The string of top pick failures for us needs to end with Mack. The bust list of top 10 picks isn't all RMs fault but it's probably the most critical part of his job. Unless DJ Hayden makes a miraculous recovery in health and performance or M Watson goes to the pro bowl as a RT I can't see RMs career being worth much with out a solid performance from Mack.
I hear ya. At least in this draft the Raiders let the players fall to them rather than reaching. Regarding Mack, I looked at a bunch of linebackers taken in the first 10 picks of the draft and the only one who was a bust was - guess- Rolando McClain. McClain was also not a reach. But if Mack gets injured or is a bust, I think Mark Davis has to look at it as Reggie just having a black cloud over his head.
