The look on Tom Brady's face: Pricless

Enjoy.As a junior at USC, Mays was tipped as a top five selection and even entering the 2009 campaign, he was still being lauded as a top 10 pick at worst. However, once evaluators are able to study him play by play, I think his stock will drop considerably. The questions everyone asks is what position is he going to play? Can he play free safety and operate as a traditional ball hawking centerfielder? Will he play closer to the line of scrimmage and support the run from the strong side? Or does he have the game to play outside linebacker in a 4-3? I hope to answer all of these questions. I just want to preface the following by saying that a number of people have talked about how Taylor’s role changed as a senior and he didn’t make as many plays because of it. Well that’s partly true in that he didn’t make many plays, but the reality is that he asked head coach Pete Carroll if he could in essence play as slightly less of a pure centre fielder and, in his words, ‘put him closer to the action’. However, whilst he ended up with more tackles – 88, beating his previous best by 22 – he failed to record a sack, a tackle for a loss, a forced fumble or a pass break up.
