Will the Titans draft Ezekiel Ansah?

New, comments

This is the first in the series of articles where we look at the odds of the Titans drafting a prospect that has been linked to them in various mock drafts around the internet.

Ezekiel Ansah is one of the most talented athletes in this draft. Don't believe me:

That dude can really get after the quarterback. His high side might be Jevon Kearse as a rookie. That could even turn around a Jerry Gray defense in a hurry.

Of course, the problem is he could also be Jammal Anderson (the defensive end, not the running back). That would make a Jerry Gray defense look like, well, a Jerry Gray defense.

If this was Ruston Webster and Mike Munchak's first season, they might pull the trigger on a guy like Ansah, but it would be too much of a risk to take him in a season where it is win or be fired.

I am interested to see where Ziggy ends up going on draft day. My gut feeling is that there will be a team in the top 10 that falls in love with his upside and takes him before the Titans ever get on the clock.
