I've heard Mayo on sirius NFL a couple of times and have been very impressed by the kind of kid he is.
I thought the same way until I read one article that pointed out our LB depth and near future. Say Harrison sticks around and teams with Woodley at OLB for the next few years. Timmons slides inside and replaces Foote this year or next. Then Foote and Farrior are both probably gone. Who's left? This upcoming year sounds amazing with Woodley/Farrior/Foote/Harrison with Timmons in the wings. Whats that lineup look like in two years? I now fully expect a LB (in or out) in the early rounds, maybe even 1st or 2nd.
