He hasn’t played a down of football since the UB Bulls ended their season in late December. But linebacker Khalil Mack has seen his stock in the NFL draft shoot up like a rocket since then.
At the NFL combine in Indianapolis, NFL Network Draft Analyst Mike Mayock told a Minneapolis radio station Friday night that Mack is at the top of his list–the number one prospect in the NFL Draft.
Mack had nothing but thanks for Mayock when he took the podium in Indy Saturday afternoon.
“Mike Mayock’s the man, he’s the man,” Mack said. “I want to prove him right. I’ve been working hard these past five-six weeks and I’m ready to grind and get out there and work out.”
Mack indicated he doesn’t feel any extra pressure after getting Mayock’s seal of approval.
“The thing about Mike Mayock, again, I love him..” he said, “but I just want to keep proving myself. I want to be the best. I don’t know who you guys talk to but in anything, my dad always taught me, you want to be the best in anything and everything that you do.’
Mack and the rest of the combine linebackers are scheduled to work out on the field Monday in Lucas Oil Stadium.
