04:07 PM ET 12.21 | Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack has been one of the most talked about prospects heading in to the NFL Draft season, despite the fact that he does not play for a school in a traditional power conference. However, there is no denying Mack's ability and the NFL scouts have been taken notice. Many believe that Mack is one of the most talented pass rushers that will be available in the 2014 NFL Draft and he is beginning to draw some impressive comparisons. Recently, one AFC college scouting director went as far as to compare Mack to Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller. While Mack may lack the deep library of film against elite competition, all you need to do is turn on his game against Ohio State to see how impressive he can be. It may still be too early to tell, but Mack has a real shot at being drafted in the top 10, and he appears to be a top 15 lock.

Hopefully, he'll be able to stay away from the hippie lettuce.

Did Von Miller lose to San Diego St. also?

Mack is a very impressive player in his own right but I'm not sold on the Von Miller comparison. Granted they're similar physically at around 6'3, 250 each but Buffalo doesn't really play anybody of note and today against SDSU Mack was more or less invisible.

Would've been nice to see him play well today considering the competition was finally better but it didn't happen and that makes me go hmm.

Hopefully he gets drafted by a team with a dome. He didn't do too much today in the cold weather.

Not sure that is all that fair, SDSU ran plays away from him all night and double teamed his pass rush as well. That said, he looks like a good LB, saw nothing to see how he is lightyears ahead of all the other good LBs out there.
