2014 Draft: Oakland Selects Khalil Mack
The Raiders were in a quandary with the 5th pick, when both of their top players were available in Mike Evans and Mack. The Raiders decided to help themselves out on defense by drafting the best linebacker in the class. Mack is a monster who will give the Raiders a force on the edge. He is just super disruptive all over the field, and could have gone at number one. The Raiders get good value at number five, and they have just upgraded big time on D. Another solid pick.
