In this play, Mack’s role is simply to occupy blockers. He again uses a stunt with Ellis but this time, Mack takes on three guys, freeing Ellis for a clear run at Kaepernick. Pause the clip just before Ellis breaks free and you’ll see the three blockers on Mack.

This next vine is three plays rolled in one. Mack coming from the left, the right, and up the middle. He can lineup anywhere and everywhere and make plays.

Play recognition. Mack sniffs out the swing pass and is inches away from a pick six.

The Buffalo Bills game might have been Mack’s best game all year.

Mack uses the same move he used on Duane Brown in the first clip, but this time from the opposite side. Kyle Orton never stood a chance.
