Senior Bowl 2013: Jaguars talk with Ezekiel Ansah

New, comments

The BYU defensive end didn't begin playing football until 2010, but had a breakout season in 2012 and is projected to be a first round pick.

The first day of practices at the 2013 Senior Bowl is in the books and it was a quiet one regarding news of Jaguars interest. While the team will likely speak with most, if not all, the prospects in attendance, only one player was spotted chatting with a Jaguars representative: BYU defensive end Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah, according to Shane Hallam of DraftCountdown.

Ansah, who we called one of the five players to watch on the defensive side of the ball this week, is considered to be a bonafide first round prospect, so to pick him the Jaguars would either have to pull the trigger with the No. 2 overall selection or take him following a trade.

After coming to the United States of America from Ghana, Ansah didn't begin playing football until 2010 and quickly developed into a dominant defensive end, racking up 13 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and an interception in his senior season after recording just 10 tackles in his first two seasons.
