Ezekial Ansah goes fifth overall to Lions
|04.25.13 at 8:52 pm ET|
The Lions took a big gamble with the fifth overall pick, selecting pass-rushing project Ezekial Ansah out of BYU.
Ansah, who comes from Ghana, is a very raw and athletic prospect. He has only been playing football since 2010 after not making the basketball team. His production was limited in his first two seasons (just 10 tackles), but he had 4.5 sacks in 13 games last season.
