8. Daylon Mack – Late Rounds
With a new number came a rejuvenated season for the one time 5-star prospect. Mack’s career at Texas A&M was tumultuous to say the least. He consistently underperformed and didn’t quite live up to the hype of being one of the top recruits in his class.
That all changed in his senior season, however. Whether it was Elko’s scheme or Fisher just getting through to a guy who needed a different voice, Mack responded with the final chance to wow NFL scouts with a fantastic year. He anchored the defensive line along side Justin Madubuike and made it near impossible for teams to run on the Ags.
Scouts have long wondered if Mack can play in the NFL at his size. He is only 6-foot and never seemed to use his low center of gravity to his advantage until this season. Mack was one of three A&M players invited to the Senior Bowl and may actually be making an impact to his draft stock already. Don’t be surprised if he goes higher than most are projecting currently.
