Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about YANNICK NGAKOUE: Maryland, 6020 252 4.71. Junior entry from Bowie, MD. Two-year starter who holds the Maryland one-year sack record with 13.5. May be drafted as a situational nickel pass rusher. He really struggles to separate from big offensive linemen. Has a quick step up the field, especially from the left side and can flatten down the line of scrimmage. Beat Jack Conklin for a sack in the Michigan State game. The ex-Terp gets bounced around by the blockers. He must beat you on the snap. Exposes himself to cut blocks where he shoots up the field. Lines up in wide-9 and tries to speed rush a tackle up the field. Ngakoue struggles to separate. He gets stuck on the block. Tight ends are more of a match than a big tackle. Will get buried down inside on a slant play. Many times he will stop on contact by the blocker. He needs to develop some counter moves. A developmental pass rusher with a quick first step. 2015 stats: 37 T, 14.5 TFL, 13 sacks. 1 PBU, 7 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 1.91, right 2.16. OSR:15/35 for defensive ends. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/2, H-9 1/2, BP-26, SS-4.50).
