Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll feels that his side will have to be at their best to stop rookie linebacker Khalil Mack in their match against the Oakland Raiders.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has admitted that his side have planned especially for rookie linebacker Khalil Mack ahead of their clash against the Oakland Raiders.

The 23-year-old has had a bright start to his season after being drafted fifth overall in the 2014 Draft out of the Buffalo Bulls.

Although he has struggled to record sacks, Carroll has revealed that he was blown away by Mack's talent after looking at his game on video.

He told reporters: "He jumps off the film. Every one of our coaches, when they break up and start looking at the Raiders and taking seriously what they're doing well, everybody comes back talking about him.

"He's almost unblockable and he's got a great motor. He's fast, he's tough, he's instinctive. We think he's an obvious factor."

The Seahawks hold a 4-3 record going into their clash against the Raiders on Sunday.
