As much of a fan as I've been of us trading down and possibly picking up a 2nd

I'm really starting to warm up to the idea of staying at #5 and taking Mack. As much as it would absolutely make my year for Jadeveon Clowney to fall all the way to #5 so we could snatch up the face of our franchise for the next 10 years, I just can't see how the best draft prospect in 2 years falls that far. But I've been looking more and more at Mack, and I've realized we have a chance to take a pro bowl caliber player that would be as equally effective in a 4-3 as he would be in a 3-4, which is something Allen and Tarver are looking for in their hybrid defense. Mack has the potential to be one of the best linebackers in football, a player that Mike Mayock says has no weaknesses. He can get after the passer as a 4-3 blitzing linebacker or as a 3-4 outside linebacker. Imagine Mack and Woodley coming off the edges and Sio moore and Roach in the middle. He's aggressive and strong at the point of attack in run support, plays whistle to whistle and follows the football with great speed, fluid in zone coverage, and obviously he's a tremendous upgrade over the inconsistent and expendable Kevin Burnett. Mack is a pick that isn't just a starter, he's a potential superstar in this league, and I believe playing alongside someone like Lamarr Woodley would greatly speed up his learning curve and transition to the NFL.
