Buffalo Linebacker Khalil Mack just keeps opening eyes and this Tuseday he did it in front of the nation and no less than eight NFL Scouts.

CBS Has Mack as the #2 defensive player of the year.

Never mind the mid-major stuff, this guy is a terror who would be a star in any league. And probably will be one soon in the NFL. Mack, who has sparked UB's rise after the program began this season 0-2 with losses to Ohio State and Baylor (combined record 16-0), does it all for a Bulls squad that is now 7-2 and held MAC foes to eight ppg. He has 3 INTs, 2 pick-6s, 11.5 TFLs. and 7.5 sacks. On Tuesday night, Mack had a forced fumble and three QB hurries in a 30-3 romp over Ohio. "Love this kid," said another NFL scout. "He's so explosive and there's so much he can do for you. He can do everything. He's got it all--he's athletic, quick, fast and instinctive."

The draft is going to be fun and the Mock's already love Khalil Mack.

CBS has Mack going 7th to Atlanta, for the Florida Prep player a move down south might be nice. Close to family and a warmer climate.

But Other drafts have him staying up north. Playing for the New York Giants!

8. New York Giants - Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo 6-3, 245 Remember when the Giants had a pass rush? They have ten (10!) sacks to date, and desperately need someone to make a play. Mack is a fantastic athlete who could slide into the top ten. After Clowney and Barr, Mack might be the best outside linebacker/defensive end in this year's class.

And then there is SBNation's own "Mocking the Draft" which has the best prediction of all.

According to the draft Guru's over Mack will move from the Northern Suburbs to the Southern Suburbs when he is picked up 9th by the Buffalo Bills.
