Mack has been a largely underwhelming player for extended portions of his time at Texas A&M despite lofty expectations coming out of high school. However, he responded well to an off-season coaching staff change and a new defensive coordinator, and his play has helped to resuscitate his draft stock. While he has to prove he can build on his senior season, his mass and anchor could appeal to 3-4 or 4-3 teams looking to shore up the middle of their defense with a plugger in the later rounds. — Lance Zierlein

For the 11th consecutive year, the Ravens go out and draft a defensive lineman. I’m fine with it, seeing as interior pressure and gap integrity is critical to winning games in the AFC North. It sounds like Mack struggled at A&M but could become a great player with defensive line coach Joe Cullen. I like the pick.
