What the scouts are saying:
"Plays fast in pursuit with very good closing burst. Smooth lateral movements with good range, surging with his hips. Uses his length well to engage, swim and swat and uses a wide array of moves to keep blockers guessing." (Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com)
"He is adept at shedding blocks with the speed and athleticism to be an edge rusher in the NFL. Mack could fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker. The explosive play-maker should develop into a double-digit sacker quickly after being drafted." (Walter Football)
"A havoc-wreaking rush linebacker with the burst and acceleration to excel as a right defensive end in a "40" front, Mack has demonstrated the instincts, toughness, athletic ability and explosive power to line up at any linebacker position in an even or odd front and factor readily" (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
