The Pro Football Writers Association has put out their 2014 All Rookie team and there are two Raiders among them -- LB Khalil Mack and DT Justin Ellis.
Mack was taken at 5th overall by the Raiders and was the second defensive player off the board -- Jadeveon Clowney was number one overall. He was a contender for Rookie of the Year but it has been Aaron Donald who has been winning that award from the various publications.
Ellis was the Raiders' fourth round pick and has been getting mentions for his play at nose tackle this season. He took over the starting job this season ahead of incumbent Pat Sims.
