Mack played a lot at DE last year anyway in the sub packages, the extra weight shouldn't affect his speed too much, if at all, and a bit more bulk will help going against the tackles when he's up on the line. Was a monster against the run last year, I'm hoping for double digit sacks this year.

More wear and tear at DE, just ask Demarcus Ware. Not only are you butting heads (literally) with 300lb+ OT's, you are carrying the extra weight on your frame too.

He's young so it shouldn't be a big problem, but it all adds up in the end............

Well to start out with...he weigh 252 in 2014, so gaining 18 lbs won,t be a big difference to his weight.....But it does look like Ken Norton jr has major plans for this guy as he will be rushing the QB more in 2015...

Yeah, be good to see him producing that many.

Look like Mack is weighing about 265lbs this season and is being talk about being one of the starting DE on the team.....this could be a great start for Mack who does have amazing speed for a linebacker...

Excellent, hopefully he can produce a good number of sacks and hurries from there.

think the plan is for Mack to rush the QB on almost every play.

he may get to double digit sacks for the season, however if opponents have us beat by the 3rd quarter, they won't be airing it out as much so Mack may only just about reach double digits. still looking forward to him terrorizing opposing QB's this year.
