Mack is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year and was the first player to be named an All-Pro at two different positions in the same season.
In addition, it seems PFF releases a new stat about Mack every week that wows all of Raider Nation.
The only things Mack hasn’t done is win a Super Bowl title and win the NFL sack title. However, he came very close to the sack title in 2015 after his five-sack performance against the Denver Broncos.
Mack, who learned how to strip the quarterback in his third season, has improved each year and it is only a matter of time until there are zero missing accolades on his resume.
With that being said, it’ll be great to watch next year’s battle for best defensive player with Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt returning from a back injury. Mack will need another supreme season, with many more pressures, to keep his stranglehold on being the best defensive player in the NFL.
