Raiders rookie Khalil Mack has already set some high goals for himself, but now he can cross off “become a professional writer.”
Mack pinch-hit for the vacationing SI.com’s Peter King in today’s Monday Morning Quarterback, and mostly expressed his excitement about joining a veteran-laden Raiders defense.
The pass-rushing specialist made it clear he has a lot to learn, but said he thinks the Raiders plan to use him at multiple spots on the field.
“I like the idea of being the guy other teams have to look out for,” he said.
With established veterans such as Justin Tuck and LaMarr Woodley, Mack won’t have to be the sole provider of pass-rush. But his young legs and multiple skills will come in handy for a defense which will have to carry the Raiders this year.
