Raiders LB Khalil Mack had 40 pressures last year and 4 sacks; This year he wants more sacks

Expect Khalil Mack to double his sack count this season

Expect Khalil Mack to double his sack count this season

Oakland Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack was an animal last season, but if you did not watch the game and just looked at the stats column, you would not have thought he was that effective.  Well that was not the case. Mack was able to get pressure on the quarterback and make him hurry, he just could not get sacks.  This year he hopes to change that. 

“I definitely want to get after the quarterback more this year,” Mack said, via Bill Williamson of ESPN.com. “I got some hits [in 2014], but people didn’t really see what I can do. Those sack numbers I had really weren’t me. At the end of the day, you want people to see you at your best.”

When you consider that Mack applied pressure on quarterbacks 40 times, but was only able to land four sacks, you have to assume he will double his sack total in 2015-16.
