Hartman and Martin: Marcus Maye played multiple roles at the University of Florida. Whether he was playing as a single high safety, or being an enforcer in the box, he’s a interchangeable piece to any secondary. He shows the ability to match up on tight ends in man coverage occasionally, too. His ability to create fumbles sticks out to me, whether he’s making a hard hit, or using the famous Charles Tillman peanut punch, the guy is hazard when it comes to ball security. He’s has some lapses in coverage that caused him to give up some touchdowns and he did break his arm this past season; however, his athletic ability is a bit too enticing at this point of the draft, along with his scheme versatility.
The Steelers need to bolster their secondary, and even though they drafted Sean Davis in the second round of 2016, they are preparing for life without Mike Mitchell, all while getting a player who can help them in specific sub packages they run so often. Steelers fans won’t be happy with the Texans Cheap Jerseys back-to-back secondary picks with pass rusher still a strong need, but it is just the way the draft played out.
Analysis: This choice is a little puzzling. I understand the importance of having versatility in the secondary, but there are some good pass rushers available with this selection. Tim Williams of Alabama is a fit, and you could probably work Tarrell Basham into that role for Pittsburgh. In the end, I just don’t rate Maye as a top-64 player.
The Rams don’t have a first-round draft selection this year, so their highest pick will come at No. 37 in the second round. In his latest two-round mock draft, SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has them taking a wide receiver, JuJu Smith-Schuster out of USC. Adam Stites, also of SB Nation, has the Rams Cheap Jerseys NFL Nike going with East Carolina WR Zay Jones over Smith-Schuster.
Todd McShay thinks the Rams will wait a little longer to get some help at wideout, with Western Kentucky receiver Taywan Taylor in the third round. On the offensive line, the return of Saffold is huge, but in order to help Goff grow, they need to further solidify the offensive line.
