Bio: 
Junior college transfer who rushed for a career-high 208 yards in the 2016 season opener before injuring his leg the following week and returning as a backup for the final four games of the season. Led the Aggies with 966 rushing yards on 165 carries and scored nine touchdowns as a junior, starting six games.
Pos: 
Strong ball carrier coming off injury. Displays vision and run instincts, weaves through traffic and works to pick up positive yardage. Runs with good lean, has a burst and does not go down without a fight. Gets a lot of momentum going up the field and falls forward when tackled. Displays solid short-area quickness with the ability to make defenders miss.
Neg: 
Really not a creative ball carrier who strings several moves together over the course of a run. Lacks perimeter speed and agility. Misses blocking assignments on occasion.
Analysis: 
Mays was graded as a priority free agent entering the season, a year which was cut short by injury. He’s a bigger back that can be used in a rotation if healthy.
