For not playing football until his junior season in college at Brigham Young University, defensive end Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah is slowly climbing up the ranks of the elite in the NFL at his position. Prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft were spotlighted in the ESPN ‘Sports Science’ lab by John Brenkus and his team. The prospects were put through many drills that were assembled to their respective positions.
One prospect in-particular shined bright and that was then BYU defensive end, Ziggy Ansah, who as we all know is a legit beast for our Detroit Lions. He was put through the wringer by Brenkus and really showed the exceptional talent he possessed. Ranked on analyzed lists with the likes of Dwight Freeney and Jason Pierre-Paul, Ziggy showed exactly why the Lions took a chance on him with the fifth overall pick in the draft. Ansah is truly blossoming into one of the best defensive ends in all of football.
