GM: DaCards

Strengths: Mays is a rare physical specimen. He was blessed with a great combination of size and speed. He has good coverage awareness and has the athleticism to assist cornerbacks over the top. He has the frame and all the tools necessary to succeed in the NFL.

Weaknesses: If Mays can improve the fundamentals and technique of his game, he can develop into one of the best safeties in the league. He needs to work on tackling, rather then over-extending and sometimes missing the tackle. He also needs to improve the footwork in his drop.

Why they will draft him: I wanted a running back but that could be addressed in round 2. Their secondary is in shambles and corner and safety is their biggest needs. Mays is an athlete and can make the plays[at safety]. He reminds me a lot of Adrian Wilson and I can see him being used the same. He isn't that much of a reach at 20. His downfall is that he is easy to fool with pump fakes and tends to break on plays a little pre-maturely. His up side is unlimited and he has the speed and the size, and can also lay the hit. With an NFL DB coach he can become an elite safety.

Big thanks to DaCards for making this pick. That puts LAcardsfan on the clock with the Bengals pick and Hadrarius on deck with New England's pick. Please send me your picks to revengeofthebirds@gmail.com today. The remaining picks are after the jump...
