  • Taylor Mays to Senior Bowl

    The Senior Bowl just announced that Taylor Mays has accepted his invitation.

    Say what you want about those USC players but they aren't afraid to compete!

    Can't wait to see Mays in action.

    It's the culture at SC you just keep competing. Mays would probably be one of those guys that cant gain a lot by going to the Senior Bowl (he certainly would at the combine)but he's going. Shows me a lot.

      I'm excited to see him go. This will be my first year with NFL Network, so I'll be able to watch the game. As a fan, I want to see the best players play and compete. As long as he doesn't mind getting spun out of his shoes by Hardesty.
      Still Team The Ke$ha!!!

        He might look like an All-Pro in pads, but he plays like The Invisible Woman. Terrible instincts. Never around the ball (unless you count diving on the pile after letting up a huge gain). Mays is simply not a playmaker.

        The great safeties like Polamalu, Reed, and Byrd all had a knack for being in the right place at the right time. I've never seen that from Mays. He's just another physical specimen with marginal football skills, which means Al Davis will probably pick him in the top 10 and put him on the mantle alongside Darrius Has-No-Game, JaBustus Russell, and Runt DMC.

            I think he means it's his first year with the NFL Network on his television package. :)

                I know we tend to exaggerate a bit in here but i think 268 career tackles would indicate he is around the ball occasionally.

                    Yea, he's around the ball all the time when he takes a bad angle, bites on a fake, gets beaten for a 30 yard gain, then runs someone down on the 10 yard line.

                    Seriously, I've watched great safeties in college. Roy Williams. Ed Reed.Troy Polamalu. Jarrad Page. OJ Atogwe. Jairus Byrd (I know he played CB, but he qualifies). These guys were always around the ball making game-changing plays.

                    I can't remember a single great play Taylor Mays has made. He's big. He's fast. Who cares? He can't play a lick. He's not a difference maker in the Pac-10. He certainly won't be one in the NFL against bigger, faster, and better competition.

                    I'm much more intrigued by Rahim Moore. He might not be the specimen that Mays is, but at least he's a real football player.

                      Is this like James Laurinaitis being a "pile jumper"?

                        Lol... :o

                        Anyways, I think Taylor Mays will drop his stock at the Senior Bowl and that his flaws will really be exposed, I'm picturing what happened to Clint Sintim last year, heading in with a first round stock and leaving falling because he didn't do very well during the week.

                          I think the reason Sintim struggled is because he was put in a 4-3 defense after playing in a 3-4 his entire college career. He was asked to do new things and didn't adjust well / quickly enough.

                            No, it's like JaMarcus Russell (your #5 ranked player in 2007) being a horrific bust because he had no football instincts to complement his impressive physical talent.
