Thomas Mayo is another guy who put up big numbers at a small school. He certainly has the size to be effective at 6’1″ 200 lbs, and he used that to his advantage in his collegiate career. The main concern with Mayo is that he is not a great athlete. He is stiff in the hips coming out of breaks and struggles to adjust to the ball at times.

He does have the ability to make flashy catches at times, but his hands are a bit inconsistent. Mayo has average 4.5 speed which is fast enough to be effective in the NFL, but he doesn’t seem to have the burst or quickness to his game either.

He has had some drop problems in OTA’s to this point but it’s still early. He still has a chance to rebound, but will need to improve quickly or he might not even make it to the cuts deadline.

    Mayo will excell when they put the pads on…..don’t be surprised when he ends up being the Victor Cruz of this years draft class.

  • @Ryan_Riddle Nothing wrong with either opinion. Honestly I could build around both guy, I'd just do so differently.

  • @Ryan_Riddle Very different qualities required for both. It's why I am not a huge fan of the coordinator->HC promotion ladder.

  • @Ryan_Riddle He'll need to run good routes to be better than Beckham if my thinking...even if he's dangerous.

  • @Ryan_Riddle That' putting too much faith in Evans refining his route-running for me. Beckham's floor is very high.

  • @Ryan_Riddle Rather have Beckham to build around.
