ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders have acquired first-round selections in the 2019 and 2020 NFL Draft via a trade with the Chicago Bears. As part of the trade terms, the Raiders will receive the Bears’ sixth-round selection in next year’s NFL Draft, in addition to a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Raiders have agreed to send the Bears DE Khalil Mack, the team’s second-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft and a 2020 conditional fifth-round pick.

A first-round selection (fifth overall) by the Raiders in the 2014 NFL Draft, Mack started and played in all 64 contests as a Raider. Over his four-year career with the club, he totaled 327 tackles (238 solo), 40.5 sacks, one interception returned for a touchdown, 17 passes defensed, nine forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.

Mack was named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team in 2014 and earned First Team All-Pro selections in two consecutive seasons (2015-16). Additionally, he became the first Raider since 1980 to earn Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2016 and was nominated to three Pro Bowls.
