A lot happened last week for BYU's Ziggy Ansah, graduating from BYU and being selected with the No. 5 overall pick in the NFL Draft. ESPN's Todd McShay said "five years ago, Ezekiel Ansah had never even seen a football game, now he's the 5th pick. Best story of the draft."  

Ziggy is certainly a big story. Ziggy and BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall did many interviews in New York, and Ziggy continuted to be the center of attention meeting with media and fans in Detroit as the top pick of the Lions. We already shared some of the buzz on Ziggy in a previous blog post, but here are a few more photos, stories, videos and interviews worth checking out:
