Oakland Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack is already one of the best players in the NFL and is arguably the best defender in the entire league.
Each week it seems like a new amazing stat comes out about the 2016 NFL defensive player of the year.
Now, Mack has the second most pressures in a two-year period out of any NFL defensive player since 2006, per Pro Football Focus.

Unfortunately, the information was not available to us on who was No. 1, but that should not take away from how special of a player Mack is.
Just remember, Mack could put up these numbers during just his second and third years in the league. He is still a very young player, yet already amongst the NFL elite.
With another season under his belt, it should not surprise anyone if he shatters his past numbers and takes over the No. 1 position in pressures.
