Raiders Khalil Mack earns major praise from Patriots offensive tackle

mackThe stat sheet says Mack is the Raiders’ sixth-leading tackler with 18 stops and he awaits his first NFL sack, but the stats don’t tell the story. Mack relentlessly pressured Tom Brady against New England, abusing veteran left tackle Nate Solder in the process.

“He’s a good player, a young guy and an incredible talent,” Solder said.

The website Football Outsiders broke down Mack after the Patriots game and determined “there may not be a better rookie” and had film clips as evidence. Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver, agreed with Football Outsiders breakdown.

“Khalil Mack shed everybody. He was outstanding. He was all over the field,” Tarver said. “You can look and say he doesn’t have a sack, but that guy is all over the place right now. He’s hitting the heck out of quarterbacks, and go ahead and run to his side. That would be great.”
