» BYU pass rusher Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah was the star of Saturday's weigh-ins. He checked in at 6-foot-5 1/4 and 271 pounds. His length (35 1/8-inch arms) and hand size (10 3/8 inches) were both exceptional. During evaluations in the fall, most scouts listed defensive end as Ansah's best position fit at the next level, but that thought process changed following the Senior Bowl. Several teams that employ the 3-4 defense now feel that he's ideally suited to play outside linebacker.
I understand how people get "awed" by freakish athletes, but I just don't get the Ziggy love affair. If he had played better competition, then maybe I would take a seat on the bandwagon, but he didn't.
Eh. Talent is talent. You don't balk at that.
I know it's a totally different sport and the situations aren't similar overall, but people said similar things about Damian Lillard coming out against lesser competition.
Understood. However, we had the worst defense in history. We need someone that can step in and produce instantly. Also, with limited amount of draft picks, we can't afford to "miss" with our 15th pick, being a team with Super Bowl asperations. Just my opinion.
