Ezekiel Ansah

BYU

The most accidental soon-to-be first round pick, Ansah tried out of BYU's basketball team in 2008 and 2009, didn't make it, briefly joined the track team and then joined the football team in 2010 despite fearing the violence of the sport. Now he's the best defensive end available after compiling 62 tackles and 13 tackles for loss in 2012 and showing tremendous upside at the Senior Bowl. Ansah has a great build and speed and sheds blockers with ease. His technique isn't fully there yet, and he has some stamina issues, but those are fixable problems.
