Taylor Mays - Lightning

Postby frankcal20 » Tue Mar 02, 2010 12:06 pm

Taylor Mays just ran a 4.24 40yd dash

For reference purposes - Chris Johnson - RB Tenn ran the same time which is one of the fastest of all time.

Too bad his game speed is a lot slower than that. He doesn't have many int's and found himself out of position a bit but someone's going to get him who thinks they can coach him up. Al Davis anyone?

With stats like that, he'd fit right in in DC.

Don't really understand how he runs an "unofficial" 4.24 and then they come back and say he ran an "official" 4.43... That is WAY off. Why don't they just give you the official time the first time?

there are a lot of "official times" - take your choice - they are all "official" - just love this time of year :lol:

actually, I think I heard there are actually 4 "official" times - some pick the best and some take the "average" - it's really not that big a deal, it's just a milion or 2 per year, maybe more ... :lol:

Taylor Mays is a good athlete that is true. Impressive Forty time as well.

I still think he is pure potential at this point. So far he has not shown much in terms of production. I would still take Eric Berry over him any day.
Also there are a number of good safeties coming out this year. So there is no need to reach with Mays.
Sean Taylor starting free safety Heavens team!

21 Forever

enough! we can search, scour, reach all we want for safeties in every draft. WE WILL NEVER FIND ANOTHER MEAST.

OK then let's pick him at #4 for a FS, let's ignore the glaring hole at Oline. Heck why not run the swinging gate play everydown, this way we get to see more of our "good" Defense. We are good on the DB's, they can hold up for another year. WE NEED A LINE to protect lionel ritchie.

Dude, you must be tired from all that JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS you're doing.

The point you overreacted to first was that we can get safeties thruout the draft. Now you're overreacting trying to imply that I said draft him at number 4. Slow down man and think a little.

We DO, in fact, need a FS. I don't think Moore's gonna do it from what I've seen. I think we've all seen enough of Landry at FS, and I still love the guy. Smoot at FS? I don't think so with the unproven young guys we have. I'm still not content with Westbrook back there. And Barnes hasn't shown much to solidify a nickel/starting position quite yet.
