The defensive backs will continue to work out today, with Taylor Mays looking strong in both his 40 time and his individual drills. Earl Thomas was apparently having a bad day, which could just be a fluke, but he didn’t look like the #1 safety prospect as Mike Mayock has been touting him at.
A surprising number of backs have dropped the ball, including Thomas (literally) on the reaction-time drill they’re currently running, which is odd. Even more surprisingly, Taylor Mays has all but led the pack so far. He’s looked very impressive so far, showing excellent balance, solid footwork and quick ball skills. As we’ve already mentioned, he also might be quick. Just a bit.
So far though, this group of DBs is making me think the Seahawks should shy away from drafting any of them very high. Playmakers on offense are looking more and more desirable as each day goes on. And don’t forget, free agency starts Friday, and it’ll certainly be an interesting year to watch that unfold.
