According to Tony Pauline of Draftanalyst.com, Florida safety Marcus Maye met with Pittsburgh Steelers’ GM Kevin Colbert prior to the Gators’ Pro Day workout today.
Per Pauline’s top notch info, Maye had a great workout and is drawing a lot of interest from the league.
“Safety Marcus Maye was the day’s big winner. He tipped the scales at 207 pounds, three less than his combine weight. His forty times were clocked between 4.47s to 4.52s, his three cone between 7.05s to 7.10s and short shuttle 4.12s to 4.18s.
During drills Maye looked as good as the Gators highly rated corners, displaying a quick, fluid pedal and smooth hip turn. One interesting note- a year ago Maye received the same grade from the advisory committee as Keanu Neal, who was a first round pick in 2016.”
Maye has a reputation as a big hitter again, similar to Neal a year ago, who the Atlanta Falcons took 17th overall last season. He’s one of the few guys to stop Leonard Fournette in his tracks.
In nine games last season, Maye recorded 50 tackles and picked off one pass. His best season came in 2015 where he played in every game, finishing with 77 tackles, four forced fumbles, and two interceptions. NFL Draft Scout has him listed as a third round pick though many believe he’ll go higher than that, just as Neal and Karl Joseph did last year.
I have not seen a defensive back hit Fournette like this, ever. Marcus Maye is the dude: pic.twitter.com/L6dVp0Bs9R
