Played receiver and some running back in high school, as well as returned kicks. Did all exceptionally well. Strong receiver who can get past a defense with ease. Quick moves after the catch allow him to evade immediate tacklers. Impressed in every camp he attended.
Mack should play in 2016. He has already enrolled, so he'll get a crack to make an impression in spring. That should enable him to intrigue enough coaches to ensure that he'll see action this coming season.
