UB OLB Khalil Mack is widely seen as a top 10 draft prospect. After performing at the University at Buffalo pro day in Orchard Park, Mack made it clear his draft stock will have little impact on his motivation to prove he belongs in the NFL.
Mack still carries a chip on his shoulder from being lightly recruited and for being knocked for playing in the Mid-American conference.
“I set goals for myself. I want to continue to work hard and get better. I don’t feel like this is my final goal in a sense,” he said. “I feel like there’s a lot more that I’ve got to prove especially coming out of the MAC conference. I feel like I’ve got to go out there and dominate on the next level and I’m ready to do that.”
Mack doesn’t feel it puts any more pressure on him to succeed, but he does want to show opponents they better not underestimate him when he’s lined up against them.
“There’s not a label on you, but they’re taking it for granted, but until they feel what you’re coming off the edge with and hitting them in the mouth, I feel like that’s what I’m out to prove,” he said.
