Khalil Mack

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Op­ti­mist: Qui­etly mo­ti­vated by a drop in stature — he fell from No. 3 to No. 19 in NFL Net­work’s an­nual Top 100 list, which is voted on by play­ers — Mack takes ad­van­tage of hav­ing a healthy Akiem Hicks back and Quinn on the field to be­come a dev­as­tat­ing weapon on ev­ery down again, with 15 sacks and 22 quar­ter­back hits.

Pes­simist: While still a qual­ity pass rusher, it turns out 2019 was a sign of a ca­reer down­turn more than Mack be­ing a vic­tim of dou­ble- and triple-team­ing. And the re­al­ity is, at 29, Mack no longer is the dev­as­tat­ing threat he once was. He strug­gles to match his 8.5 sacks of last sea­son.
