Players to Watch: Buffalo Week

#46 Khalil Mack- This is the best football player in the country you have never heard of. He is a pure 3-4 outside linebacker that stands 6’3, 248 pounds, and is extremely versatile. NFL scouts have recently picked up on Mack’s talent due to his excellent 2012 season. Mack recorded 94 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks, in just 11 games last season. Some scouts have Mack going as high as the 1st round. Despite his lack of notoriety out of high school, Mack has made a name for himself as a complete linebacker, who is not only an elite pass rusher, but also able to drop in to coverage.
