Khalil Mack

Round: First, fifth overall

Position: Outside linebacker

School: Buffalo

Height, weight: 6-3, 251

Resume: Dominated suspect competition as the most productive defensive player in school history with 28.5 sacks, 75 tackles for loss and 16 forced fumbles for his career. Mack is versatile enough to play in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense and should find an immediate role as a nickel pass rusher.

Quote: "My versatility helps me in a lot of ways. If you have a guy who can rush the passer, as well as drop in coverage, that covers two of the big issues on the defense," Mack said at the NFL scouting combine.
