Will announcement affect Sam's draft stock?

How do you think Michael Sam's coming out will affect his draft stock? In the end (like many say with quarterbacks) it only takes one team to fall in love with a player for him to get picked. So while some might consider him a "media distraction", others will see that he was the sack leader in the nations best college conference. I sure hope that his sexual orientation won't affect his draft stock -- and the NFL should be proud to welcome an open member of the gay community. Thoughts on the social change this might cause on the NFL? And on Sam's draft stock?
