Position: Defensive end, Defensive Tackle, Outside Linebacker
Size: 6'6'', 270 lbs
Player Summary: James Christensen of NEPatriotsDraft.com wrote in a recent mock draft that " [Ezekiel] Ansah is quite possibly the closest thing to Jason Pierre-Paul in the 2013 NFL Draft."
This guy is a force on the defensive line with some relentless pass-rushing skills. He can rush from defensive end, defensive tackle or outside linebacker.
He's an athletic freak with terrific burst and extremely long arms. Like many viewed Chandler Jones, Ansah may be a bit of a project, but his ceiling seems limitless at this point.
Why he's a fit: The Patriots need more interior push on their defensive line, and they would probably love to have another potentially elite pass-rusher opposite Jones.
However, with limited resources in April's draft, the Pats are unlikely to come away with both players.
It may be wise for the Patriots to draft an elite athlete like Ansah who can play multiple positions in the front seven.
If Bill Belichick had a magical NFL player-making machine in which he could create the perfect defensive lineman, the end product would probably look a lot like Ansah.
