Use Taylor Mays as a weakside Cover 3 FS like the Colts did with Sanders or as the traditional SS like Lynch or Mike Brown, and I think that's the exact player you'd get.
USC's scheme and coaching staff did Mays zero favors as a prospect. He didn't get proper development, and his draft stock fell accordingly. With NFL coaching and a team using him properly, he'll turn out to be a good one.
