That could be true - I haven't watched a lot of him, but when I was watching him vs. ND I could definitely see some JPP qualities. I suppose with his history I'm really only looking to see flashes of potential and not consistency over the course of the season; I don't
expect consistency from Ansah right now. If this was a guy who'd been playing since middle school you'd worry about how he plays on a game-to-game basis, but for a guy who's played for such a short time I think it's alright to just see how he looks in a given moment, because the things you'll be looking for are aggressiveness, speed, athleticism, power, etc. Not so much whether he's getting a sack every game, but more to see if he looks like he's got the goods, because any coach that drafts him is going to have some work to do. In some ways he reminds me of Dontari Poe in that he's not super impressive on his film but offers some things that are really hard to find. I actually like Ansah better than Poe as a DL prospect (obviously different positions) because I feel like he plays with quite a bit of energy and intensity for someone who's a latecomer to the sport. Sometimes these cross-sport athletes just don't look like they're excited to be out there. Think he looks smoother than Margus Hunt. He's definitely one of the big "projects" of this class, but as a ball of clay he's got to be one of the coveted ones.
