The Rams were a surprise team last season as they finished just one game short of a postseason berth. They think they are ready for a playoff run this season, but their roster could still use upgrading.
Specifically, the Rams could use a safety. Their best safety, O.J. Atogwe, left the team prior to the lockout. As it stands now, the Rams will be choosing a starting safety from a group of guys that includes Dionte Dinkins, Tim Atchison and Craig Dahl.
St. Louis has a solid stable of cornerbacks led by Al Harris and Bradley Fletcher, but they need the safeties to match to take pressure off those corners.
Mays would come in and start right away. His speed would give comfort to Harris and Fletcher that they will have help in defending the passing game, and Mays' hard-hitting ways will help the linebackers defend the run.
The Rams' roster feels a little bit incomplete if they are looking to make a playoff run. I'm not saying the addition of Mays makes them Super Bowl contenders, but it would certainly go a long way toward solidifying their position as contenders for the NFC West title.
