Slowly but steadily, we will make it to the Baltimore Ravens 2020 season kickoff. With only 94 days until then, we’ve reached sophomore defensive tackle Daylon Mack.
How Mack Became a Raven
Mack is a fresh face in the Ravens’ organization, only joining the team last year; he was drafted by the Ravens in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft (No. 160 overall). He joins a long list of Aggies in the NFL — far too many to count.
Career as a Raven
Unfortunately, Mack has not seen the field much. In his rookie season, he only participated in a single game.
Mack is in his second year of a four-year rookie deal. He’s currently slated to earn $675,000 with a bonus of $74,820.
Outlook for 2020
With the Ravens beefing up the defensive line both in the free agency and the NFL draft, it’s hard to disagree with the notion of Mack’s chances of making the final roster as a bit worrisome. Baltimore isn’t a team known to cut ties quickly with a draft pick; that being said, they just drafted two defensive tackles in the 2020 NFL draft (Justin Madubuike, Broderick Washington), they re-signed two players from the 2019 roster (Justin Ellis, Jihad Ward), traded for another defensive tackle (Calais Campbell) and also landed another in free agency (Derek Wolfe). This spells trouble for Mack but hopefully a full offseason allowed him to progress and develop into an NFL-caliber player along the defensive line.
