He better break out this year or it's Eric Berry or Taylor Mays that comes to town!
I say we still grab one of them, preferably Taylor Mays since Michael Lewis isn't getting any younger.
Having seen both of them play several times,I would rate Berry as a better choice.He is faster,gets more interceptions and is just as sure a tackler as Mays.I know you west coast guys probably like the USC guy better,but Berry can play every defensive back position at a high level,whereas Mays is really an undersized linebacker.
Mays is really an undersized linebacker??? are you kidding me?
The dude runs like a 4.3-4.4 40 yard dash.
He hits like Ray Lewis
He's 6'3 230lbs.
I'm sure he could play linebacker if he wanted to, but I would re-phrase your quote from being an undersized linebacker... to a freak of nature defensive back.
The guy can lay the wood. He puts fear in recievers, running backs, and tight ends.
And I know some of you may say he's weak in coverage, but anybody remember a guy named Ronnie Lott??? He didn't need to be the best at covering receivers because he just knocked the living sh*t out of them when they caught the ball to cause incomplete passes, which are just as good as breaking up passes.
We need a "Patrick Willis" in our secondary, and IMO, I think Mays would be the perfect fit.
