Defensive end Khalil Mack
Everyone has their Madden teams; whether you're loyal to your hometown crew, or you like to play with the juggernauts, or underdogs, everyone has a go-to. "Madden NFL 18" is set to release later this month, and I assume there won't be a shortage of gamers using the Oakland Raiders, and for good reason.
Sure, the Silver and Black added one of the most recognizable and physical runners in the NFL in Marshawn Lynch this offseason, but he's not the only reason people are drawn to the team. The Raiders have a lot of established veteran talent on the roster, from center Rodney Hudson, to guard Kelechi Osemele, punter Marquette King, and reigning AP Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack.
While those four players obviously all take the field for the same team, there's another thing they have in common. An article was posted recently displaying the top-rated players at every position, and Hudson (90 overall), Osemele (92 overall), King (85 overall), and Mack (97 overall) all rank within the top three for their position.
There's no disputing the fact the Raiders have a core of talented players, but I'll leave it to you to decide if each of these players belong at the top of their respective groups. The team will kick off against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
