2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo

Most of the country still has not heard about Mack's ascension to the top of the MAC, but they will soon enough when he is drafted very early in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Mack is a highly intelligent, athletic and instinctive player with almost no flaws in his game, whether he is defending the run or pass. Elite speed. Reads and reacts very quickly and can get up to speed rapidly to make plays. Seems to be one step ahead and one beat faster than every other defender. Experience all over the front seven and could feasibly play any LB spot in 4-3 or 3-4. Can take on blockers very well and dislodge himself through great use of hands. Rips and slides into open space well in traffic.

Versatile coverage abilities. Can man up or face up TEs with ease. Could go up against Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski with equaled athleticism and strength. Still working on man coverage skills, which is one area he'll need improvement. Rushes the passer well and stays relentless when battling blockers one-on-one.

Works really hard in pursuit. Relentless on the backside of a play. Looks to get in the mix every play. Unreal range against the run. Quick and relatively agile. Foot speed is very good.

Mack projects as a Top 5 selection 2014 NFL Draft.
