      Which mock draft? Many had us taking JPP, and sure enough, he was selected. Also, remember some matches with KP and Nicks.

        Ansah is a very interesting prospect - very raw skill - fast and athletic - remind you of someone. Same words used for JPP but JPP was even more freakish. Still this is a very Giants like prospect. You can never have enough pass rushers - would like him to put on some weight. Be interesting to see how he does at combine.

        By the way my draft post got moved yours is probably next. Im not exactly sure why as it seems to be giants related. Waiting for an explanation.

          Eh, I knew that was going to come out. You can paint a similar scenario for multiple prospects which can make a comparison to JPP very misleading. Other than the whole "raw athleticism with little experience" descriptor, they are two very different players in their own ways.

            He seems to be a raw/underdeveloped pass rusher. We need someone who can get pressure not get stonewalled most of the time and play good run d. Tuck can do that already.

              I know what your saying and I get tired of the comparisons too but I gotta be honest When I watch tape of Ansah I can't see a difference between his tape and JPP's. They're practically clones.

                  Penguin as i said similar words but that doesnt mean he is the same at all. Comparisons just sometimes give you an idea of the type of player he could be. But to compare him to a guy progressing like jpp is definitely not always fair.

                  That said if you've seen ziggy what are your thoughts?

                    Not really, it was nearly unanimous that we were going Dan Connor when we took KP.

                      I remember it being about 50/50.

                      Then the Giants passed on Connor in the first AND second rounds. Shows what the mock drafters know.

                          1 thing that we wont know is how these guys interview and the extent of the medicals till after the draft. As hard as i try i still cant come up with all the information

                            Seriously? Ansah didn't have the quickness, burst or chase down speed of JPP at USF. Pierre Paul looked incredibly frenetic on the field [both good and bad]. I don't know how that translates to them being clones.

                            And that's hardly a shot at Ansah nor am I saying he's a bad pick. He is absolutely bullish in strength. He looks like he can be a very good 6T LE in the NFL. But even if he inherits more pass rushing moves, I don't think he'll be an elite rusher off the edge.

                              JPP isnt an elite off the edge rusher either , He has gotten to big. Last year when JPP had 16.5 sacks almost all of them were effort sacks where QB's just held the ball to long.JPP also finished his pressures at an incredible rate. JPP will need to improve his interior pass rushing ability where he will have a quickness advantage against guards if he hopes to ever come close to those sack numbers.
                              Ansah is a lot like Quinton Coples in style of player. In fact Ansah is primarily a 5 tech not the 3-4 OLB that most just assume he is on BYU. I could see a 3-4 team drafting Ansah. What Ansah would bring to the Giants is a fantastic run defender. Pairing up with JPP would go a long way in shutting down the run games on the edges. Ansahs non stop motor and length would also help in defending the screen and short passing attacks. Ansah took a lot of snaps inside this season. When the Giants defense was at its best Justin Tuck was a disruptive force as a pass rusher at Tackle. Ansah would possibly give that back to the giants.
                              I do agree Ansah isnt an elite edge rushing type and I think that would still be a need. Giants could get creative with that. They could find an elite blitzing LB or an undersized situational end.
