    That didn't take long.

    Heard on radio it was for a 5th.....Bungels took that one bent over.
    About all he is good for is in blitz packages or he needs to put on 25 pounds and play WLB.

    Suprised big Al Davis didn't trade for him....He loves fast guys that can't play.

    Can you imagine the backlash if Devany picked Mays 49th overall and then traded him for a 5th just a year later?

    Well this just shows how desperate the Bengals are for Safety help. They also traded for Reggie Nelson last year.

    That team is a mess with a decent amount of young talent (AJ Green, Jordan Shipley, Jermaine Gresham, Andy Dalton, Keith Rivers, Leon Hall) that I really feel bad for.

    Man that is so sad to see the Whiners whif on an early pick like that. And yes, the dungeon dwellers over at the PD would have been lighting their torches and sharpening their pitchforks if BD was making these moves.

    No doubt. Plus, Mays made TWO NFC West teams look bad when he left the 49ers. The 49ers, of course, because he couldn't play well for them and they drafted him. But ALSO the Seahawks, because Mays blames his lack of preparation for the draft on Pete Carroll. Spagnuolo should have picked him up just to exploit the MASSIVE grudge he'd have for 4 games a year.
