Texas A&M DL Daylon Mack was listed by The Draft Network's Joe Marino as one of the winners from practices at the East-West Shrine Game.
Mack was one of the most heavily recruited players in the 2015 class, but he never quite lived up to the hype; although he did have 5.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss in his senior year. He certainly reminded analysts of that five-star talent in practices this week, and consistently was named by analysts as a player who stood out. "A gigantic tackle, Mack has an impressive amount of mobility that blends nicely with his powerful frame," Marino writes. "I was really impressed with his hand usage and how heavy and violent his strikes are." Mack earned a trip to the Senior Bowl for his strong work this week, and he appears to be a sleeper for thte 2019 draft. Jan 18 - 4:45 PM

Texas A&M senior DL Daylon Mack accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Mack (6'1/320) showed improvement as a senior setting new career highs in solo tackles (17), tackles for loss (10.0), and sacks (5.5). A former five-star recruit out of high school and ESPN's No. 6 overall recruit in 2015, Mack has largely been a disappointment at Texas A&M, but it was nice to see some of that talent show up in 2018. We're sure NFL scouts will have tons of questions about his lack of production, but he will get a chance to answer some of them in the East-West Shrine Game.

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren lists Texas A&M senior Daylon Mack as a prospect who is running out of time to justify his hype coming out of high school.

Mack was a big deal and a big get for the Texas A&M defense in 2015, and while there have been flashes of brilliance, he's also struggled with weight issues and his production suffered in the process, as VanHaaren notes. He was a standout this spring for the Aggies, however, and it wouldn't be a big surprise if the 6-foot-1, 330-pound interior defender broke out in 2018. "Mack has told reporters that he is dedicated to his training and has matured as well," writes VanHaaren. "With Jimbo Fisher taking over after Kevin Sumlin was let go, a new staff gets a chance to spark the dominance so many say from Mack in high school."

ESPN's Alex Scarborough lists Texas A&M senior Daylon Mack as the player who stood out the most during the Aggies' spring practices.

Mack was a huge get for the Texas A&M defense in 2015 -- he was ESPN's sixth ranked player -- but as Scarborough notes, he hasn't stood out on the field. That could change this year. "This spring, the defensive tackle showed up in better condition," writes Scarborough, "and that was clear during the spring game, in which he had a sack on his first play of the game." This could be the breakout season for Mack that Texas A&M fans have been waiting for.

Texas A&M strength and conditioning coach Larry Jackson said that he has had to order new bars that can handle more weight to accommodate the needs of freshman DT Daylon Mack.

Well, that's impressive for a freshman. The 6-foot-2, 307-pounder was listed as the No. 6 player in the ESPN 300 ranking of high school recruits this winter. He's clearly up-to-the-task on the level of strength, though he's predictably unpolished in terms of the nuances of the game and will need to improve his pad level and pass rushing as his time with the Aggies rolls forward. His ESPN scouting report said that he is "built like a Mack truck." We're sure he's never heard that before.

High school defensive tackle Daylon Mack, the No. 6 player in the ESPN 300, signed with Texas A&M.

Mack and A&M, who have ostensibly just begun their relationship, already have the appearance of an on-again, off-again high school relationship. Mack committed to the school way back in October, 2013, and then decommitted from the Aggies on Dec. 19. He flirted with TCU and Texas, but ultimately remained loyal to Kevin Sumlin. Mack (6-foot-1, 330 pounds) is "built like a Mack truck," according to his scouting report. "Mack should physically be ready to make the jump and contribute early as a college DT although he needs to improve pad level and pass rush polish to become elite," it read.

High school defensive tackle Daylon Mack, the No. 6 ranked player in the ESPN 300, will announce between TCU, Texas and Texas A&M on Wednesday.

"Since decommitting from the Aggies on Dec. 19, the Horned Frogs have been trending, but a Jan. 23 visit to Austin placed the Longhorns in the thick of the race," noted ESPN.com's RecruitingNation. Mack (6-foot-1, 330 pounds) is "built like a Mack truck," according to his scouting report. "Mack should physically be ready to make the jump and contribute early as a college DT although he needs to improve pad level and pass rush polish to become elite," it read.

High school defensive tackle Daylon Mack, the No. 10 ranked player in the ESPN Junior 300, committed to Texas A&M on Monday.

"If you look at where we are right now in our recruiting efforts, I think you see where our emphasis is," coach Kevin Sumlin said after Auburn hung 45 points on Texas A&M this past weekend. The Aggies, the first program to offer Mack a scholarship, beat out LSU (which finished second), Baylor, Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech, amongst others, for Mack's services. "They just need a little help on defense," Mack said.
