See...even though everything screams no, I agree.

But then, after I got over the jubilation of him being picked by the Steelers I'd probably be worried about the pick until midway in the season.

I don't like the comparisons to Scott Shields, but I remember Scott Shields vividly.

I'd hate for a team in need of secondary help to pick the wrong guy for their secondary.

Earl Thomas is the safer pick.

Mays would be the hit or miss pick.

I think it's funny how so many people keep talking about Mays 4.24 40. I was watching the combine when he ran and it was obvious to everyone that something was messed up with the clocking on that. It didn't look like he ran nearly as fast as the clock.

Mays is one guy, along with Cody, that I DON'T want as a Steeler. I hope that another team takes him before the Steelers draft.

If Earl Thomas were 2 inches taller I'd really want him instead of Mays, but I worry about having two safeties around 5'10" in a league full of tall TEs and WRs. Bolden is on his way to the Ratbirds...

Pass on Mays.I watched USC several times this season. He doesn't have the skills to cover in the NFL. He is a great athlete who made it work at the college level. He may be a good linebacker project but not for us.

I got an idea!!!! What if we draft Taylor Mays in the 1st if McClain isn't there and if Spoon isn't there as well and mold him into an OLB or even an ILB.....Of course he will be a work in progress for a couple of years(he would have to put on some more weight) and when Farrior is ready to call it quits than Mays would be ready to step up with Timmons!!! So what do you guys think of this??? and remember its just an idea so don't take it so damn literal!!!!!

I would entertain this idea. Mays would definitely be an ILB in our 3-4 system and not an OLB. Just think of the speed we would have flying to the ball with him and Timmons. I like the idea, but highly unlikely, and another hit or miss situation if we tried that, but man that would be sweet on Madden with them two running the middle of the field.

LOL...it would be pretty sweet on MADDEN!!!! but you're right it would be highly unlikely but it would be an interesting project.....Timmons and Mays would be all over the field....
