Steelers Assistant Joey Porter On Hand To Watch Pro Day Of Buffalo LB Khalil Mack
The University of Buffalo held their Pro Day Tuesday indoors at the Buffalo Bills practice facility and the Pittsburgh Steelers had representatives on hand to observe top-rated outside linebacker Khalil Mack go through the paces.
New Steelers defense assistant and former linebacker Joey Porter was present for the action on Tuesday along with pro scouting coordinator Brandon Hunt and the two watched Mack turn in an unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.55 seconds. He only ran once, however, because of tightness in one of his legs.
Mack, who weighed in Tuesday at 252 pounds, stood on most of his other numbers from combine, but did go through individual position drills and also reportedly did 23 reps on the bench.
Many believe that Mack easily solidified himself as a top-ten draft pick on Tuesday and there are a few that actually believe he has a chance to be the first-overall selection. The Steelers could use another young outside linebacker, but will presumably have no shot at drafting Mack unless he falls to them in the first round.
