College careerEdit

FreshmanEdit

After impressing coaches with his excellent pass catching ability, Mack quickly found a spot in Notre Dame's passing game. Mack made the most of his targeted passes, ending the season with just over 15 yards per catch, including three receptions over 30 yards. Mack came up big for the Irish in critical moments against both Temple and USC. Late in the game against USC, Mack had a clutch 35 yard catch-and-run deep into USC territory, which set up a tie-breaking touchdown.[7] This, plus other timely plays in critical situations, quickly established Mack as a dependable player.[8]

Professional careerEdit

Mack was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the seventh round (231st overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.
