2012 NFL Draft: Chiefs Speak With Small School WR Thomas Mayo At Shrine Game

Thomas Mayo is one of the better small school prospects eligible for the draft and he turned some heads with his play and practices at last week’s East-West Shrine Game. Apparently he also got some specific teams to notice him including the Kansas City Chiefs. Josh Buchanan has word that the Chiefs were talking to Mayo during the week, putting another late-round prospect on the radar for the Chiefs’ draft fans.

Wes Bunting says Mayo will have a tough time making himself known at the next level. He writes, "Possesses a solid looking frame, good size and natural length. Has the ability to extend and catch the football off his frame. However, is just a very “blah” athlete. Looks tighter in the hips when trying to get out of his breaks, even on vertical routes and there is really no legit burst to his game. Is going to have a really tough time separating from NFL corners at the next level and isn’t dynamic enough of a option to be able to win when corners are draped all over him."

Other teams interested in Mayo include the Bears, Cowboys, Texans and Packers.
