ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have gotten another look at Ezekiel ``Ziggy'' Ansah.
And the Lions like what they've seeing.
The first-round pick looked very athletic during the first of a three-day minicamp Friday after signing a five-year contract earlier in the day. Detroit's coaching staff spent a week with Ansah at the Senior Bowl in January.
That up-close, extended experience led to the Lions drafting the former BYU standout with the No. 5 overall pick last month.
Ansah says if he thinks about the pressure there is on him, he might makes mistakes on the field. He grew up in Ghana and played soccer, basketball and ran track before putting on football pads for the first time in 2010.
