Khalil Mack: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)There are some who consider Mack a superior prospect to Jadeveon Clowney, who the Texans took at the first overall pick. Although he doesn't have Clowney's rare combination of length and speed, Mack is still an elite all-around athlete and is about as polished as you can ask of a rookie. Mack will likely take on a starter's workload for Oakland on the edge, be it as a true defensive end or OLB/DE hybrid role like the one Von Miller plays in. Like Clowney, Mack will be a valuable IDP in 2014 if he's given DL eligibility in fantasy leagues.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Just like Clowney's case, prospective owners need to verify that Mack is actually listed as a DL before investing in him as one. Oakland ran a 4-3 in 2013, so Mack is tentatively expected to be listed as an end, in which case he'd have immediate DL1 potential. The fifth overall pick out of Buffalo, Mack has 4.65 speed to go along with a 40-inch vertical and 128-inch broad jump, making him one of the league's elite athletes on the defensive line. The Raiders have LaMarr Woodley and Justin Tuck around to hog some of the DE snaps, but Woodley and Mack can play OLB at times, and Tuck has been known to shift inside on passing downs, leaving several avenues for all three to play at once. The Raiders would be silly not to get Mack on the field as much as possible, considering he made 74 tackles for loss over the last four years and forced 16 fumbles.
