Draft Scout Thomas Mayo News
07/24/13 - WR Thomas Mayo was waived/injured by the Jets.
04/23/12 - Thomas Mayo was 5 feet 6 and barely 120 pounds when he showed up at South Lakes High football practice as a freshman nine years ago, small enough to draw a chuckle out of his old high school coach when John Ellenberger dug out a dated roster recently and read the measurements. Today, Mayo is an NFL hopeful, one of the most unlikely prospects waiting to hear his name called at this week’s NFL draft. He stands 6-1, a chiseled 210 pounds. “Like an Under Armor display mannequin,” Ellenberger said. Mayo said the foundation was already inside the skin-and-bones teenager who eventually became a 4,000-plus yard wide receiver at the NCAA Division II level and a prospect some say could be taken in the draft’s late rounds. The physical aspects would come later, developed through a love affair with the weight room and with the help of man who became a surrogate father. His mental framework was fashioned watching his mother endure three spinal surgeries that threatened her ability to walk and by a desire to repay those who took care of him. “I really, truly believe that everything happens for a reason,” Mayo said. “Maybe I needed all them bad times to make good times. I’m just happy and grateful and blessed.” - Paul Tenorio, The Washington Post
03/14/12 - The California University football program welcomed representatives from 22 NFL teams and one CFL team to Adamson Stadium Tuesday morning, as nearly two dozen players from Pennsylvania schools participated in Pro Day. The Vulcans had 11 seniors participate at their annual Pro Day: defensive backs Shawn Anderson, Erik Harris, James Nixon and Patrick Swearinger; defensive linemen Marcus Cook, Kevin Crawford, Thomas Mulabah and Steve Santia; offensive lineman Rishaw Johnson; and wide receivers Chedrick Cherry and Thomas Mayo. Cal U also welcomed nine additional players from across the PSAC and a pair of FCS players to Adamson Stadium: defensive backs Herschel Thornton (East Stroudsburg) and Gary Tillman (Millersville); defensive linemen Randy Colling (Gannon) and Keir Jeter (Edinboro); linebacker Ian Wild (Mercyhurst); offensive linemen Daryl Kurtz (Bloomsburg) and Rob Stoner (Edinboro); quarterback Chris Lum (Lehigh); tight end Kevin Doty (Lafayette); and wide receivers David Bostic (Edinboro) and Trevor Kennedy (Mercyhurst). The players were tested in a variety of drills conducted at the NFL Combine, such as the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and three-cone drill, and also participated in position work. The following teams attended Pro Day at Adamson Stadium: Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans and the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL. - Monessen Valley Independent
01/21/12 - EAST-WEST SHRINE TUESDAY: Wideout Thomas Mayo from California (Pa.) has had a few drops in practices, but showed off his impressive ball skills with a few one-handed grabs. He also showed his physical, feisty attitude, getting in more than a few skirmishes with cornerbacks in 7-on-7 drills. Mayo is rough around the edges, but his natural acceleration and toughness is evident. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/12 - EAST-WEST SHRINE MONDAY: Division II wide receiver Thomas Mayo out of California (PA) is an impressive athlete for his size (6-1, 207 pounds), showing quick acceleration off the line of scrimmage and getting downfield in a hurry. His footwork in and out of his breaks looks a bit raw, but there is a lot to like about Mayo's skill set and he could emerge as the best wideout in attendance. An FCS-level receiver with a good first day was Tennessee Tech's Tim Benford, who turned out to be a pleasant surprise. He showed his fearlessness in tight coverage with very good quickness and caught everything that came his way. Both of these small-school receivers are worth monitoring moving forward. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
