Former BYU defensive lineman Ezekiel Ansah worked out for NFL scouts, coaches and other NFL personnel at the NFL Scouting Combine on Monday in Indianapolis.

"Ziggy" Ansah, who measured in at just over 6-foot-5 and 271 pounds, was one of 53 defensive linemen invited to this year's combine. The Ghana native ran a 4.63 40-yard dash to turn heads at workouts, coming in at No. 6 among all defensive linemen. Of the five players recording times faster than Ansah, only one weighed more than 250 pounds. Ansah's 10-yard split of 1.56 seconds was also among the top defensive line marks.

In the 20-yard shuttle drill, Ansah had the best time among all defensive linemen with 4.26 seconds and finished the three cone drill in 7.11 seconds, good for 10th among the defensive linemen.

Ansah posted a vertical jump of 34.5 inches, tied for No. 7 among defensive lineman. He also recorded a broad jump of 9 feet, 10 inches (118.0 inches) and put up 21 reps on the bench press.
