91 days until kickoff: Seth Payne vs. Chris Clemons vs. Yannick Ngakoue

New, comments
Seth Payne #91

With just 91 days until kickoff, let’s debate which No. 91 you’d rather have on the Jacksonville Jaguars — Seth Payne, Chris Clemons, or Yannick Ngakoue?

Seth Payne (1997-2001)

A fourth-round pick by the Jaguars in 1997, Payne didn’t play much in his first two seasons before starting all but two games in his next three seasons with Jacksonville. His 8.5 sacks and 94 tackles in largely three starting seasons with the Jaguars isn’t going to stand out in the box score, but he was a productive player who was a solid addition and versatile enough to play both defensive tackle and defensive end.

Chris Clemons: (2014-2015)

The former undrafted free agent started his career with the injuries, practice squads, and even the 2006 season out of football before catching on with the Oakland Raiders and compiling an eight-sack season. Clemons struggled with the Philadelphia Eagles before excelling in the Seattle Seahawks system, amassing 38 sacks in four years. The Jaguars signed him in 2014, reuniting him with Gus Bradley, but he disappointed as the starting LEO, compiling just 11 sacks in two seasons.

Yannick Ngakoue (2016-Present)

Ngakoue was named to several All-Rookie teams around the league, including that of Mel Kiper, Jr. He was a surprise to most during his rookie year, as he was a third-round project draft pick. He broke the Jaguars’ regular season rookie sack record in recording eight sacks, four forced fumbles, two batted passes, and an interception.
