The Plain Dealer has a nice article in the paper this morning on DT Haloti Ngata, one of the players the Browns could be selecting in next week's draft. The article discusses the hardships faced by Ngata throughout his life.
- Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Name: Haloti Ngata
Weight: 338 lbs.
Position: Nose Tackle
Ngata us the complete package when it comes to a team searching for a future franchise defensive tackle. He has great size at 6'5", 338 pounds, strength, and athleticism. His reaction when the ball is snapped is great, and was often able to get the first step on an offensive lineman in college. His strength allowed him to simply push the offensive lineman back towards the quarterback. He is quick enough to catch most of the average running quarterbacks and will not let them slip away from him once he has a hand on them. Ngata will draw the double team more times than not. He is very smart and has very few problems when it comes to playing football.
