From time to time the ideas of moving Mays to OLB has come up. In Matt Barrows live chat this afternoon, he said that with Mays being 6'3" and 230 lbs. he may not be built to chase around quicker NFL receivers. I happen to agree. My suggestion would be to move Mays to OLB, have him cover TEs and the edge and blitz occasionally. With his great, straight line speed, he is perfectly suited to that. He may even be a new kind of weapon the Niners could use to pressure the QB.
Now...he would undoubtedly have to gain about 10 lbs. to do that because he will have to fight off blocks more but I think he could do that too. To me, this seems like a much better scenario by which he could succeed in the NFL. As a safety (even a SS), he will probably always be a liability in coverage.
What do you Zoners think?
