Draft Rewind 2013 – Ezekiel Ansah – Detroit Lions

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about EZEKIEL ANSAH: BYU, 6052 274 4.63. One-year starter whose football career is all ahead of him. A raw but talented and disruptive high effort athlete who finishes long pursuit. Long arms and big hands to control a blocker. Struggled all week during Senior Bowl practices, but when Saturday came, he jumped out of the phone booth with his cape on. An ascending, hungry player who can turn it loose. From Accra, Ghana. Started playing football in 2010 after trying basketball and track at BYU. Will get manhandled at times because he is technique deficient. Needs to develop more upper and lower body strength to take on blocks and stop the run. A big athletic man who can change direction and stack a double team if he keeps his hands inside on the breast plate. Was not even a starter at the beginning of the 2012 season. The two previous years he collected a total of 10 tackles. One year of production. A high risk, high reward player. If he is lined up outside in the wide nine scheme and told to “sic’em” you may have a great player. If his head is filled with technique, checks and adjustments, and other football minutia, draft dividends won’t be cashed in for 3-4 years. 2012 stats: 62 T, 13 TFL, 4.5 sacks, 9 BB, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.12, right 2.18. OSR:5/23. First round. (A-35 1/8, H-10 1/4, BP-21, 10-1.63). CAMP NOTES: Ezekiel Ansah is counted on to start at right end and bring a pass rushing presence to an aggressive four man front. He is a work in progress with only nine college starts and just three years of playing football. Of the seven defensive ends, four are rookies. Ansah’s job will be to attack the quarterback. Don’t read, just get up the field.
