Just a thought. He could easily add about 10-15 lbs.

He might make some plays. Maybe he could even cover TE's.

How about we draft a real LB? Weatherspoon is twice the LB

What usually happens to big fast safeties that are really lousy in coverage??

OLB in a 4-3

Just saying, he is so big, he may even convert to a will in a 3-4.

One thing is for sure without any doubt. If we had Mays playing last year, he would have done a better job than Ayodele.

How exactly would adding weight improve his hips or his instincts?

I actually agree with Elliot....I was wondering why no one is talkin about converting him to and ILB. Brian Urlacher converted from safety and that turned out pretty good for the bears. Mays has the size and def the speed to cover Backs or TE's....

He would be great in a Cover 2 scheme at WOLB, playin the Tampa 2

there is no WILL in the 3-4... you have 2 weakside backers, the WILB and the WOLB in which Mays would be too small for either... especially the OLB in a 3-4 who are basically the size of a 4-3 DE...

I don't like picking Mays at all. The numbers he put up at the combine increased his stock too much to be able to draft him at the position he should be drafted at. You have to prove your skills on the football field...not the practice field.

NO!!!! You dont draft people with high 1st round picks and turn them into a project.

I would put a 3rd or 4th RD grade as a 4-3 WOLB. As a FS or SS, I'd put a 4th or 5th RD grade on him. That's not where he'd go, but that's where I'd be willing to draft him. Obviously we don't run a 4-3, so he wouldn't work as a LB in our system - unless he could be a coverage LB in the 2-4 under Nolan. But, again, that's not worth a high draft pick. There will be egos scrambling to draft him in the 1st.

Might want to teach him how to tackle before we do that.

I would not see this as too far from the truth. It wouldn't be the first time it's happened. I don't think he's going to be too good at FS
