  • How to Tell If Taylor Mays is Good or Not

    Seattle needs secondary help.

    Pete Carroll knows Taylor Mays, and his strengths and weaknesses, better than anybody.

    Watch Pete Carroll on draft day. If he passes up on Taylor Mays with the #14 pick and instead chooses a different safety or cornerback, you know Pete doesn't think Taylor has true first round talent.

          or you know that Seattle may want to pick a QB/T before a safety because the QB can make a much larger impact on a game and a LT can allow that QB to make that impact whereas a safety can be avoided more easily, unless you have god-like instincts like Ed Reed. A deep coverage safety wont help that much when the entire NFC West runs more of a WCO

              Bobby Petrino passed on Amobi Okoye after all. (but drafted the terrible Jamaal Anderson instead)

                      ...and if he drafts Mays, then Mays is gonna be an All-Pro?

                      Seriously... this is not a well thought out post.

                        Carroll has a connection to pretty much the whole world because he either coached them or coached against them. then there is all the highly recruited players he went after out of highschool. I guess we can just watch the Seattle draft and know who is good and who isnt.

                          This does kind of put other front offices in an awkward position. One of the ways GMs will get a good sense of a prospect is by interviewing his college coaches. But nobody can expect an honest answer about Mays from Carroll, except for John Schneider.

                          So the OP does have a certain point, the only way to tell how Carroll really feels about Mays is to watch what he does on draft day. I don't think that if he passes on him at 14 that he necessarily doesn't think Mays is a first round talent... since he could just be not the best player on the board at a position of need, at that point.

                            Or you could just watch the 50 games that Mays started at SC.
