One more year of Big Mack! Khalil Mack forgoes the NFL draft.

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE
"The expectations here are to graduate and compete for championships. It is important to me and my family that I get my degree and I know with the talent we have coming back we are going to be a very good football team. I believe in our coaching staff and my teammates and I know we can do something special." -- Khalil Mack

Mack did toy with the idea of entering the NFL draft but depite being seen as a potential fourth round choice, and one of the top 20 or so linebackers in the draft, Mack will stay at UB for his Senior season.

Mack already holds the school record for forced fumbles (11) and tackles for loss (56). Khalil is also only 19 tackles for loss shy of the career NCAA record. Bu coming back he will join 16 other returning starters from a team that finished the 2012 campaign strong by winning three of the final four games.

For his career, Mack has 227 tackles, 56 tackles for loss, 18 sacks and 11 forced fumbles.
