But he's not a 3-4 DE, he's legitimately undersized. Hunt is only slightly undersized (277 lbs to Ansah's 271) but he is amazingly strong (38 reps to Ansah's 21). Plus their skill sets are different. Hunt has a history along the interior line, Ansah's an end.
Gotta love Ansah's arm length (35+"). I think he's a safe pick for passrusher.
Ansah was 274 and could easily put on a little weight. He also played all over the line at BYU--including nose tackle, if you can believe that.
He has the strength to hold up at the line and is apparently good against the run.
I think he is a freak, and when paired with Tamba and Houston creates nighmarish (for other teams) possibilities if we really switch to an attacking D.
