MAC football has produced its fair share of great games–which has popularized #MACtion on Twitter–and collegiate stars (Ben Roethlisberger, Jordan Lynch, and Kahlil Mack, to name a few) over the last decade, but the rise in the talent for each of the thirteen teams in the conference means a rise in the stakes for each of the conference’s thirteen head coaches.

2014 NFL Draft: Detroit Lions pick UNC TE Eric Ebron

It was a bit of a surprise, but after the Buffalo Bills traded up to snag Sammy Watkins, and Khalil Mack, Mike Evans, Anthony Barr and Justin Gilbert were all taken, the Lions decided to go with the top tight end in the draft at No. 10 overall, Eric Ebron. It would have been nicer if the Lions could have managed to trade down and still get Ebron or take a defensive back in line with...

Raiders get their much needed “impact player” in Khalil Mack

The Raiders got their wish in the 2014 Draft when Khalil Mack – the most talented linebacker and one of two elite defensive players in the draft – fell to them at the 5th overall pick. Mack was a consideration to go number one overall to the Texans and many thought that he would be snapped up by St. Louis, Jacksonville or Cleveland. Instead, the Draft fell the Raiders way and...

2014 NFL Draft First Round Grades: Oakland Raiders

5th Overall Pick: Khalil Mack, DE/OLB, BuffaloI was almost certain the Jaguars would be taking Mack with the third overall pick, the Raiders must have been thrilled when they saw Bortles' name called instead. This is as low as Mack was going to fall, so this is excellent value for Oakland, who is also filling a major position of need. Mack is a bit raw and won't be a superstar right...

Falcons More Like To Trade Up For To No. 4 For Khalil Mack?

  According Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, it makes more sense for the Falcons to trade up to No. 4 overall and take Buffalo LB Khalil Mack, than trade up to No. 1 overall for Jadeveon Clowney. The Browns are reportedly willing to trade out of the No. 4 pick, but this scenario would require Mack to get past the Rams at No. 2 and the Jaguars at No. 3 overall. Reports from the past...

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a real opportunity to make their team much better with their 3rd overall selection.  With guys like Mack, Watkins, Clowney, Bortles, Manziel all having a chance to be on the board it would be very tough for the Jags to mess this pick up.
