Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU Cougars (6-6, 270 pounds)

The Lions take a risky chance with their selection of Ziggy Ansah.  Having started only nine games during his career at BYU, Ansah still has remarkable physical talent.  With great height, long arms and natural explosiveness, Ansah can jolt and drive pass blockers back into the quarterback's lap.  He needs to improve his technique and pass rush moves, but his talent level is almost unparalleled.
