Raiders DE Khalil Mack has been historically dominant

Despite the Oakland Raiders ranking No. 26 in team defense a season ago, edge rusher Khalil Mack remains a bright spot for a defense seeking improvement.

Mack’s vicious pass rushing and run stuffing capabilities garnered him Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2016. However, last year wasn’t Mack’s first season dominating opposing offensive lines; it’s a trend he has continued since his rookie campaign in 2014.
