A lot of people are hating on Mays in this site.I think with the right coaching his lack of cover-skills and wrap up tackling will be solved. He has more physical talent then most people in this draft and it will show. Give Sing this off-season to work on it and you will see the difference. He will be feared by recievers going over the middle. You all hate now but if we draft him and its 3rd down 9 yards to go. arizona with the ball and Fitzgerald is going for the catch over the middle late in the game, and Mays lays him out on his back, all of you will be cheering about how great he is. I want him on this team. His upside is too good.
I cheered when Rashaun Woods scored a TD in a pre-season too. That means nothing. The fact is, Mays have almost zero ball skills and it's one of those things that is very hard to acquire. It's mostly about instincts and its not like USC didn't have good defensive coaches. But, lets forget his balls skills for now. He is not very good in changing directions and turning hips and running back - for a safety.
Mays should actually switch to 4-3 OLB - he will be terrific there.
