A native of Ghana who ran track at BYU and hadn't even seen an American football game before coming to the U.S., Ansah has the same otherworldly combination of size and athleticism as Pierre-Paul. He has a lot to learn, but Ansah shows impressive versatility for such a raw prospect. He's played nose tackle, defensive end and outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme and has made enormous strides this season. Ansah shows an athlete's flexibility, no one at his size runs like he does, and he seems to improve with every game. -- Todd McShay
