He may not have been a member of the Minnesota Vikings for very long, but Yannick Ngakoue is a player who has shown to be capable of getting after opposing quarterbacks when given opportunities.

Ngakoue played in six games for the Vikings in 2020 but is better known for his time with the Jacksonville Jaguars where he totaled 37.5 sacks in his first four seasons as well as his 2021 season with the Las Vegas Raiders where he had ten sacks.

Last season, the 27-year-old pass rusher had nine and a half sacks in 15 games played, showing he still has plenty of gas left in his tank for any team looking for a defender to put pressure on enemy passing attacks.

A team can never have enough quality pass rushers. If he is not signed by the 2023 NFL Draft, a squad that misses out on a high-potential edge player will likely scoop him up to be a starter for the upcoming season.
