Mays 4.24 unofficial
I know. WHOA!
I want to draft him.
of course you do...
Still, I wanted to get takes on him as a SS in OUR D. I know that M. Lewis is more of a LB/SS tweener in our D depending on the coverage. He seems to be playing the run first all the time and then out more on third downs.
Can Mays be a M. Lewis type of a player in our D? I don't see M. Lewis doing much covering, but re-covering. If that is the case, Mays could recover much faster and with some coaching be taught how to cover better.
Don't be surprised if, now, he becomes the talk for the 49ers as we need as SS along with E. Thomas in the first.
Could he become the V. Davis of our safeties, but develop faster...like within the first year.
This thought has been scratching the back of my mind since the Senior Bowl when he made some nice plays. Still, very unproductive based on his college and skill level. I expect E. Thomas #s from him...
The thing that concerns me about Mays is not his coverage, which isn't great. It's his approach to tackling. The guy doesn't seem to wrap people up. He goes for the big hit, and allows players to bounce off and keep going while he's face down in the dirt. That may have worked in college against inferior competition, but in the NFL, if he tries to do that to the Stephen Jackson's of the world, he's going to be face down in the dirt too often.
