DSA Mac has to show that he has fully recovered from that injury. Mac was not even close to his old self and his speed to the ball was a step slow and a lot of times he lacked fluency coming out of his backpedal especially turning to his left . Yes he could get a FAC 4sure but if he wants to get drafted he needs one more season under his belt because he has a lot of things to work out and on .
Saab... All those things are fair. The 2021 workout process will sort out a lot of that.
But the main thing. We WANT him to get drafted. But he doesn't NEED to be drafted to be a successful NFL player.
And a NFL team is much more likely to be willing to pay a FCS player 2 years removed from an ACL tear $10-$25K guaranteed money than the nearly $100K signing bonus that Bam got as a 7th-round pick.
The big game on the 2021 schedule would be Duke again. That would be the only game that would really pop to scouts unless we made a big run in the FCS playoffs and get to James Madison or NDSU. I just don't think Mac gains much by trying to scratch into being a 6th-7th round pick in 2022 instead of rolling the dice in 2021.
I was just thinking . Do we really know if Mac still wants an NFL career ? After all he will have his Masters under his belt . I remember Dexter Feaster doing that exact thing in training camp after making the last cut Dexter just walked away and never looked back. Either way it is going to be a dice roll stay or leave . Also there are to many success stories of players being undrafted free agents and making it big in the show and players being drafted and become a bust . It is just my opinion that he needs one more year to fine tune has Craft.

I figure with Mac it'll come down to whether Coach Washington tells him he's ready or not. When your head coach has a history of playing the position in the league and putting a couple of guys in the league at the position, you listen to his opinion.
