Atlanta Falcons center Alex Mack is an irreplaceable football player. Without him the offense just wouldn’t tick. We know that Matt Ryan plays his best football when he’s kept off his back, and Mack plays a huge role in keeping him upright.
Mack isn’t only the best offensive lineman on his team. According to Pro Football Focus, he’s been the fourth best offensive lineman in the league this season:
This year, Mack has yet to surrender a sack, and has just nine total pressures to his name over the season, while maintaining an impressive run blocking performance, as the most complete player at his position. The only thing separating him from Kelce was just how phenomenal Kelce has been in the run game.
