[Mel Kiper had him mocked to the Steelers a month ago... so, looks like Mel knew something.]
He's a freak. He's strong, fast, explosive off the line of scrimmage and has a great first step. However, he's raw. It'll take some time for him to develop into the kind of player he has the potential to be, but when he hits that potential - look out. He needs to improve his technique but I think Butler would coach him up.

He's a similar athlete and freak to JPP, but I'm hesitant to compare anyone to him. JPP coming out of college was an absolute monster. Ansah lacks the production that Pierre had coming out of the collegiate level, but he has a similar upside and ceiling. With the right coaching, he could be a JPP-type player on the outside for us.
