Could Michael Sam be a draft target for Baltimore Ravens?

Michael Sam was among a list of players to speak with members of the Baltimore Ravens front office during the NFL combine, according to reports.

The defensive end from Missouri was headline news after he announced to the world that he was gay prior to the combine in Indianapolis. 

If he were to be drafted this year, he would become the first openly gay player to play in the NFL. There has been some debate in the media as to which teams would be willing to take on the responsibility and inevitable media circus of that selection.

The Baltimore Ravens do not necessarily need a pass rusher such as Sam, they recorded 40 team sacks which was the 16th best in the league but they could always do with an upgrade. They have re-signed linebacker Terrell Suggs and will look to have Haloti Ngata back for a full season after some injury troubles.

The team did however meet with Sam, Jeremiah Attaochu, Dee Ford, Chris Borland and Ra'Shede Hageman who are all defensive lineman. 

The Ravens only have four picks going into this year's draft and so will have to be careful with the selections that they do make. Only time will tell if Sam is a player that the Ravens would like to take a gamble on.
