Notre Dame senior TE Alize Mack accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Mack (6'5/247) has dealt with injuries and off-field issues during his collegiate career -- he sat out the 2016 season due to academics -- but finally managed to put together a mostly complete season in 2018. The senior tight end wrapped the regular season having caught 34 passes for 349 yards and three touchdowns. While Mack has plenty of athletic upside, The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard refers to him as a "[r]aw player who clearly needs work on attention to detail" and additionally notes that he has shown issues with physicality at times, writing that he "doesn’t finish plays strong, especially with the ball in his hands." Ledyard colleague Brad Kelly views Mack as having the talent of a top-100 pick, but admits that his draft process will be crucial to his making that cut. Dec 5 - 1:38 PM

Notre Dame senior TE Alizé Mack came down with two touchdowns and had 29 yards receiving on three receptions in a 42-13 victory over Florida State on Saturday.

Mack (6'5/247) has tantalized with his talent since enrolling at Notre Dame, but he's never quite lived up to the hype. It's just one game, but this was a friendly reminder that the tight end is still exceptionally talented. Mack is listed as a senior, but could get another year of eligibility since he didn't play in his sophomore campaign. A big game against Syracuse on Saturday could help his draft stock immensely.

Notre Dame senior TE Alize Mack (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Northwestern.

Mack (6'5/247) had not previously missed a game this season. Earlier in the practice week, Irish HC Brian Kelly said that the senior tight end was feeling better, but he's apparently not made the enough progress to take the field on Saturday. Look for Cole Kmet and Nick Weishar to see additional work versus the Wildcats now that Mack's been ruled out.

Notre Dame senior TE Alize Mack is in the concussion protocol.

Fighting Irish HC Brian Kelly said on Tuesday that Mack has been feeling better of late, but that the team is taking it day-to-day. It's not immediately clear when he sustained the concussion. Consider him questionable for this weekend's game against Northwestern. We should have a better idea as to his availability later in the practice week.

Draft Network's Brad Kelly writes that Notre Dame senior TE Alize Mack "projects perfectly for the modern role of the tight end in the NFL."

"On top of his athleticism, he has the potential of a dominant redzone threat with his ball skills and strength above the rim," Kelly writes of the 6-foot-5, 247-pound senior. Adds the analyst, "Additionally, Mack can stretch the field up the seam or block in space out on the edge." We're finally starting to see the tight end blossom after several frustrating years marred by off-field concern and health issues. He's caught 20 passes for 170 yards and a score in five games this season, Already, he's past his output from a year ago, which was largely shut down by injury.
Oct 4 - 6:56 PM

Notre Dame senior TE Alize Mack brought in six passes for 61 yards in a 56-27 crushing of Wake Forest on Saturday.

Brandon Wimbush was not able to get Mack involved in the passing game over the first three weeks of the season. Ian Book did not have any issues. The former five-star recruit was one of the top targets, and he showed the ability to make plays with his 6-foot-5, 247-pound frame. Mack has the talent to be an NFL player, and as long as Book remains the starter, he should get a chance to show that talent more often than he did the first three weeks. Mack and Notre Dame get Stanford next Saturday.
Sep 22 - 3:35 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Notre Dame senior TE Alize Mack has seen his stock slide after the first two weeks.

Mack was considered by many analysts to be the top senior tight end in the country, as Pauline mentions, but he hasn't been productive on the field, as he's hauled in just three passes in wins against Michigan and Ball State. A five-star recruit, Mack has been troubled by injuries and also missed a year due to academic issues as well. "Some will point an accusing finger at the Notre Dame passing attack," Pauline writes, "but Mack needs to step up his game to have any chance of being selected in the draft’s initial 100 selections."
Sep 10 - 3:55 PM

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly says senior TE Alizé Mack has "cleaned up" his off the field issues.

This is tentatively optimistic news, but now Mack will have to prove it by working on his craft and keeping his nose clean. Mack (6'5/240) is absolutely an NFL-caliber talent, a big and smooth target in the passing game, but he's been suspended multiple times in South Bend, including for all of the 2016 season because of academics.
Mar 5 - 2:49 PM

Notre Dame junior TE Alizé Mack has been suspended and will not play in the Citrus Bowl.

The reason for the suspension is unknown, but coach Brian Kelly says it's not indefinite and isn't related to academics. Mack was suspended for all of 2016 for academic issues, and was not as big of factor in the offense as anticipated; catching 19 passes for 166 yards and one score. It's still a big loss for a team that's already without Kevin Stepherson, who was suspended for shoplifting earlier in the week.

Notre Dame junior TE Alizé Mack has cleared the concussion protocol and should be able to play Saturday against Miami (FL).

Mack (6'5/240) was unable to play in Notre Dame's victory over Wake Forest last week after suffering a concussion against NC State the week before. He and Durham Smythe give the Irish one of the better 1-2 tight end combinations in the FBS, and could be a big factor for Brandon Wimbush and the Notre Dame offense against the tough Hurricanes' defense.

Notre Dame junior TE Alizé Mack (concussion) will not play on Saturday against Wake Forest.

Mack (6'5/240) was placed in the concussion protocol after suffering the head injury in the victory over NC State last week. With the talented junior out, it should mean more targets for Durham Smythe out of the position, and more playing time for senior Nic Weishar.

Notre Dame junior TE Alize Mack has been placed in the concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in Saturday's win over NC State.

Mack (6'5/240) has no immediate timetable for his return, but one will hopefully clarify over the coming days. Irish Illustrated's Pete Sampson passes along that senior Nic Weishar could see an expanded role if Mack is forced to miss a game. Notre Dame plays host to Wake Forest next weekend.

Notre Dame junior TE Alize Mack (hamstring) is 100-percent healthy.

Mack is locked and loaded for the opener against Temple this weekend. We expect the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder to break out in 2017 as one of Brandon Wimbush's preferred aerial targets. Mack sat out the 2016 season due to academic issues.

Notre Dame junior TE Alize Mack (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday.

Mack has been limited by a hamstring issue over the past week-plus, but it would appear that he should be healthy for the Irish's season-opener against Temple on September 2. A hulking potential target for QB Brandon Wimbush, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Mack sat out the 2016 season due to academic travails.

Notre Dame junior TE Alize Mack is working through a minor hamstring pull.

Mack (6'5/240) pulled his hamstring in practice last week. He did not practice on Saturday, but kept limber by working on a stationary bike and running on the sideline. There is no current timetable for his return. The junior tight end missed the 2016 season due to academic concerns.
