Mack impressed pro scouts at his 2014 NFL combine workout at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Mack is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and has been named First Team All-Pro three times. He is as equally respected a pass rusher as Aaron Donald (Los Angeles Rams) and Jadeveon Clowney (Houston Texans), the thirteenth and first picks, respectively, who were in the same draft class as Mack. He is similar in his approach to the game as other all-time great linebackers such as Mike Singletary, Ray Nitschke, and Dick Butkus. In fact, his outstanding 2016 season that led to his player of the year award also earned him the Butkus Award for professional linebackers. Mack racked up an impressive fifty-three sacks in his first five years with theOakland Raiders and Chicago Bears. He also recorded 350 tackles, including 268 solo tackles, and 78 tackles for loss. His tackles for loss total at the end of 2018 already placed him twenty-sixth among active players. Mack led all linebackers in quarterback sacks in 2016 with fifteen. He is the only NFL player ever to record a sack, an interception return for a touchdown, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in a single game, something Mack did, not just once, but twice.
