Analysis:

Khalil Mack is the NCAA record holder in Career Forced Fumbles and Career Tackles for Loss. He is one of the most productive players not just in the 2014 NFL Draft, but in NCAA history. Mack was reliable all four years he started at Buffalo and was a consistent playmaker. That being said, his competition at Buffalo in the MAC was not outstanding (although he destroyed Ohio State).

Mack wreaks havoc on offenses with his 6-3, 248 lbs frame. He shows smooth lateral movements and quick hips. Mack is very good against both the pass and run showing instincts which help make up for his speed. He is very experienced and has a variety of pass rush moves. Mack is highly motivated and is a very hard worker. Character will never be an issue with Mack. He was a vocal leader at Buffalo. He is can doing anything effectively including rushing the passer, providing run support and dropping back into coverage (three interceptions in 2013).

Negatives:

The only negative that can be found in Mack is his competition in the MAC. But whever he played in big games (Ohio State), he starred. The bottom line is that Mack has a very high ceiling, and a very low floor.
