Poll: Should Patriots draft Michael Sam?

Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, announced Sunday that he is gay.
Sam is projected to go in the third round in May’s NFL draft, although there is concern that his coming out could affect his status. There has never been an active NFL player who has acknowledged his homosexuality.
Assuming Sam is available to the Patriots, do you think they should draft him?
