Career highlights and awards

Thomas Lee Mack (born in November 1, 1943 in Cleveland, Ohio) played left guard for the Los Angeles Rams, spending all 13-years with them from 1966-1978. Mack was the son of a professional baseball player (Cleveland Indians' second baseman, Ray Mack, aka Raymond James Mack [born Raymond James Mlckovsky])

Mack was the number 1 pick of the Rams in the 1966 NFL Draft, second overall, from the University of Michigan. He was one of only two rookies to not be cut in George Allen’s tough veteran-dominated squad.

During his rookie campaign when starter Don Chuy was injured during the 5th game of the season, Mack moved into the lineup. He was back as the starter for 3 games after that, lost out to Ted Karras briefly, only to reclaim the position and start for the next 12 years.

Mack never missed a game in his career, appearing in 184 consecutive contests, a streak topped only by Merlin Olsen and Jack Youngblood. During Mack's career with the Rams they compiled an impressive record, with winning seasons 12 out of the 13. During this span, the Rams enjoyed a .720 winning percentage with a won-lost-tie record of 129-48-7. They won their division eight times and made it to four NFC championship games.

Mack was selected to 11 Pro Bowls over the span of his career, the first coming after his 2nd season in 1967. He missed only one Pro Bowl appearance the rest of his career (1976). Mack’s 11 invitations earned him a third-place tie with Bob Lilly and Ken Houston for the most selections all time.

Mack was selected First-team All-Pro four times (1969, 1971, 1973, 1974) and Second-Team All-Pro 4 times (1968, 1970, 1972, and 1975). In addition he was named All-NFC 8 times in 1970-1975 & 1977, 1978 and earned 2nd-Team All-NFC honors in 1976.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
