5 Most Intriguing Offensive Draft Prospects from MAC

MAC NFL Draft

The MAC has produced several NFL players over the years, including two defensive players (Khalil Mack and Jimmie Ward) taken in the first round of the 2014 draft. This year, offensive prospects will look to take center stage. Here are five players to watch on offense.

5. Tyler Loos (LT-Northern Illinois)

Tyler Loos faces two big questions entering this season. First, can he stay healthy? That's the biggest knock on Loos, who has yet to play a full season for the Huskies. Second, can Loos and the rest of the offensive line be as productive without Jordan Lynch at QB? With Lynch, the team ranked fifth in yards per game and sacks allowed. If both answers are yes, Loos may hear his name called late.

With QB Keith Wenning now in the NFL, Jahwan Edwards should see plenty of work for Ball State in 2014. This may end up hurting his quest to be drafted as teams should already be concerned about his 622 carries in three years. While he is on pace to break several school records, Edwards has struggled against superior teams. He is averaging only 84.8 yards and less than a touchdown per game against power five conference opponents.

Travis Greene went from rarely used wide receiver to record breaking running back in one year. He rushed for over 1,500 yards and 11 touchdowns as a redshirt sophomore. However, he failed to reach the century mark against all three major conference opponents the Falcons played last year. Another concern is Greene's lack of a second gear, which prevented him from breaking long runs. Greene will be expected to produce similar numbers in 2014.

Greg Mancz has started 38 consecutive games -- 35 at right guard and three at right tackle. He is expected to move over to the left side this year and is listed as the starting LG on the Toledo depth chart. With the instincts to also play center, Mancz should be intriguing to teams late in the draft. The Rockets are scheduled to play Missouri and Iowa State this season which will allow Mancz to prove his worth against tougher competition.

Any NFL team looking for a deep threat needs to keep an eye on Titus Davis. He leads all active FBS receivers with 18.9 yards per catch. He's also on pace to break several school records set by Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown. While Davis lacks elite speed, he has great acceleration and is able to get behind defenders. Davis must learn to beat press coverage in order to succeed in the NFL, but he is worth an early pick on day three.
