Writing for TheMMQB.com on Monday, Mack reiterated that he understands being a multifaceted player who can provide matchup problems is his NFL destiny.
"I think I'm at my best as a wild card on defense, being used at multiple spots on the field, as strange as that might sound," Mack wrote. "That's what the team has laid out for me, and I think that will be a good thing. I like the idea of being the guy other teams have to look out for."
"I think I'm still figuring out which pass-rush moves will be most effective in the NFL," Mack added. "I usually use a dip-and-rip off the edge, and it's pretty effective, but at the same time I have been learning a lot from Tuck and Woodley since I got to Oakland. I have a long arm that I think will be effective as well."
As for his career goals, Mack already has a quarterback sack checklist.
