But let’s not forget the other rookie who is having a major impact through three NFL games.
Defensive end Ziggy Ansah, the fifth overall pick in the draft, was regarded as a JPP-style project. The Giants defensive end, however, didn’t have a sack until Week 12 of his rookie year. Ansah has made an impact right away.
He’s had 2.5 sacks in three games. Another was nullified by a penalty committed by a teammate.
Ansah has shown an amazing closing burst, using his long frame to dive at the right moment and finish plays. He’ll be a handful for Bears left tackle Jermon Bushrod, as much or more of a handful than Suh will be for Long.
