Marcus Maye NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’0 210lbs
- Field vision
- Solid in coverage (both man and zone)
- Decent speed
- Wrap-up tackler
Analysis: Marcus Maye didn’t jump out on tape, but he was a consistent member of a very solid Florida Gators defense. He is really instinctive with above-average field vision and feel for the game. Eyes dart back and forth from quarterback to receiver. Correlates quarterback’s eyes and actions to a corresponding route and gets the early jump. Plays with good pattern recognition from both man and zone. Credited with a pass breakup or interception on more than 21 percent of his targets as a starter. Has speed to burst from sideline to sideline. Rangy tackler with in-play endurance for extended chases across field. Welcomes physical aspects of position. Sheds blockers quickly. Showed improved patience and diligence as tackler. Trustworthy as last line of defense.
- Ball skills
- Hip tightness
- Struggles going backwards–better downhill
Analysis: Despite his instincts, Marcus Maye was credited with 10 touchdowns allowed during time at Florida. Inconsistent ball tracker. Has issues playing both ball and man down the field, and can lose feel with receiver. Tape shows some issues with hip tightness. Balance can be a little spotty and he’ll fight his hips when forced to transition suddenly on combination routes. Better coming downhill than playing on his heels.
