#5 Overall the Detroit Lions Select…

By PFC Draft Writer David Willemssen @DavidWillemssen

DE Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah

The Lions hopefully find a way to fill in for their loss of Cliff Avril. The defensive line looks scary with Ziggy, Nick Farley, Suh, and Jason Jones. Ziggy was not even a starter going into the season this year at BYU. He has the most potential in this year’s draft and that is why his low production did not scare the Lions away. A player who was looked at to play 34DE 34 OLB or a 43 DE. Ansah showed the Lions, who coached the SR Bowl, that he could learn and apply what he learned quickly. A good pick by the Lions.
