49ers Agree to Terms With 2nd Round S Taylor Mays

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with second-round safety Taylor Mays.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

A four-year starter, the 6-3, 230-pound safety totaled 276 tackles and 5 interceptions during a highly-decorated career at the University of Southern California. A three-time All-Pac-10 and All-American selection, Mays picked up first-team honors after the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

Mays had an impressive workout at the 2010 Scouting Combine, running a 4.31-40 with a 41” vertical leap and 10’05” broad jump. Mays also did 24 reps on the bench press, but it was not enough to overcome his college gamefilm and questions about his ability to play the pass at the next level.

Mays slid out of the first round and to the 49ers in the middle portion (49th overall) of the second. Mays is expected to back-up Michael Lewis at strong safety, and team with free safety Dashon Goldson to form a formidable safety tandem in the near future.

First-round guard Mike Iupati is the team's lone unsigned pick.
