Let's talk about his ND game then. Not good. I've only seen 3 games of his thoroughly, and that one seem to spotlight his inexperience.
Understand that I'm not saying he sucks. He's not developed yet, he's got weight to put on his frame, and you're talking about putting him at the most challenging position on defense.
These guys know what they're talking about. Why? Cause it's not Jets fans drunk on OLB-love.
4-3 end, no 3-4 at all.
Not fluid enough for OLB, will not be strong enough for 3-4 DE, not worth the risk beefing a player up like that for a position he might not fit as.
Don't like him as an OLB. I do think he could be a pretty good 3-4 DE if he puts on some weight.
And from a Jets fan..
I don't see how Ansah is a 3-4 anything unless he is impressive as a pass defender and quickness department at the combine (which I don't see happening). I also have concerns with Jordan playing DE in any scheme. He is just too thin and won't anchor well on the line. He needs space.
Really just trying to guage why so many people think he ll be a great 3-4OLB, while hes very athletic from all the tape ive watched (and ive watched A LOT) he looks horrible in space and looks more like A StrongSide LDE for the 4-3 and nothing more.
Have you seen his tape? He lined up more at 34DE and Sometimes NT for them more then OLB, people act like his athleticism will translate to OLB but it wont
