Haloti Ngata's Power & Athleticism "Rare Combination"

Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has that rare combination of power and athleticism, at least according to Greg Cosell of ESPN, in a story on Football News Now. He rates Ngata as among the best in the NFL and at 6'4" and 350 pounds, is a run-stuffer and space-eater. Haloti had a career-best 5.5 sacks in 2010, proving he is much more than just a force in stopping the opponent's running game.

He notes that Ngata is entering his free agent yer and knows the Ravens will do whatever they need to retain his services for the foreseeable future, as he is as vital a cog in the team's defense as any other player, including All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis. The Ravens protected their star player by retaining rights to him through placing the Franchise Tag on Haloti, ensuring he would not be going anywhere, at least for the 2011 season, and hope to get him signed to a long-term deal in the meantime.

In Baltimore, most Ravens fans consider #92 the best at what he does in the NFL, as he can clog the middle and stop the run game, rush the opposing QB and get the sack, or even drop back into coverage and chase down receivers and running backs from behind.
