The "All-Mack" Team

The Austin American Statesman has come out with the top players during Mack's tenure here at Texas. I can't say that I disagree with any of the selections, but there are several things that stick out. First, is the ridiculously stacked list of defensive backs. Every single one of them has seen time in the NFL. Another is that Roy Williams is the only WR that made it out of the "Big 3" (Williams, B.J. Johnson and Sloan Thomas). And Chris Simms, from the same recruiting class as the Big 3, is not included either. Lastly, is the (other than D.J.) weak corps of linebackers Mack has produced so far. While Reed Boyd had a decent career at UT, I doubt anyone would think of him as elite. But otherwise, Mack has put together a nice little run while at Texas, if I do say so.
