Brigham Young defensive end Ziggy Ansah will take a pre-draft visit to the Eagles, USA Today‘s Lindsay Jones reported Thursday.
The Eagles hold the N0. 4 overall pick in April’s draft. Ansah figures a defensive end in a 4-3 front and an outside linebacker in 3-4 scheme; the Eagles are reportedly expected to employ 3-4 looks this season.
USA Today also reported that there was some speculation at BYU’s Pro Day Thursday that Ansah might be older than his listed 23 years old. However, USA Today reported that the birth date on his Ghana-issued passport, viewed by the publication, is May 29, 1989.
Ansah will be attending the NFL Draft, a positive sign regarding his stock with teams.
