Khalil Mack, OLB, University of Buffalo
If the Titans are not able to land one of Orakpo or Worilds, they should keep their eyes open for the best player available in the draft. Khalil Mack could fall to them at pick number eleven if several quarterbacks are taken in the top-10. Many professional mock drafts have as many as four quarterbacks going early, so talented edge rushers like Mack may be a real possibility.
Mack is criticized for being a product of small-school University of Buffalo. While he has not faced the same caliber of talent as some, his talent and ability are off the charts. At 6’3”, 248 lbs., Mack was able to rack up 10.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss in 2013.
No player is ever going to be a sure thing, but Mack is definitely worth a gamble if available in the Titans’ first draft slot.
