The defense began to take the field today in Indianapolis, and a linebacker from Buffalo had a day to surely increase his stock.

Khalil Mack, outside linebacker from the University of Buffalo, led in nearly every category. He ran the 40 in 4.65 seconds. In a great display of lower body explosiveness, he posted a 128 inch broad jump and a 40 inch vertical jump. His 3 cone drill was no slouch either, at 7.08 seconds.

He ran the 20 yard shuttle in 4.18 seconds, and bench pressed 23 reps.

Leading up to the events at the Combine, Mack was looked at by some as the best linebacker available. He did nothing to quell that notion.

In other news, Jadeveon Clowney showed that no matter what he has done off of the field, he is a force on it. His official 40 time was 4.53 seconds, which could rival most of the wide receivers that were in Indy. He posted a 37.5 inch vertical jump and a 124 inch broad jump.

Unfortunately, Michael Sam underperformed a bit, posting a 4.91 40 yard dash. His Pro day will be huge for him, as it will be for others.
