Khalil Mack could very well be the first player selected in the draft. Looking back now, many in Buffalo wished they would have seen Mack in action. Is it UB's fault, the local media, or something else that Buffalo sports fans did not see Mack live. Reports today have the Houston Texans, who own the first overall pick in the upcoming draft, have graded Mack higher over Clowney. Peter King's Monday Morning Quarter Back article:
- Houston, at No. 1, isn’t set on Jadeveon Clowney. In fact, one FORS (Friend of Rick Smith) told me the Texans general manager likes Khalil Mack over Clowney, and we still don’t know which quarterback Houston would choose if it chooses one first overall. I still think the Texans would go with a more sure thing with the first overall pick than a quarterback—and that sure thing could also be tackle Greg Robinson. But imagine Mack, the outside linebacker from the University of Buffalo, being the first pick in a stacked draft. Wouldn't that be something—a second straight Mid-American Conference player (Eric Fisher, Central Michigan, by Kansas City) as the top pick in the NFL draft?
