Ansah poised for lights-out workout on Monday

INDIANAPOLIS–Brigham Young’s Ziggy Ansah is arguably the fastest-rising player in this draft class, and he’s poised to crack the top 10 picks should he turn in a lights-out workout on Monday.

“I have a lot to do to catch up with everybody,” Ansah told reporters at the scouting combine on Saturday.

Ansah left Africa to play basketball at BYU. He had never watched an American football game until he arrived at BYU.

“Since basketball didn’t work out, I said go do football,” he said.

Now he’s coming off an MVP performance in the Senior Bowl and he’s being compared to Jason Pierre-Paul. Is Ansah a defensive end or an outside linebacker? That’s the big question that has to be answered.

There’s no question that he’s a rare talent who should excel in the gym-class type workouts that define the combine. Ansah is also an engaging personality who entertained reporters.

When asked who was the best lineman he faced at the Senior Bowl, Ansah said it was the tackle from Oregon State. “I got held a lot in that game and it was never called, so I guess it was him,” he said, drawing a big laugh.

Ansah knows next to nothing about the history of professional football and its legendary names.

“I have no idea who they are, but this is going to be my lilfe so I try to soak it all in,” he said.
