KHALIL MACK’S NFL CAREER Khalil Mack is coming into his own as one of the NFL’s (National Football League’s) premier linebackers. The Oakland Raiders thought highly enough of Mack to make him their first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, using the fifth pick to acquire him. The faith the Raiders had in Mack’s abilities was not misplaced. He left college after a stellar four-year career that earned him all-conference (Mid-American Conference) defensive honors. Mack was lightly regarded coming out of high school, but once he got on the college gridiron, he developed into a feared pass rusher and tackler. Scouts admired Mack’s performance at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and at 6 feet, 3 inches (1.90 m) and 251 pounds (113.9 kg), he appeared to meet the “eye test” as a potential high first-round draft pick and impact player in the NFL. Mack earned a spot on the NFL All-Rookie team in 2014 and went on to become the Defensive Player of the Year (DPoY) in 2016.
