Watch: Michael Sam's powerful draft commercial for Visa

Michael Sam Visa commercial reflects the character of a hard-working, driven future NFL player.

Love love love this commercial for Visa featuring Michael Sam. In the commercial he talks about his perceived shortcomings - a slower-than-expected 40 time at the NFL Combine - and welcomes judgment for that (along with, of course, his ability to win games). The subtext is that he doesn't want to be judged for being gay a message he has shared publicly several times.

The ad reflects Sam's character: A guy who knows he's not perfect but is driven to be the best football player he can be.

Cannot wait to see who drafts this guy.
