Discussion thread.

Go!

Love that he is an every down impact LB.

Khalil Mack - OLB - Buffalo

An excellent run-stopper, Mack has the violent hands to get off blocks, range to make plays in pursuit and outstanding striking power as a tackler. He's just as effective on third down. He's an effective speed-to-power pass-rusher with the upper-body strength to press offensive tackles, drive them back and get off the block in time to make the play. Mack also shows good range in underneath zone, and he's capable of running with tight ends in coverage. The biggest knock is the level of competition he faced playing in the Mid-American Conference. Although he shined against Ohio State, critics are quick to point out he didn't face elite offensive tackles in that game, either. Fair points, but Mack didn't make Buffalo's schedule, and he checks all the boxes when it comes to the physical attributes.

Spelt his name wrong..

This is the pick ive wanted since January. Khalil Mack will be one of the BEST players in football. He makes an impact EVERY play. He was Ray Lewis's favorite prospect due to both skills and passion. Guys, we finally have a legit 1st Round Pick. I'm so happy. Good job Reggie.

I'm thinking he'll be a Von Miller that DA's been wanting. Obviously I don't follow the broncos much so can someone explain how we'll use him?

Going by the draft thread, it seems like he's splitting opinion. Maybe 75% very happy with the pick, but a few clearly not.

Can't see why anyone would be critical of that pick, unless they were a Manziel fanboy, in which case their opinion doesn't really matter.

I question the fit. He's not the great pass rusher like he's made out to be and that makes him a 4-3 OLB with some serious trade value we passed up on. Tarver and Allen are the ones who will make or break this pick.

exactly how it should be, defensive pick for our defensive minded head coach in what could be his last year..i think most would agree no excuses this year, show us what you can do Allen!!

That one is nitpicky. I don't like the pick, but that isn't a very bad game. Plus Baylor has a good OL.
