We knew the Chicago Bears would have one more player showing up on the Pro Football Focus Top 101 Players of 2018 list once they revealed their top 10, we just didn’t know where Khalil Mack would end up.

It didn’t take long for him to make an appearance as he popped up at number 10.

Here’s the full list of Bears on their list.

10) OLB - Khalil Mack

11) DL - Akiem Hicks

14) FS - Eddie Jackson

66) CB - Kyle Fuller

81) NB - Bryce Callahan

88) NT - Eddie Goldman

100) CB - Prince Amukamara

Here’s what PFF had to say about Mack.


Top 101 appearances: 5

New team, same Mack. The star pass rusher ended the year ranked second among edge defenders with an elite overall grade of 90.7, and despite missing games through injury and despite being game-planned for more than any other edge defender in the league, he still racked up 73 total pressures and six forced fumbles.

Mack was dominant at times in 2018, and with a more aggressive play caller in 2019 (Chuck Pagano), I wonder if Mack will improve on his career high of 15 sacks that he set in 2015.
