I dont understand, he was drafted in the 2nd round, he can play football... all the things he needs to learn can be taught so whats the problem? Have him play a year or two behind Lewis and he should tear it up. He's a smart kid.
I like this pick, I think Mays has what it takes to play in this league.
Mays, Wills, Spikes, Smith this D is going to be INTENSE....I have a good feeling about the way this team is headed, Singeltary is imposing his mindset on this team and they will hit until they can't hit no mo!
lets hope these superstars can develop some chemistry and get some more rings. Whole lot of talent to work with. Smith ,Sing,Oline ....Nobody has ANY excuses . bout time we got some talent to put behind WILLIS..There is good reason for the niners to have the hype. We got better on O and D and special teams ,were young driven and coming up!!

Quote: Mays is an athletic freak of nature who produced eye-popping numbers during the physical portion of the NFL combine. His play-making skills have been called into question, which is why he fell to this point, but he could ultimately team with emerging star Dashon Goldson to give the 49ers the most dynamic young safety duo in the league.
There's alot of unknown about Mays, and Sing indicated as much, because of the way he was coached and used at USC.
At the very least in the worst case, he can probably do everything that Mike Lewis does for us now for another 5 years or so after Lewis is gone because of salary/injury concerns.
Yeah I think most of us would've preferred Nate Allen, but we simply didn't have enough ammo to trade up and get him. I'm satisfied with Mays and excited to see if he can be coached up into something more than a strictly in-the-box safety.
