With all the pre-Combine training we hear about and all the money agents spend to have their clients ready for the on field testing and positional drills, BYU DE-OLB Ziggy Ansah was the antithesis of preparation for the Combine and it didn’t matter.
According to National Football Post, Ansah did not even train for the Combine and still killed it. Here’s what NFP wrote about the highly regarded BYU pass rusher.
Many people were impressed with Ziggy Ansah’s 4.56 40 yard dash at 271 pounds, and rightfully so. But they would have been more impressed if they knew Ansah didn’t even train for the event. Unlike probably every other player in attendance, Ansah kept going to class and never worked with an outside trainer to prepare for the combine. In fact, the 40 yard dash he ran at the combine was the first of his life, according to his agent Frank Bauer. It should be noted, however, that Ansah did run 100 meter dash and the 200 meters on the Brigham Young track team before he became a football player.
Ansah is seen as a late first or early second-round pick.
