Rookie Safety Taylor Mays May Compete for a Starting Spot

Rookie S Taylor Mays, a second-round pick out of Southern Cal, has made an instant impact in spring practices and could well take a starting job in training camp. Mays is big and fast and has proved to be a gym rat in his little time with the Niners, constantly quizzing the coaches about alignments and schemes and responsibilities. “He’s a breath of fresh air in terms of his work ethic and his mindset,” 49ers coach Mike Singletary told Comcast Sports. “That’s all Taylor Mays. We’re not saying, ‘Hey, come over here with us.’ That’s on him. But that’s his personality. I knew that before we drafted him. I had a chance to talk to a number of different people about him, and they all talked about his work ethic. So it’s nice to see that it’s following through.”

    I sure he takes the position on September 12th. He gives us speed knowledge and a HUGE Imtimadator in the secondary
