We mentioned Monday that the Eagles might consider drafting USC safety Taylor Mays if he slips to No. 24 in April. Daily News beat man Les Bowen is on the ground in Mobile, Ala., and he filed a report on the Eagles' potential interest in Mays.
Our experts from Scouts Inc. said that Mays looked a little "stiff" in covering wide receivers one-on-one today, but what do you expect from a guy who's 6-3, 230 pounds. In talking to people from the Eagles organization, there's some thought that Quintin Mikell would be better off lining up with a veteran safety. The Cowboys brought in Gerald Sensabaugh and he made an immediate impact.
The Eagles ended up missing Brian Dawkins more than they thought. I'm not sure if drafting a rookie starter is the answer to their problems. I honestly think the Eagles should draft a cornerback in the first round. I'll be telling you why in the coming days.
