Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 1/5 - Ziggy Ansah, DE, 6-5, 271, BYU...The Lions may have preferred one of the elite offensive tackles, but this is hardly a consolation prize.

So, I love quarterbacks." -- DE Ziggy Ansah on whether he hates quarterbacks. - The Sports Xchange
