Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU

Brigham Young University's Ezekiel Ansah had big shoes to fill with his namesake and he probably has that covered physically. Ansah is a huge prospect who will pass the eyeball test with no problems and matches that with elite athletic upside.

Ansah is originally from Ghana and had never played football in his life prior to 2010. Naturally this means he is a project and will need time to be groomed. Luckily for him, his physical tools are so obvious that he may start in his first game as a rookie.

Versatile athlete that can play all over the field with a knack for pass-rushing. Violent short burst, sharp change of direction, flexible in bending the corner. Good strength, but lacks a thick base given his long frame.

Not a great run defender since he can be pushed back. May begin his career as a pass-rush specialist only. His long arms can initiate contact and hold ground. Lack of lower half power can be driven off the ball. Didn't look great in Senior Bowl practices but played great once the game began.

Ansah is a natural athlete that brings an outstanding effort and rarely seen, almost unheard of high ceiling to the table. He projects as a first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft with the potential to go in the Top 10.
