With the NFL Combine a couple of weeks away the mock drafts are heating up. CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang has put together his latest mock draft and has the Bills taking the top ranked prospect who played his college ball in closest proximity to One Bills Drive.

Rang has Buffalo taking UB’s Khalil Mack with the ninth overall pick. Here’s his analysis.

9. BUFFALO BILLS

(6-10)
Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo: With Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and impressive rookie Kiko Alonso leading the way, the Bills quietly emerged as one of the NFL’s top defenses in 2013 – at least against the pass. While ranking second in sacks (57) and fourth overall against the pass, the Bills fell short against the run, allowing 128.9 yards per run, fifth-worst in the NFL. Mack, the all-time leader in FBS history with 16 forced fumbles and tied for the all-time lead with 75 career tackles for loss over his career, would make sense from a schematic and geographic perspective.
