Day 28 of the Kansas City Chief's 2013 NFL Draft Spotlight series focuses on BYU defensive player Ziggy Ansah.

Ansah, who had a break out season with BYU in 2012, is widely expected to be a first round pick at this years draft.

The Chiefs currently hold eight picks in the draft, which runs April 25-27, including the first overall pick.

During the offseason, the Chiefs cleaned house replacing both their head coach and general manager. The team has been relatively quiet about who they will select with the top pick.

The Chiefs had six pro bowl selections last season, including four members of the defense. However, by trading for QB Alex Smith during the offseason, there is speculation that Kansas City may choose to draft a defender.
