Mike Mayock’s top 100 list has some shockers; Khalil Mack is #1

Mike Mayock is one of the best and well rounded NFL Draft Analysts in the industry, but his top guy is a shocker to many.  This is an amazing top 10 list, especially when it has Johnny Football at number 10.  I think Mayock is about right, and would not be surprised to see some crazy things happen on Thursday on the first day of the draft.
