Horrible. I will be pissed if we draft Taylor Mays in the first round.
I can has Roy Williams II.
Can anyone explain what they don't lime about Mays? He plays a position of major need, is a good kid, an intimidating hitter, and a perfect deep safety. Put Mays into the Atl game and no way Roddy White gets the 90 yard TD, he gets the first down and pays heavily for it
You evidently dont watch many USC games. Yes he tries to be an intimidating hitter. I think you vastly overrate him though. He always tries for the big hit rather than just get the tackle. He also is NOT a playmaker at all and I really think he is having an off year compared to last year.
He would absolutley not be a perfect deep safety and I doubt that is where he will play. I think he will play SS and be close to the line of scrimmage.
Finally, while safety is a position of need it is hardly our main position of need. Offensive tackle, OLB, CB, RB.. all bigger needs in my opinion. Mays would simply not be a good pick in rd 1 for this team.
