The team with the second overall pick in the draft and the team with the third overall pick in the draft are both taking a long look at former Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack.
Mack is visiting Jacksonville today and tomorrow and St. Louis Thursday and Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Although he didn’t play at a football powerhouse, Mack was an outstanding college player and is widely viewed as the second-best defensive player in the draft, after South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
In fact, some people think that while Mack lacks Clowney’s freakish athleticism, Mack’s work ethic and mental approach to the game make him better than Clowney. There hasn’t been much buzz of the Texans considering Mack with the first overall pick, but it doesn’t look like Mack will have to wait long to hear his name called on draft night.
