The Detroit Lions recently released a highlight reel for former BYU standout Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah's rookie season.
Detroit took Ansah with the fifth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and the ex-Cougar did not disappoint, finishing his rookie year with eight sacks in 14 games and two forced fumbles.
He was named Mel Farr Rookie of the Year, as the Lions' top rookie of 2013, and made profootballfocus.com's All-Rookie Team earlier this month.
"Prior to the season we felt Ansah might get pushed around in the running game but make up for that with his ability to get pressure," wrote Neil Hornsby of profootballfocus.com. "As it transpired, it was the other way around with the first-rounder doing a solid job holding his edge but being flattered by his sack numbers; his nine being accompanied by only 25 other hits or hurries."
