Fifth Round (160): Ravens Select Defensive Tackle Daylon Mack of Texas A&M

Draft-5-160

The Ravens believe in defensive line depth, and they addressed that by drafting Texas A&M defensive tackle Daylon Mack in the fifth round.

Mack lost weight and blossomed in his senior season and became one of the better run-stuffers in college football. Powerfully built at 6-feet, 320 pounds, Mack is nicknamed “The Mack Truck” and is hard to move off the line of scrimmage. In Baltimore, he should benefit from being mentored by Ravens defensive tackles Brandon Williams and Michael Pierce.

Mack improved as a pass rusher last season with 5 ½ sacks, after getting just 2 ½ sacks during his first three seasons at A&M. Over his college career, Mack had 127 tackles including 27 for loss.
