance for the festivities, per Tony Softli.
