Big weekend for UB linebacker

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 22, 2014 – 6:10 pm

There are going to be a lot of eyes on UB Bulls Khalil Mack when he takes the field at the NFL combine with the rest of the linebackers Monday. And many observers may wonder how a relatively obscure prospect at the start of last fall became one of the top prospects in the draft playing for Buffalo in the Mid-American Conference.

Mack says he’s proud of the UB football program and the coaches who helped develop him into a top draft prospect.

“We have good talent, we have great coaches,” he told reporters Saturday at the combine. “We had Coach Turner Gill who recruited me. We have Jeff Quinn who came in and stamped us with a great staff-Coach William Inge and Coach Lou Tepper, my linebacker coaches when I was there. I feel like they help us get ready for this great league.”

As far as the combine, Mack has an agenda for his on-field workouts.

“I can show that I have good feet, I have good hands,” he said. “But…I feel like I showed all I have on film, and hopefully I can stamp it this weekend.”

Mack measured in at 6-2½, 251 pounds at the combine, but those numbers don’t seem to impress him.

“That’s pretty solid,” he said. “But it doesn’t matter-height-weight—I like to play football.”
