NO ones ceiling is higher the Ansah's. If he reaches his potential he'll be the BEST DE from this class. And I don't think it will be close. At this point I like him better then Werner. Which means I think he's the best 4-3 DE draft prospect PERIOD.
Going to disagree with your opinion.Werner hasn't been playing as long as Ansah
and IMO his ceiling is higher than Ansah's. Not too mention Werner has a mean and nasty streak in him that I don't see in many other players.
Ansah didn't EVER play American football until late 2009. Didn't even know it existed until 2008 when he moved here from Ghana Africa. He literally played his first game of football ever.. in COLLEGE. And not even his freshmen year.
Werner has been playing football since HIGHSCHOOL.. Even in Germany before transferring. Since 2006. Werner has been playing TWICE as long as Ansah.
So yes Werner has more experience. Is not even close to the athlete that Ansah is. So I'm not sure how you think Werners ceiling is higher.
Not to mention. Anyone actually watch the senior bowl? Ansah was the best player on the field. Won defensive honors for a reason. He'll probably run close to a full second faster then Werner. He could POTENTIALLY run a 4.6 FLAT. At 6'5 270+ lbs. THAT IS INSANE. 7 ft. Wing Span. Potentially faster then our athletic QB by a half second. Wowza. Think Jevon Kearse in terms of athletic prowess.
I've got a man crush on the guy. If he or Werner isn't there at 12. Go Patterson. Or trade back if Patterson is gone. Because all your playmakers are gone. And there isn't much difference at 12 when there are no playmakers left.. then there is at 25 (Particularly in this kind of deep draft with VERY limited playmakers). Get an extra 2nd rounder. Or another 1st rounder next year.
As JMP pointed out. The fact that they used this guy at NT is just idiotic. This going is going to RAVAGE QB's for years. And he's got the length power and speed to maintain the run. ESPECIALLY once he has some pro coaching. And a year or 2 under his belt. Don't get me wrong. I expect him to produce immediately. Just not hit his ceiling for a couple years.
And here is another game. Where he looks unstoppable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=GEe ... =endscreen
