This makes him the first openly gay player to be drafted into the league. As was expected, cameras were rolling, filming his reaction to winning a slot within the NFL family. With his family and close boyfriend in attendance for support, Michael broke down emotionally when he learned the news. Tears, hugs and a kiss planted on his boyfriend sent media on a buzz. Check out his reaction.

Afterward, he tweeted:

Thank you to the St. Louis Rams and the whole city of St. Louis. ’m using every [ounce] of this to achieve greatness!!

He was the 249th overall pick. Congrats!
