Here’s what former USC safety Taylor Mays told radio host Darren Smith about what he hears from draft analysts vs. NFL teams.
“I just know that what I hear from a consensus especially recently from analysts is different than what I am hearing from NFL head coaches and GM’s and DB coaches.
There is a difference. I only worry about what my instructors and coaches tell me.There are these ideas and thoughts out there that I can’t move well for my size or that I can’t backpedal.
“It’s just completely different than what I hear when I meet with coaches.They tell me that they like how I move and that I move well. Those are the people I’m going to listen to you.”
