I was all over this guy last year (before he said he was staying in school) as the Pats pick for a Safety. He would have gone in the first half of the first round last year, but he is going to drop maybe out of the first round this year. His play at Safety as been, uninspired at best. I watched USC play and he seem, apathetic. I guess he wasn't used to losing. He has great size and toughness, here is something very interesting that I found on GBN: It is from: Paul Guillemette, editor of Paulâs Pigskin Place and publisher of a newsletter FS TAYLOR MAYS, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, 6-5, 230 ... Mays may be one of the most overrated players in the 2010 draft class who reminds a lot of former Oklahoma SS Roy Williams. Mays is at least a step too late in coverage much of the time, plus he goes for the big hit too often at the expense of a secure wrap-up tackle. Mays will post exceptional triangle numbers, but I think he is a bit stiff in the hips. He will also get more than his share of roughness and late-hit penalties as a rookie in the NFL unless he changes his technique a bit. Mays is still a first-round prospect, but I think the projection will be with an OLB position in mind. That's going to be a bit of an ego battle is my guess like Thomas Davis went through when he first arrived in Carolina, but he has been very productive as an OLB for the Panthers. I cried for Thomas Howard as a late round pass rusher, but I wonder if this would work? Mays certainly has the size, he is 30 pounds lighter but can easily bulk up to be the same size as Willie McGinest! Now, I am not saying lets take a flier with the 1st rd pick on converting a guy from Safety to OLB, but it is an interesting theory. I wonder what happens if he falls into the second round?
