Wardell Mack shines on offense in Ehret victory

Sam SpiegelmanNational Recruiting Analyst

After catching Ehret play under-manned early this season, the offense had a different feel with top-100 DB Wardell Mack out wide as a receiver and also at his natural spot at corner. Mack showed off the speed and ability to instantly accelerate after the catch on offense with a handful of splash plays in the contest. He beat a defender on an in-breaking route for a touchdown at the tail end of the first half showing his suddenness. Mack’s speed also translates at cornerback, where he largely occupied the field side. He consistently puts himself around the football in coverage and is a willing tackler. Equally as important, Mack calls the shots on that side of the ball as a junior.


Wardell Mack shines in QB duty in Week 2

Top-100 junior defensive back Wardell Mack was all over Ehret’s depth chart on Friday as the starting quarterback as well as a starter in the secondary. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder was dynamic toting the rock when there were lanes. Mack boasts elite speed to the outside and was exceptional keeping defenders off-base in space. Defensively, Mack shifted back and forth between field corner and high safety. He was targeted once in coverage and made a handful of wrap-ups on stops underneath. His upside and ability to step into big shoes so frequently is noteworthy.


Wardell Mack shines at LSU camp

Wardell Mack was among the top performers at LSU skills camp on June 5 playing outside at cornerback. Mack, who is long at 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, wastes little movement and is seamless breaking on the ball in coverage. Mack has speed and length to disrupt attempts downfield and can go stride for stride with opposing receivers. He's instinctual and times his break-ups over the middle of the field well. He has position versatility to line up at corner or safety, with the ability to play all over the secondary.


Wardell Mack junior spring game

Sam SpiegelmanNational Recruiting Analyst

Wardell Mack‘s strong offseason continued with a spring game performance in which the top-100 defensive back shined largely on the offensive side of the ball. Mack, a long 6-foot-1, 175-pound cornerback, is dynamic after the catch and has a suddenness to his game. It’s also glaring when lined up in the secondary — he’s instinctual, seamless out of his breaks and has a nose for the ball.
