Summary

Although Ninkovich has yet to post a double digit sack season, he has actually been one of the most valuable defensive ends in the league under balanced scoring systems because of his great tackle numbers. His assists were down in 2014, but he still posted 40+ solo tackles for the fourth time in five years. Ninkovich isn't a traditional DE and doesn't hold up that well at the point of attack, but he is a high effort player with the range to chase down plays all over the field. He's the type of player who you normally draft to be a DE2, but he can sometimes produce like a low-end DE1. (May 21)
