NFL Draft 2013: Ziggy Ansah Could Alter The First Round

According to NFL Network insider Albert Breer, BYU’s Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah apparently is in high demand for Thursday’s 2013 NFL Draft:

The Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly listening to offers which means Ansah could change the face of the first round depending on what team moves up. The Detroit Lions did not work Ansah out individually but the staff did coach him in the Senior Bowl in which he was named the games most outstanding player.

Ansah could be a good fit for that defense that features strong interior defensive linemen in defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley but is lacking a good edge rusher. The questions is whether the Lions organization, notoriously a downtrodden one, can be patient enough to allow Ansah to grow and whether he can handle the criticism that may come from an impatient fanbase.
