Outside Linebacker Khalil Mack

Throw this up there atop the list of “obvious choices,” but I would be foolish not to mention the new All-Pro linebacker in town. Khalil Mack had himself a game on Sunday night, and boy was it fun to watch.

The interesting thing going from Week 1 to Week 2 is the fact that the Packers’ offensive line was a top-10 unit according to Pro Football Focus, going into this season.

The Seahawks? Not so much.

Seattle’s offensive line saw their quarterback get sacked six times against the Broncos on Sunday. Half of those came from fellow All-Pro Von Miller. Just in case you’re slow at math, that’s three sacks tallied for Miller on Wilson.

Mack should have similar success, and who knows, he could end up with a trio of sacks as well. Mack will be attacking Seahawks right tackle Germain Ifedi on Monday night, barring any shiftiness from Vic Fangio. Against the Broncos, Ifedi’s pass block grade was a measly 64.2.

It is worth noting that Seattle’s left tackle, Duane Brown, earned an even lower grade in that department with a 59.3. Leonard Floyd is already chomping at the bit, along with Akiem Hicks and Roy Robertson-Harris.

A multi-sack game is more than feasible for Mack on any given night, but against the Seahawks, he will be the main disruptor against Wilson and could once again prove why this unit is set to be a top defense in the game in 2018.
