In my opinion these are the two best prospects in this draft with two pretty good stories on how they got here.
Ansah is from Ghana, did not know what american football was and had to have someone show him how to put his shoulder pads on. Jordan was a Tight End when he went to Oregon made the switch to DE/LB and has been dominant ever since.
Let us start with Ziggy Ansah. In 2012 for BYU Ansah had 60 tackles and 4.5 sacks. He has NFL prototype size, had a great combine, and continues to impress with his work ethic. Ansah's biggest downfall is his short time of playing this game. He is still learning the in's and out's of football, it may take a couple years for him to produce.
Ansah's Grade: A-
Dion Jordan...what can I say? He has the wingspan of NBA Center, hes fast, Pursues the QB very effective, and can stop the run with ease. In 2012 Dion Jordan had 5 sacks and 44 tackles that is with missing two games. Jordan does not have that much downside to him, but if i have to say something I would probably be more consistent through the game.
Jordan's Grade: A
I gave the slight edge to Jordan on this one I am impressed with his work ethic, ability, and his toughness. It was close Ansah is no slouch and i feel will be great in the NFL. I have Dion Jordan going to the Raiders and Ansah to the Jets.
