Draft Scout Khalil Mack News
12/05/13 - 2013 MAC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: LB Khalil Mack, Buffalo...Mack, a native of Fort Pierce, Fla., was part of a Buffalo team that finished 8-4 overall, 6-2 in Conference play. Mack set the NCAA record for 16 career forced fumbles during his collegiate career. The senior is a three-time All-MAC first-team selection and leads the Bulls with 94 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. Mack also established a tie for the NCAA record for career tackles for loss with 75 for his career. - MAC football
12/02/13 - WEEK 14 CBSSPORTS.COM DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack...Mack already claimed the NCAA career record for forced fumbles earlier this season, and with 2.5 tackles for loss against Bowling Green on Friday the future 1st Round NFL Draft pick tied Jason Babin's NCAA record of 75 tackles for loss. The Bulls missed out on an opportunity to play for the MAC title, but with Mack's notoriety and an 8-4 record there should be an opportunity to pad this impressive career. - CBSSports.com
11/29/13 - WEEK 13 MAC EAST DIVISION DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Buffalo LB Khalil Mack...Senior linebacker Khalil Mack (Fort Pierce, Fla.) had a team-high eight tackles, three sacks and three forced fumbles in Buffalo's 44-7 win at Miami. Two of his forced fumbles were recovered by the Bulls and both were turned into touchdowns. His third forced fumble was scooped up by teammate Okoye Houston and returned 60 yards for a touchdown. In the game, Mack broke the NCAA record for career forced fumbles with 16 career forced fumbles, surpassing the previous record of 14. - MAC football
11/29/13 - University at Buffalo coach Jeff Quinn could have saved himself the airfare last December to find out firsthand whether star linebacker Khalil Mack had decided to return for his senior season. Mack had already made up his mind he was coming back before Quinn showed up at his doorstep in Florida. "I already knew what I was going to do in my heart, yeah, deep down," Mack recalled, saying the NFL draft could wait one more year because he had plenty of unfinished business to take care of back in Buffalo.
A psychology major, Mack didn't want to disappoint his mother, a school teacher, who wanted her son to finish his degree. And then there was football. Mack didn't want to end his college career without one more shot at turning the Bulls into a winner. "You don't want to leave a loser," Mack said. "I felt that those first three seasons, it wasn't the right way to go out, man. I wanted to go out on top."
Mack has more than done his part in boosting Buffalo and solidifying his place as one of the best players in the program's 119-year history. Chosen as one of five Butkus Award finalists given to the nation's top linebacker, Mack's been the leader on a defense that's helped put Buffalo (8-3, 6-1 Mid-American Conference) in a position to match a school record for victories and win only its second East Division title. - AP Sports
11/21/13 - The 2014 Senior Bowl is still over two months away, but most of the invitations have already gone out to the nation's best senior prospects. Phil Savage, former NFL general manager and now the Executive Director of the event, tweeted that “approximately 70 invitations for 110 roster spots in the game” have been sent with more to go out later this month.
Several invites have already been announced, some by the players themselves and others by the Senior Bowl. Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard, Arkansas C Travis Swanson and Virginia DL Brent Urban have accepted invites, while Buffalo LB Khalil Mack is among several others who have received an invitation, but have yet to announce their decision. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
