Josiah Bronson and Noa Ngalu
This pairing is fun from the standpoint of we can take a player like Bronson, a sixth-year senior who’s fully developed, and pair him with Ngalu, a redshirt freshman who’s still in the early phases of his development. Ngalu has put on 10 pounds since he arrived on campus, and is on track to become an elite run stuffer a la Greg Gaines if he can continue to add weight in a healthy way. This wouldn’t be the most impactful duo in terms of wreaking havoc while rushing the passer, but they would work wonders on early downs against a power run scheme by simply holding their ground.
It doesn’t matter if all of these pairings come to fruition, or none of them do. The moral of the story here is that the Huskies have the deepest, and arguably the most talented set of defensive tackles in the country, and they’re going to put that on display in 2020.
Note from the editor: The outside linebackers are an equally exciting group, and while I originally wanted to pair the two together, both groups just ooze potential and have so many fun pairings to talk about, I decided to split the two into separate articles. Keep on the lookout for the OLB group, dropping later this week!
