Football (U.S.)

DE Yannick Ngakoue appears headed for a monster year. The third-year player had one sack, four tackles, and was essentially unblockable at times during the first half of Saturday's game. Ngakoue did negate his sack with a celebration penalty so that's something that he'll have to be careful of going forward, but other than that it was a dominating performance for a player who practices and plays with a massive chip on his shoulder because he wasn't a first-round pick. Ngakoue has 20 career sacks and 10 forced fumbles in two seasons. He had 12 sacks and six forced fumbles last year but was overshadowed a bit by teammate Calais Campbell. That may not be the case in 2018.

Quote of the day from Jaguars practice: Defensive coordinator Todd Wash said he likes what he's seen from first-round pick DT Taven Bryan. “Taven, obviously, is a big, strong young man," Wash said. "He is playing a couple different positions. He is learning as he goes along. We see a real good run defender. He is stout at the point [of attack]. Plays with a good energy. We really like how he runs and gets after the football. We will continue to develop him as a pass rusher. I think he can go outside. He can go inside. We are going to continue to develop him in that aspect." Bryan has gotten reps at both the big end spot (behind Calais Campbell) and at three-technique tackle (behind Malik Jackson) and likely will play both spots in the Jaguars' preseason opener against New Orleans on Thursday at TIAA Bank Field.
