Michael Sam's draft stock got a much-needed boost at his Pro Day Thursday.

The Missouri defensive end, who made headlines earlier this off-season after announcing that he was gay, improved upon his numbers from the NFL Combine in February – numbers that put Sam's draft stock very much in question.

At Missouri's annual prospect talent show, the SEC defensive player of the year improved his bench press numbers, 40-yard dash time, and vertical jump, according to reports.

Sam lifted 225 pounds 19 times, ran an unofficial 4.69 40-yard dash, and jumped 30 inches, numbers which according to reports, scouts believe will get Sam drafted.

His draft stock was in doubt after a poor showing at the Combine, but Thursday's performance certainly helped his cause.
