Raiders veteran compares Khalil Mack to Hall of Famers

Khalil Mack did not win rookie of the year, but his veteran teammate Justin Tuck feels he can be as great as the Hall of Famers who did it before him.

“I’ve watched a lot of film on guys like Derrick Thomas, Lawrence Taylor … I’m not saying that he will be that player, I’m saying he’s capable of being that player,” Tuck said last week, per “Believe me, I know what praise I just gave him. I know what category I just potentially put him into.
“The thing I love about him that people don’t get to see every day is not the fact that he’s an absolute physical specimen,” Tuck continued. “It’s not that. It’s that he’s smart, he understands the game, but he also understands that he doesn’t know it all.”
