BYU star says there is more to his game than just getting to the Quarterback.
Ghanaian Ziggy Ansah has insisted that there is more to his game than just being a situational pass rusher, and that he can contribute on defence in a number of ways.
Considered a raw talent, yet with so much upside that he will likely be taken in side the top 15, Ansah has had his critics about the limitations of his play, however when he spoke to the Detroitfreepress, he said he had much more to offer than straight up blitzing.
“I think I can fit anywhere, it don’t matter.” Ansah said.
“Play head up on a tackle and stop the run, play outside (in a five technique) or rush the quarterback from a nine. It just depends on the team I’m going to be on and how they want to use me.”
Ansah is certainly saying all the right stuff as team’s continue to evaluate how they could use him as part of their 2013 defence.
He has been drawing interest from a number of teams in, especially the New York Jets, who recently have been linked with almost everyone, such are the amount of players they need to draft this year.
With some NFL coaching and plenty of playing time, Ansah will become a big physical force in the NFL, and can see plenty of Pro Bowl appearances coming his way.
