New defensive coordinator Teryl Austin has said he plans to blitz more, and Khalil Mack is the perfect man for the job. A great athlete, Mack earned a reputation as a defensive playmaker while at Buffalo. If you’re concerned about the level of competition he faced in the MAC, find his highlights against Ohio State from this season; he was just as dominant. Mack looks like a future All-Pro at the next level and would be a mainstay in Detroit for years.
