Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack is one of the top pass rushers in the 2014 NFL Draft class, and many were hoping to see him put his skills on display in Mobile, Alabama next week at the 2014 Reese’s Senior Bowl.
Unfortunately, Mack has decided against attended the Senior Bowl and he will not participate after turning down his invitation.
The news surfaced Tuesday afternoon on Twitter:
Khalil Mack has signed with agent Joel Segal. Dad sez he’s skipping Senipr Bowl. Not on list of accepted invites

Often times teams can be put off by players not taking the opportunity to work out in front of the NFL scouts in attendance, but Mack is already one of the premier players at his position and he doesn’t have much to gain.
Even without attending next week’s Senior Bowl, Mack is expected to be a top fifteen pick with a real shot at cracking the top ten.
