NFL Draft rumors: Jaguars' Gus Bradley raves about Khalil Mack

Buffalo standout Khalil Mack is one of the most athletic and explosive pass rushers in the 2014 NFL Draft, which has led to him earning some top five consideration just three weeks out from next month’s draft.

One of the team’s picking in the top three, the Jacksonville Jaguars who hold the No. 3 overall pick, have a head coach in Gus Bradley that knows all about having a stable of talented defensive linemen from his time with the Seattle Seahawks and he had some high praise for Mack as a player.

“He’s one of those guys you feel like that’s going to play for a long time; just extremely talented,” Bradley said, via NFL.com.

“And I think if you’re a 3-4 team, you look at him and you say, ‘God, the guy can rush. He can drop.’ There’s so many different positions that you can put him in. … I know that each team probably looks and says, ‘We have a place for him, and he would fit in very nicely.”

In Jacksonville, Mack would be a player that Bradley could move all along the defensive formation with some downs playing as linebackers and others with his hand in the dirt.

It will be interesting to see what direction the Jaguars go in the draft, but if Jadeveon Clowney is off of the board Mack should be one of the favorites to find a home in Jacksonville.
