All-American linebacker Khalil Mack has been invited to the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, which begins on February 19 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Mack is the only Buffalo Bull invited this season and the first since Green Bay Packers running back James Starks.
Mack is a projected first round draft choice, on some boards as low as the top five players.
This came after a season which saw him named 2013 MAC Defensive Player of the Year as well as the Jack Lambert Award winner. He came in second in the voting for Butkus Award.
The Fort Pierce, FL native led the conference in sacks with 10.5 and tackles for loss with 19 to go along with a team-best 100 tackles. He also led the Bulls with three interceptions and five forced fumbles.
On the national scope Khalil broke the NCAA record for career forced fumbles with 16 and tied the NCAA mark with 75 career tackles for loss.
Mack is expected to be part of 335 invitees, including 35 linebackers, to attend what has come to be known as a four-day job interview with the NFL. Top executives, coaching staffs, player personnel departments and medical personnel from all 32 NFL teams will be on hand to evaluate the nation's top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL Draft.
