How to fix the Falcon's pass rush in 3 easy steps - Yannick Ngakoue

31 posts in this topic

Yannick is not good against the run. In order to negate him from rushing the QB teams will just run the ball to his side.

I rather get Robert Quinn who can do both for cheaper 10-11M.

Bro you're bugging. That dude's like 30. 

Yannick Ngakoue is one of the best young pass rushers in the NFL right now. Period. 

He makes too much sense. Rethink about it.

And he’s still an overall better DE than Yannick.

I never said Yannick is not a good pass rusher, but if team can negate what you do best what’s the point of giving him 17M+

Step 1: trade 16 for YN once JAX franchises him

step 2: no longer have first for Epenesa 

step 3: :sadwave:

For real though, I would be happy to have either of those DEs. Not opposed to trading for YN, especially if it can be done for a 2nd, which is unlikely. He has improved in run defense, but he is overall a subpar run defender. Same can be said for many of these lighter, athletic run pass rusher though, doesn’t mean they don’t impact the game.

EDIT: another thought is work a tag and trade deal out to send Hooper for YN..May need to add a late 2nd or 3rd though. Hooper would be huge for Minshews development

Knowing what you just said..what makes you think Jax is gonna let him just walk away?

I would LOVE to get Clowney and then draft Kinlaw in 1. Takk gets pressure and lined up by those 3 we would have an incredible run and pass defense. 

And I don’t wanna hear Clowney isn’t elite, etc. Not even gonna entertain a reply to it.

add a top DB prospect in 2 and lookout!

Quinn is going t get 16-20 million I suspect.

He played for 9 last season and he’s a year older.

Yeah but he was coming off some down seasons when he signed a prove it deal in DAL if I remember correctly. Had like 4-5 real good years, the 2-3 down years with injuries before bouncing back. He ‘should’ get more after his strong season in DAL. Guessing in the 15-16 range.

we will find out soon. The thing is the day 1 signings are always wayyy overpaid in UFA. Guys like Fowler gonna get $20, Clowney even more.

Chris Odom was just released, wasn't he really good with us, but we just had too many vets ahead of him?  Maybe bring him back for depth?

people who hated on Beasley should not want Yannick Ngakoue because he is way worse against the run than Beasley and would probably get the same amount of sacks

You’re just flat out wrong if you think he and Beasley are equals as pass rushers.

Kinda what I’m thinking. Clowney is elite however staying healthy is a concern but I’d take the risk he’s a dem maniac and wreaks the place.

Maybe so but I don’t believe it. I’d take YN over Bs every day

If so it will be a quiet year for Falcons in FA, moreso than I was hoping for.

No they dont. And even if they did why would they choose the 32 year old over the guy headed into his prime?

And the better players in the league play well in their early 30s (outside rbs)
