Packers Calendar: Pro-Day Circuit Heats Up, Including the Khalil Mack Show

Packers Calendar: Pro-Day Circuit Heats Up, Including the Khalil Mack Show

The annual pro day circuit got started on Monday, when the Packers reportedly had a scout in attendance at the University of Minnesota's workout, and heats up even more on Tuesday.

At least eight schools are holding their pro day on Tuesday, including Auburn, Purdue, Northwestern, Buffalo, SMU, Alabama State, Eastern Illinois and Slippery Rock. The Packers may not have scouts at every single one of them, but you can bet they'll be represented at several of them.

Among the top attractions today are a pair of the top edge rushers in this year's draft class, the type that would play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense like the Packers run, in Buffalo's Khalil Mack and Auburn's Dee Ford.

Both were prolific sack artists this past season, each coming up 10.5 sacks in 2013.

Mack has already reportedly ran the 40 at his pro day and impressed:

It's quite possible Mack has emerged as the No. 1 overall prospect in this year's draft class. There's a degree of safety in Mack, whereas players such as Jadeveon Clowney and several of the quarterbacks have a boom-or-bust quality about them.

Other prospects on display Tuesday include Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, Purdue cornerback Ricardo Allen, Northwestern receiver Kain Colter and a host of others from Auburn.

General manager Ted Thompson's college alma mater at SMU is also holding their pro day, where the top prospect might be quarterback Garrett Gilbert.

I believe Mack has earned himself a top 5 pick. I think he will be the 2nd defensive player taken behind Clowney.

Yea I think that's safe to say. At the worst the Falcons will take him 6th.
