Khalil Mack's pro day performance may have propelled the Buffalo linebacker into consideration for the first overall pick in the NFL draft according to one senior NFL analyst.
Gil Brandt, who used to work in player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys believes that Mack is one of seven players that the Houston Texans could select with the first pick in May.
"Khalil Mack's pro day performance put him in top-pick coversation.1 of 7 players #Texans could take, imo (in my opinion)." Tweeted Brandt earlier this afternoon.
Mack would be the second successive Mid-American Conference player to be drafted first overall after Eric Fisher was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the first pick in last year's draft.
The linebacker ran a 4.55 40-yard dash at his pro day and although he may be a little undersized at 6'3" and 251 pounds, there are many scouts who are keen on him.
Brandt also believes that the Texans could draft quarterbacks Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles or Teddy Bridgewater. Greg Robinson, Sammy Watkins and Jadeveon Clowney are also realistic draft options for Houston according to the NFL.com analyst.
