This is exactly it. Mays is a great situational run stuffing linebacker, however he is not fast enough in a 4-3 to play in space on passing plays nor to get to the edge to stop stretch runs or tosses.
Irving did have that great backside pursuant tackle, but I'm not sure he is the answer either. We have a borderline great defense and I think a stud MLB could be the last piece of that puzzle.
