Other posters have made the point that Van Noy had 13 sacks and Ziggy lead the team with 8 QB pressures so although he hasn't had the hard stats, he definitely made a presence. Too bad he won't be there anymore.
    Van Noy had more Sacks because he had more free shots at the QB as a Blitzer. Easier to get to the QB when the guys up front are dealing with the lineman and U have to beat a RB or TE

    Hes not. He is a much stiffer athlete, with less burst. But his long speed might be better.

    Still dont think he will ever be more than an ~8 sack guy. Not that that is poor production, and he already plays the run well, and could be a very good strong side end or 5tech.

    Just not sure he could ever be a premier outside pass rusher. Though when he does find a way to create space and get going, he is capable of getting to the QB awfully quick.

    Tuck wasnt an outside pass rusher either. How many of his sacks went against Guards. His straight speed is good if he gets around the tackle in the B gap he can close on the QB

    Yea, though I do think Tuck has slightly better bend to him. Ansah really just has to learn to use his hands, then develop some moves and counter moves off of them. All he has to do is create a little space so he can use his speed.

    I think he could develop into a very good interior pass rusher, but he has a long way to go. His raw talent wont get him far in the NFL. Has to learn the technique to be effective there.

    Adding Ansah could certainly help the pass rush, but they still need to find a true edge rusher. Undersized situational guy or not, bringing someone on to the field on those long yardage passing downs who can consistently get the edge would make a huge difference on this defense.

    ansah is nowhere near what JPP was coming out of college,,JPP had more playing experience and I believe he was a 2 time junior college all american who put up some gaudy numbers. ansah who has looked good at times, is seeing his draft stock rise not only because of athletic ability, but also because of the comparisons to JPP. ansah as of now is more hype than substance.

    Still think Ansah would fit better in a 3-4 scheme that utilizes smaller defensive ends like the 49ers. He's perfect to play the role of Justin Smith, eating up the guard and OT while the more natural pass rusher gets all the glory and sacks.

    I dont agree with that. Without JPP existing, Ansah is a first round draft pick. Its rare to see that size and movement skills. And it isnt hype with Ansah, he does a tremendous amount of things very well, especially for someone who has not played all that much

    JPP was put in a better situation to get gaudy numbers though. He lined up primarily over the guards and even played some nose. The collegiate careers of the two aren't similar at all and the comparisons just come from the fact they are freakish athletes.

    Sources tell Draft insider Tony Pauline that BYU DL Ezekiel Ansah is a "definite mid-first round choice and should be selected anywhere between picks 14-to-18."

    Pauline continued the train of comparisons between Jason Pierre-Paul and Ansah, writing "teams feel Ansah has the ability to develop into an impact player on the defensive line." The BYU product still needs a defined position after playing along the entire defensive line in college. Expect to hear he is "rising" even more after great workouts at the Combine.

    there is no gaurantee he will progress,,its all speculation,,so as of now he is more hype than substance. nothing his soph and junior years,,only started this year due to injury. and to say this kids stock isnt up partially because of the comparisons to JPP is not accurate. article after article scouts compare him to JPP, JPP is helping this kid make money this draft.
