The St. Louis Rams made their penultimate pick a historic one.

Michael Sam, a unanimous All-American and Co-SEC Defensive Player of the Year from the Missouri Tigers goes to the Rams as the 249th overall selection in the draft.

Sam led the conference with 11.5 sacks and was a big part of a record-breaking 12-2 season for the Missouri Tigers.

He joins fellow Mizzou draft pick EJ Gaines along with WR TJ Moe and Tim Barnes who both went to Missouri.
