Michael Sam is the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, and, after completing his college career, he came out as gay. Before this revelation, he was at least the third pick.

Anonymous sources to draft analysts have, according to Sports Illustrated, said that he has dropped to thirteenth since then, presumably because coaches don't want controversy.

My request is simple: Can he have his old position back, please?

We, the undersigned, petition the NFL to give Michael Sam his old spot as third pick for an NFL team.
