What the Oakland Raiders Have with Khalil Mack

The Raiders selected LB Khalil Mack out of Buffalo University with the 5th overall pick. This pick went over very well with their fans for good reason. Mack brings a badly needed pass rush to the Raiders defense. With Peyton Manning, Alex Smith and Phillip Rivers in the same division, the lack of a solid pass rusher has hurt the Raiders. Mack brings a lot to this team. Some experts...

2014 NFL Draft: Detroit Lions pick UNC TE Eric Ebron

It was a bit of a surprise, but after the Buffalo Bills traded up to snag Sammy Watkins, and Khalil Mack, Mike Evans, Anthony Barr and Justin Gilbert were all taken, the Lions decided to go with the top tight end in the draft at No. 10 overall, Eric Ebron. It would have been nicer if the Lions could have managed to trade down and still get Ebron or take a defensive back in line with...
