Former Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue was traded to the Minnesota Vikings, and then to the Baltimore Ravens over a three-month span, but the reason the Jaguars fans are so persistent to get Ngakoue to the 2020 Pro Bowl is because the team will receive an upgrade in draft-pick compensation.
The Jaguars would go from a 2021 fifth-rounder to a fourth-rounder as a conditional stipulation of their initial trade with the Vikings in August if the fifth-year defensive end were voted in.
“Vote Yannick Ngakoue to the Pro Bowl so that we get a 4th round pick from Minnesota instead of a 5th! VOTE and make your voice heard,” the Twitter account for the Jaguars-centric blog Big Cat Country tweeted Wednesday, along with a link to the Pro Bowl voting page on NFL.com.
In nine games this season between the Vikings and Ravens, Ngakoue has five sacks and two forced fumbles. The 25-year-old was last a Pro Bowler in 2017 when he had a career-high 12 sacks, to go along with a league-high six forced fumbles for the Jaguars.
