Taysir Mack may have begun his college career at Indiana, but he grew into an NFL prospect during his four seasons at Pitt.
After a freshman season at Indiana in 2017, Mack transferred to Pitt and emerged as a key target during Kenny’s Pickett career at Pitt. With 2,059 yards and 12 touchdowns on 138 receptions at Pitt, Mack put together one of the more productive receiving careers in program history.
And now he’s off to the NFL. The first step toward his goal is the Collegiate Bowl, where he’ll play on the National Team.
It’s about time we release rosters 👀

— The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl (@NFLPABowl) January 22, 2022
The 2022 Collegiate Bowl is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. However, like the Senior Bowl, there will be a week-long schedule in which NFL draft prospects will be able to showcase for NFL scouts and coaches at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
Mack and the National Team will be coached by former NFL head coach Marvin Lewis, while the American Team will be coached by former NFL head coach Jeff Fisher.
Mack’s best season at Pitt came in 2019 when he caught 63 balls for 736 yards and three touchdowns, however, he also caught 25 balls for 557 yards and a touchdown in 2018 and 27 balls for 461 yards and three touchdowns in 2021.
A reliable target during his four years in Pittsburgh, he was able to make a sustained impact on intermediate and deep throws in Pitt’s offense. He’ll need to showcase his increased speed and strong hands at the Collegiate Bowl to build a Day 3 NFL Draft case.
