With the 5th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions selected BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah.

Ansah has drawn comparisons to New York Giants DE Justin Tuck.  Anash is a physical freak with his combination speed, size and athleticism.  His biggest weakness his fatigue, and that he admits.  He also considered very raw.

Ansah should help a Detroit defense that recorded just 34-sacks in 2012, that was towards the bottom at 20th in the league.

Next up in the NFC North is Chicago at #20.
