Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah:
defensive end, BYU
A freakishly athletic defensive end, more than one NFL player-personnel man has told me they see some Jason Pierre-Paul in Ansah. He’s raw, he’s young and he’s a naturally gifted athlete. I love Ansah’s story.
As a freshman at BYU in 2009, the native of Ghana tried out for the basketball team. He didn’t make it. Then he gave track and field a shot. After seeing football being played, he figured he’d give it a go. Two years after his first sight of American football, Ansah’s a top 10 prospect.
He assured the media he “loves” football, and though he’s incredibly raw, there may be no player in this draft with more potential for stardom. Tennessee’s pass rush and run defense still needs to improve. Desperately. This is a bit of a roll of the dice, but the upside greatly outweighs the risk. Gregg Williams will teach him up quickly and have him playing at his full potential, no doubt.
