I'm going to slot Mays here not because I think it's the right pick for the Bengals, or because I think Mays will develop into an All-Pro safety. I'm putting Mays here because I think he'll be a bust, and if there is one team that always knows how to sniff out a bust, it's the Bengals. (Browns fans might have a case, though.) Sometimes it's not even their fault, because talented players who seem like they're about to become Pro Bowlers have a knack for getting hurt. It's almost as if they're cursed. Let's take a quick look at the Bengals last 10 first-round draft picks, shall we? In order, they are: Akili Smith, Peter Warrick, Justin Smith, Levi Jones, Carson Palmer, Chris Perry, David Pollack, Jonathan Joseph, Leon Hall, Keith Rivers, Andre Smith. Of that group, Palmer is the only player to play for the Bengals in a Pro Bowl. (Justin Smith was an alternate in 2009 for the 49ers.) Pollack and Jones might have been great, but serious injuries hurt their chances. Perry, Akili Smith and Warrick were disasters. Joseph, Hall and Rivers have been solid starters, but not elite players. At least not yet. Andre Smith looks like a bust. So let's go ahead and pencil Taylor Mays in here and welcome him to this legacy of failure. The Bengals need help in the secondary, and the fact that he ran one of the fastest 40 times at the combine will be too much to pass up on. He has the physical size and skills to be on of the best safeties in the NFL, but he doesn't really like to hit people and he's not that great in coverage. Sounds like a great combination for Cincy.
