2010 Ravens Season in Review – Defensive Line
NT Haloti Ngata -Before the season even began Ngata started receiving high praise. The terms “best defensive lineman” and “best defensive player” were heard when discussing the Ravens top play-maker up front. For the most part Ngata did not disappoint. He took his game, from an already high level, to the next stratosphere. Ngata improved significantly as a pass rusher, collapsing pockets and often beating double teams. Ngata did seem to slow late in the year with a nagging knee injury, but he was a dominant performer who may not have reached his best yet. The Ravens have already placed the franchise tag on Ngata for the 2011 season, and I am sure they will look to lock him up with a long term deal.
