He's faster than DHB, even.

Somewhere D-Unit is getting fitted (unfortunately for him it's a Seahawk jersey)

Nope, Raiders going QB with Russell as NFL roadkill .... again :mad:

Mays goes to Seattle & his former college coach. But after a 4.24 Carroll may have to trade up for him.

I would think he'd be there at #6 but that is probably too early. Cant get totally caught up in a 40 time (are you listening Al Davis?)

What I am wondering is.Do you all think the Thomas Davis thing will get some team to reach for Mays?

What's funny is, even D-Unit said a few times taht he didn't believe the 4.2 hype.

******* nice.

Do we need a thread linking the Raiders to every player that blows up the Combine?

as of right now one too few in Al's mind.

A 40 time could certainly go a long way to changing the mind of the only guy that matters, Al; with that said, every indication this offseason has pointed towards the offensive or defensive line, and even though the Raiders do base the majority of their player evaluations from player workouts, they almost always draft a need in the first round. If anything we may need to trade away a safety, likely Huff, before we consider pursuing Mays.

Wow, that simulcast showed that 4.24 was way ******* off...

This thread is no longer relevant. He's simply no longer fast enough for Al; three of our safeties (Branch, Huff, Mitchell) ran faster times.

****** up timing issues.

For some reason I have a feeling Al Davis is gonna draft Tim Tebow.

But thank god we drafted Mike Mitchelle last year.Al loves to reach for players but every time he does its for a position of need.

Yeah the Raiders are pretty stocked up at safety. I'd say Campbell is an equal/greater freak at a much bigger position of need, and they probably have some familiarity with him after scoping out DHB last year at the same school. I'd say he has a much better shot going #8.

I'm not so sure they were really paying attention when they scoped out Maryland.

In my opinion that "official" time of 4.43 was way off.

I timed him three times and it was sub-4.3 on all of them.

They're probably trying to protect Mays from Al.

They showed on NFL Network Mays was faster than T.Holiday so Mays was def faster than 4.43

Quote me.

Never ever said such a thing. I may have said that I don't know what he'll run, but I never said that I don't believe he'll run it.

Don't get confused. Reading comprehension is your friend.

Thought I remember you saying people only overrate him if they think he runs a 4.2 and should go top 5, or something to that effect.

Can't quote it, there are a million Taylor Mays Threads.

Either way, he didn't run a 4.2, so it doesn't even matter.

There's been some major discrepancies among the 40-times this year, but the real official times aren't going to be out for 2 weeks, so those will be pretty interesting.

Either way, I still don't think Mays is going to be a Raider. I don't think it's impossible, but the Raiders seemed to be pretty happy with the Branch and Huff/Eugene combo. I personally think Oakland could do a lot better at FS and would be perfectly happy with drafting Mays, but it seems like the team is looking at greater needs on defense.

My god. A linebacker at 4.24? That's insane.

I love Mays, always loved him and always will love him.

Still, is that for real? NFL.com says he ran a 4.43.

You of all people should know that a human hand on a stopwatch is just about the most inaccurate thing ever. If you think of Taylor Mays as a burner, your subconscious has you punching that button a bit too late at the start or a bit too late at the end. See: Pete Carroll's laughable time.

I'm kind of ashamed to read your website when you say things like this. That's just very disappointing.

Not at all, if you focus on the legs of the person that's running. As soon as they move, you start, and as soon as he crosses the line, you stop.

Not that hard.

In Scott's defense, when NFL Network overlayed the 40 runs for Ford (4.28), Holliday (4.34) and Mays (4.43), Mays didn't finish 3rd. He finished in between the two.

The "official" time being posted isn't the actual official time anyway; those don't come out until two weeks from now. Considering that this year had the biggest discrepancies between the "official" and unofficial times that I've ever seen, I'm inclined to believe that there was some weirdness going on with starting the official time stopwatches.

the whole "official" time is extremely suspect, all that matters is that the decision makers saw a show when Mays ran that 40.


we all know al davis his loves him a good 40. the other decision makers know about the adjustment but I can't believe they will put that "adjustment" over something they just saw and/or timed themselves.

I can show you video of Kobe Bryant jumping over a car doing like 60 mph. :rolleyes:

That video could be pretty inaccurate.

upon re-examination of the footage, the guys he's wedged between are Ford and Best, since it's a red shirt #3, not a ST (=black shirt) #2 that holliday wore.

Monomach, aren't you the same guy who believes Darrell Green never ran a sub 4.3??

No surprise you have doubts about Mays' 40 speed. I haven't read or seen a report from anyone who was at the combine who didn't time Mays running a low 4.3 or high 4.2. Form your own opinion.

For the record, it's not impossible to time someone accurately on their body movement, especially when they start out from a 'freeze' position.

The combine IMO also gave a conservative official time for CJ Spiller, I think he ran well under 4.3, possibly a legit 4.25.

I wonder if the NFL has a vested interest in maintaining that Chris Johnson is the fastest guy in the league. If they do that would explain a lot.
