Baltimore Beatdown staff share their thoughts on DE Yannick Ngakoue news
The Baltimore Ravens have announced their trade for Vikings DE Yannick Ngakoue and what better way than to read and respond to feedback from Baltimore Beatdown contributors regarding the recent addition?
Brilliant A Fair Trade for a Title The Ravens add a true passer who has already scored five sacks in six games in 2020, and did so by sending only a third round pick (and a pick fifth round conditional) This is exactly the boost Baltimore needs when it comes to defense Ngakoue is a playmaker and this move solidifies their defense to have a glorious run After all the speculation items it’s finally become reality – Kyle P Barbier
After being linked to the Ravens for a while, Baltimore finally finds a way to team up with Yannick Ngakoue Eric DeCosta once again gets great talent at great value, and Ngakoue will make even better an already powerful Ngakoue defense and Calais Campbell were a formidable duo for the Jaguars in 2017 and are teammates again Both players already have nine sacks combined this season and between them Matthew Judon, Brandon Williams and others the Ravens’ defensive front is loaded.In addition, he’s from the DMV area, which is never a bad bonus – Frank J Platko
Ravens prove they want to win on defense, moving all-in Rich get richer Baltimore defense is already averaging 37 sacks per game, good for third in NFL Ngakoue makes Ravens defense to bulletproof A speed booster with a host of moves to work with, this is a shoulder bag specialist This will allow the Ravens to be even more creative with their other outside linebackers, keep Pernell McPhee cool and do everything While I don’t think they’re done yet, the Ravens appear to be all gone in 2020 They can franchise the Ngakoue tag or revive a third round pick in 2022 if he leaves Unbelievable – Spencer Schultz
For those bemoaning the lack of meaningful or consistent passes (or both), here’s your decision Ngakoue has four sacks so far for the season and will immediately deliver juice to the Baltimore front in a way they don’t currently have – i.e. via a race for speed With Matt Judon and Calais Campbell bringing it in via power and bullrushing, the perfect complement is now being added to Ngakoue, a player that the Ravens have already tried to acquire during the offseason If Derek Wolfe manages to be healthy and settle into the lineup as planned, he and Yannick will add a new element to this already fierce defense as we move into the second half of the season. – Jake Louque
Ngakoue immediately consolidates Baltimore’s defense as the best in the NFL The Ravens struggled to get to QB without a blitz, but the addition of Ngakoue to Calais Campbell, Matthew Judon, Pernell McPhee and Tyus Bowser should contribute greatly to solving this problem Eric DeCosta continues to show he’s all about a Super Bowl after trading for Marcus Peters last year, Campbell this offseason, and now Ngakoue – Dustin Cox
This is exactly what the Ravens need I will say it again Exactly what they need You know how the Steelers have TJ Watt and Bud Dupree wreaking havoc for every offense in every game this season? Now the Ravens have the ability to do just that.The only way to stop the firepower of guys like Mahomes, Big Ben, Josh Allen and frankly any gunslinger the Ravens might face in the playoffs is to put pressure on the QB Now that Calais Campbell makes perfect sense, all I can say is watch out for the Baltimore Ravens.They are all set for a Super Bowl race, and I fully respect Eric DeCosta for acknowledging that there is a problem that needs to be resolved There was no shooting, the Ravens would beat the best teams in the AFC without a game changer like Ngakoue In addition, the compensation for succeeding in this profession is totally absorbable A race to the Super Bowl before the best players of Baltimore entering their contract years is badly needed There’s no better time than now Go get Lombardi – Adrian Charchalis
Yannick Ngakoue is an incredible top force and this for his entire career He has shown countless times that he has an innate ability to force fumbles and put pressure on the quarterback in a real way He has already had a good year so far with the Vikings, with two forced fumbles and five sacks just six games into the season Now he reunites with former teammate Calais Campbell to build what can now only be considered one of the best nfl defensive lines Oh, and he’s only 25 The Ravens may just have landed a player who can stay a very long time – Peter Daubert
It’s surprising to see the Vikings trade Ngakoue less than two months after acquiring him He had five sacks in six games for the Vikings Nonetheless, it’s another great job for Eric DeCosta, who continues to acquire top talent without giving up major assets The Ravens were tied for second in the NFL in sacks total with 22, but the addition of an elite passer in Ngakoue bolsters an already outstanding defense during his four seasons with the Jaguars he’s had 375 sacks The 25-year-old can help the Ravens compete for a Super Bowl this season and be a core team for years to come – Jakob Ashlin
