Draft Scout Khalil Mack News
04/15/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Linebackers: Khalil Mack, Buffalo, 6-3, 251, 4.65, 1...One-time lowly two-star prep recruit was overlooked by the big-time football schools. Buffalo benefitted from his combination of strength and speed that created consistent production as he set school records for sacks (28.5), tackles for loss (75) and forced fumbles (16). Played hybrid linebacker role in a 3-4 scheme, lining up with his hand on the ground and also standing up off the edge. Workout madman who is aggressive to the point of abrasive, evidenced by locker-room scuffle that resulted in suspension for 2012 season opener. Frankly: Versatile, aggressive athlete with impressive experience all over the front seven and a work ethic that should help him make the big step into the NFL. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
03/22/14 - 2014 NFL Draft: Week 1 Pro Day takeaways...1. Who needs a hamstring? Shazier's workout was terrific but like every other linebacker in the 2014 draft, he's chasing Buffalo's Khalil Mack when it comes to draft position. The 6-3, 251-pound Mack shaved over a 10th of a second off of his combine 40-yard dash time of 4.65 seconds, clocking in at 4.53-4.55 in his first attempt on campus. Because of minor hamstring tightness, Mack did not run a second 40 on Tuesday.
Like Shazier, production is not a question with Mack. He set school records for sacks (28½) and FBS marks for tackles for loss (75) and forced fumbles (16) and kicked off his senior campaign in style with a dominating performance against Shazier's Buckeyes, recording 9½ tackles, 2½ sacks and an interception which he returned 45 yards for a score. Mack is viewed as a top-six lock and is one of five players -- along with South Carolina's Jadaveon Clowney, Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson, and quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville) and Blake Bortles (Central Florida) -- that rank as legitimate candidates to be the No. 1 overall pick. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/17/14 - 2014 Pro Days: Buffalo's Khalil Mack runs 4.53-4.55...Buffalo outside linebacker Khalil Mack ran handheld times of 4.53-4.55 seconds at the school's pro day workout March 4th with more than 20 teams represented, including two teams with picks in the top five. Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine and Buffalo Bills general manager Kevin Whaley were on hand for Mack's morning workout during which he improved dramatically on a 4.65 "official" time in the 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine. At 4.53, Mack (6-3, 251), matched the wow-provoking 40 time of Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina's defensive end and NFLDraftScout.com's top-ranked player in the 2014 draft.
Because of minor hamstring tightness, Mack did not run a second 40 on Tuesday. Mack's game is his cannon-fire get-off, twitchy explosiveness and the combination on speed and strength to finish plays and get home. Production, albeit at the MAC level, is not a question with Mack as it is with Clowney, one reason NFLDraftScout's Rob Rang reported in January that scouts felt the Buffalo pass rusher was a legitimate option for the top overall pick. Mack set school records for sacks (28.5) and FBS marks for tackles for loss (75) and forced fumbles (16). Pettine, who was defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills last season, said last week he was eager to get a look at Mack but had not had occasion to do so while in the region last year. - The Sports Xchange
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Combine: From 40 times to Fritos, 10 Bold Predictions: 10. News flash - fast guys run fast. There will be plenty of eye-popping results from lower-level players, but expect South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney, Buffalo's Khalil Mack and UCLA's Anthony Barr -- the three highest-rated defenders on NFLDraftScout.com's board - to star in this setting. Don't be surprised if each is clocked in the 4.5-second range in the 40-yard dash. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 8. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo, 6-3, 248, 4.64, 1...Huge fish in smallish college pond with excellent combination of strength and speed that created consistent production as he set school records for sacks (28.5), tackles for loss (75) and forced fumbles (16). Played hybrid linebacker role in a 3-4 scheme, lining up with his hand on the ground and also standing up off the edge. Aggressive to the point of abrasive and sometimes irritated his own teammates. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
