The NFL got record ratings when Johnny Manziel slid into the bottom third of the first round.
While the numbers won’t be nearly as big, there remains exactly one storyline left as we’re through six rounds of the NFL Draft.
So far, no one has turned in a card with Missouri defensive end Michael Sam’s name on it.
The SEC’s co-defensive player of the year, who also happens to be openly gay, has been the subject of intense pre-draft scrutiny since just before the Scouting Combine.
But unless someone makes a move in the next hour or so, the NFL will have to defend itself against charges of bias, fairly or unfairly.
So far, we’ve seen guys with recently torn ACLs, Canadian tackles, former basketball players and small-school wonders come off the board.
But no one has expressed interest in a guy who had 11.5 sacks in the SEC last year.
