Ngakoue has good size, is a superb athlete, and a disruptive defender. He is also a solid tackler, and a sack machine. He is also always in on every play. On the other hand he does not have the speed that other edge rusher in this years class have. With that said, Ngakoue is likely to go somewhere between late day 2, and early day 3.
