Even making it to this point in his career as an undrafted free agent is a testament to his work ethic since joining the Giants.
As a senior at Ohio State, he set career highs in receptions (27), yards (361) and touchdowns (3).
Entering Sunday game, Mack had just one catch for one yard on the season.
