Bears edge rusher Khalil Mack has been ranked as the No. 23 player in the NFL Top 100 for the 2021 season.
Mack, who was PFF’s highest-graded edge rusher in the league last year, led the Bears with 9 sacks in his third season with the team. His total tied for 14th in the NFL and ninth among edge rushers. He also contributed 31 pressures, 16 quarterback hurries and 13 quarterback hits, and he had the fifth-highest run stop win rate among all edge rushers. He was named to his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl for his efforts.
Though falling short of double-digit sacks for the second straight year, Mack still was plenty productive off the edge. Plenty of his value also comes outside of the stat sheet, drawing above-average double-team rates and still having an above-average pass rush win rate by edge rusher standards.
This marks the seventh consecutive appearance on the NFL Top 100 for Mack, as well as his third appearance as a member of Chicago’s roster. Mack is the second Bears player to appear on this year’s list, joining wide receiver Allen Robinson, who holds the No. 87 ranking.
