Bottom line

Look out below!

Right as Mack starts to draw comparisons to Taylor, the Raiders start using him the same way the Giants us Taylor. And the result was Mack having a dominant, Taylor-like game against the Browns on Sunday. So as he drew those comparisons  before Sundays game, those comparisons are going to turn up with the Raiders running the 3-4.

He will be in his natural element, rushing the passer, destroying run plays to his side and excelling in pass coverage. He’ll be chasing down running plays that go to the other side of the field as well. Guys like him can take over a game on defense and as he continues to do that, he will climb up the NFL’s top-100 list.
