Ngata landed on a good team where his only job is to take on double teams.
Positives: Has a tall, massive frame with thick upper body muscle, a very big bubble, long legs and arms, large hands and a sudden burst coming off the snap
Shocks blockers back with his strength and quickness coming out of his stance, creating an advantage that he will retain
Needs to play lower in his pads, but he sinks his hips, generates a heavy anchor and consistently holds his ground at the point of attack
Very quick and strong with his hands, as he discards blocks almost immediately
Plays with good leverage to be dominant in a two-gap system (can stall double-team action)
Can recover and create a pile or split double teams
Has excellent balance and is rarely off his feet (except sometimes when he over-pursues from the backside)
Sure tackler who can either drag down or collide and wrap
Physical striker in tight quarters. Negatives: Sometimes gets too top-heavy, as he will lunge and over-pursue, especially when coming from the backside
Has outstanding hand strength, but needs to do a better job of using them to protect his feet from low blocks
Not the most instinctive player on the field and sometimes struggles to locate the ball
Lacks an array of pass rush moves and is best when utilized as a bull rusher due to his strong base and quick burst
Can be late diagnosing schemes
Tends to wear down late in games and despite his speed, he will tire when having to run long distances. Ngata is a big, physical athlete with a thick, hard body, long arms, big bubble and hands. He is a rare-sized defender who is not only light on his feet, but also possesses very impressive strength. He shows a fluid running stride and a good feel for leverage and balance. His straight-line charge is explosive and he generates a bone-jarring hand punch coming off the snap. Ngata's is a disruptive force who commands constant double teams. He can be sudden charging from the backside and shocks blockers back on their heels with his quickness and strength. He holds his ground firmly at the point of attack, but will struggle to disengage when he gets high in his stance, letting blockers attack his body. He plays with a good motor, but does run out of gas late in games. He is best served playing in-line, where he can handle multiple blockers to free up his edge rushers and blitzers. When Ngata plays at a proper pad level, he shows excellent tools for the two-gap system. He uses his hands effectively, but needs to do a better job of protecting his legs from low blocks (both of his knee injuries came vs. low blocks). Even when his pad level is high, he has the ability to set, anchor and hold ground at the point of attack. He is also active with his hands to discard blocks. As dominant as he can be taking out the trash, he is really not a great pass rusher. He is late at times locating the quarterback in backside pursuit and lacks an array of pass rush moves to get an edge on the offensive guard. However, he shows good force as a bull rusher shooting the gaps and gets a good push when he sees a free lane. When he spots the ball, he is capable of getting off his blocks and closing on the play. Ngata is not effective when used in long pursuit, as he will tire running distances. He has the body control to change direction working down the line, but is more effective when used in containment rather than in pursuit. He can collide and wrap with effectiveness and is a physical striker in closed quarters, tossing blockers around while showing urgency to make the play. As a pass rusher, he gets some push, but does not generate a quick swim move. As a bull rusher, he simply destroys offensive guards and centers in his path. He can mash the pocket with good power, but even with his timed speed, he will labor when having to chase into the second level. He keeps his feet moving through traffic in attempts to penetrate and shows natural hand usage to defeat combo blocks. However, he can get a bit top heavy, resulting in him lunging and overextending at times (mostly in backside pursuit). Ngata is much stronger and physical than Ted Washington, but like Washington, he is best when asked to bull rush or take on multiple blockers. He will never generate gaudy statistics, but his presence on the field will allow other linemen to not worry about double-team action to make the play. His knee injuries are a concern, but considering he will mostly serve as an anchor in the middle of the field, few teams will let that weigh in their draft factor. In a two-gap system, he could dominate immediately.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
Now Ngata = Hunt? Wow....

Alfred morris slipped to the 7 round why?
If you work hard enough...you can convince yourself of anything.Now Ngata = Hunt? Wow....
Chase I do agree with BucDaFackUp. Margus may bust or he can go on to bust it up in the nfl. He is just one player. I guess my point is no one truly knows unless your drafting dan marino.
