I thought it was common knowledge that Mays wasn't going to see the field this year. I wasn't a big fan of the pick at the time, but I can see that he has some potential. It took Goldson 3 years before he saw the field and it has taken Reggie Smith 3 years as well before he even started to make in impact in TC.
Add that to the fact that Mays always had questionable coverage skills and you have what we have today.
I also believe Manusky prefers to take is slow with safeties because they play a big part in relaying pre-snap adjustments. In that regard they really have to know the whole defense and not just their own position.
So don't write him off just yet....
Yeah I mean I just see him as a high pick so it's hard for me to compare him to a Goldson.
I just never liked the pick because I didn't see him making any impact in the short term which is what I wanted with a 2nd.
We'll see how it works out...but there's really no question that he doesn't have ball skills ATM...the most important skill you need as a S.
