Chicago Bears: EDGE Khalil Mack

As someone who has been a huge fan of Khalil Mack dating back to his days at Buffalo, this sounds like a fantastic idea. Not only would the Seahawks immediately upgrade their pass rush, but they’d be getting one of the most disruptive and instinctive defenders in the NFL.

Even if you hate the team Mack plays for, you can help but admire his game. He’s a fearsome edge rusher, is an elite run defender and can even make plays in coverage when called upon. That doesn’t happen often, but Mack is still exceptional at it. When it comes to defensive versatility at an NFL level, there aren’t many that do it better than the former first-round pick.

There’s a reason why he’s the only player in league history to earn All-Pro honors at two different positions in the same season.

With Mack in town, the Seahawks would no longer have a significant need on the edge. He’d provide an instant upgrade over the likes of Bruce Irvin, Benson Mayowa and L.J. Collier. Although he is coming off a bit of a down year with the Chicago Bears, there’s no denying he’s still one of the premier defensive stars the league has to offer.

Mack gives Seattle a stud edge defender who can up the playmaking ability and help put the ball in Russell Wilson‘s hands more often.
