Matt Ryan on Khalil Mack: ‘I think his talent, his skill level is as good as anybody’

Oakland Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack has been quickly gaining the attention of the NFL as one of the premier defensive players and Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan added more comments to bolster that claim.

“I think his talent, his skill level is as good as anybody, but he’s got the combination of really high-end talent, and an unbelievable motor. You’re going to see him every snap, he gets after it every snap, and he’s relentless whether it’s run or pass.

To me that makes him one of the more difficult guys to go against because some guys are really good pass rush guys, but maybe not as good against the run. Some guys are really stout against the run, maybe not the pass rush. He’s one of the few combination type of guys that can really do both extremely well, and he plays hard,” Ryan said, via Raiders.com.
