Jerry McDonald is reporting at InsideBayArea.com that the Seattle Seahawks were present at Alex Mack's pro day on Wednesday. The California offensive lineman, weighed in at 307 lbs and 6'4" in height. He ran a 5.17 forty yard dash, after missing the combine through injury.
"Mack ended the day with assistant coaches from Baltimore, Seattle and Detroit, who peppered him with questions during a chalk talk and then adjourned to a film room for more probing of his football aptitude. Mack’s agent, Tim Younger, said his client has tentative visits scheduled with Baltimore, Atlanta, Denver, Seattle and Detroit." - Jerry McDonald
I'm not surprised by this news. Mack is a very intelligent, flexible lineman who could fit in at any position in the interior. He has the required athleticism to work in a zone blocking scheme and has prototypical size. Kyle Rota from College Talent Scout is particularly fond of Mack's abilities:
"I believe he will eventually be one of the best centers in the NFL. Mack is a rare player who is a great fit for any scheme – he has the traditional power to play in a man blocking scheme, and the quickness to get to the 2nd level in a zone blocking scheme. Like all college players, he needs to improve his hand use, but if any college player can I’d place my hopes on the high character, intelligent center from Cal." - Kyle Rota
Whether or not he'd be waiting for Seattle at the top of the second round remains to be seen. He could go in the early 20's, with a team like Minnesota potentially looking for a versatile offensive lineman. If Seattle are in position to draft Alex Mack he could well be playing in Seahawk blue in 2009 - he ticks every box Tim Ruskell look for.
