Post-Draft Outlook:
COULD SURPRISE: Safety Taylor Mays -- In watching film of him at USC, the 49ers noticed he typically played 20 yards off the line of scrimmage. The 49ers plan to play him in the box in run support.

A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 2/49 -- Taylor Mays, S, 6-3, 230, USC: He's a physically gifted player who toppled out of the first round because teams did not see him make many plays on film. In four seasons as a college starter, Mays recorded just five interceptions, with four of those coming in his first two years. - by The Sports Xchange

 Draft Scout Taylor Mays News
06/22/15 - S Taylor Mays, released by the Minnesota Vikings June 16, was signed by the Lions Monday (June 22). The 27-year-old Mays, a former second-round draft pick out of USC, started just four games over four years with the Cincinnati Bengals since his rookie season. He was used primarily on special teams. Mays signed with the Vikings as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
06/16/15 - S Taylor Mats had his contract terminated by the Vikings Tuesday (June 16).
03/24/15 - S Taylor Mays left the Bengals for the Vikings Tuesday (March 24). Mays agreed to terms with the Vikings as a free agent after spending the past four seasons with the Bengals. Originally drafted by San Francisco in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, he has played 66 career games with 10 starts. A season ago, Mays played in all 16 games for Cincinnati, primarily on special teams.
03/08/15 - S Taylor Mays, unrestricted FA update, went from being a second-round bust with San Francisco to a serviceable backup as a hybrid safety/linebacker and good special teams player. He blocked a punt against Jacksonville that went for a safety and got his first career sack against Peyton Manning in a Monday Night Football win against Denver in late December. He has a good chance at returning to this role.
11/12/14 - S Taylor Mays (foot) did not practice Wednesday.
