Michael Sam has officially made NFL history.
The St. Louis Rams selected Sam in the seventh round with the 249th overall pick. When Sam received the phone call from the Rams, he began to break down.
After being selected, Sam is on his way to potentially becoming the first openly gay active player in the NFL.
Watch the video above to see Sam's reaction in what was arguably one of the greatest moments from this year's draft.
After the phone call, Sam sent out a tweet to thank the Rams organization and the city of St. Louis:
Thank you to the St. Louis Rams and the whole city of St. Louis. I'm using every once of this to achieve greatness!! pic.twitter.com/QESdOJVzsw— Michael Sam (@MikeSamFootball) May 10, 2014
