08:00 AM ET 02.19 | Just how high will BYU defensive lineman Ezekial "Ziggy" Ansah rise? To hear Senior Bowl Executive Director and former longtime NFL scout and executive Phil Savage talk about Ansah, the top 10 appears to be a sure thing heading into the NFL Scouting Combine. "I'm thinking that maybe even the top five." ... At 6-foot-5, 274 pounds and a wingspan of nearly seven feet, he runs like a track athlete. That's what Ansah did before finding his way to the gridiron. In fact, Ansah did lots of things before getting to football. There was soccer in his native country of Ghana. There was basketball, a sport he loved as he watched his older brother, Elias, play. Ziggy even dreamed of playing at the NBA level after he converted to Mormonism and came to the United States.

Wasn't the same said about Vernon Gholston? Except the Mormon part.

If that's the case - expect the J-E-T-S to jump on this guy.

Oh good. That's perfect for their locker room. I honestly think next years' circus could be more entertaining than last.

Tough act to follow. How can they top the Buttfumble play?

The media and football teams are like crack addicts when it comes to raw athletes like this. There will be a growing media storm over this guy that will create a frenzy to draft him. He's going to go high in the first round.

It will be tough to top that play.

I thought you had to be born into stupidity, I never heard of anyone converting to it.

That play kind of capsulized the way their entire season went.

Some stupid people are self made

He doesn't really look like a DL. Is that why I'm supposed to be impressed?

Mormonism - it's not about religion it is about business. After Ansah makes it to the NFL his agent ( probably a Mormon ) will charge Ansah his fee and both will contribute a tithe to the NON PROFIT ( FALSE PROPHET ) religion of Mormonism. The same as the Catholic Church has their vast network of High Schools that are more about recruiting future athletes than about education. The Catholic church profits in 2 ways, they get to brainwash their students with the falsities of Religion, plus they too will turn out little Christian Football Warriors that will after every TD point to the Sky honoring an imaginary god and go through little religious dances and signings, and then in the post game interview mention as many times as possible in a 1 minute interview; God, Jesus, and of course their immaculate parents.

Mormonism and Catholicism ( and all religions) are using their non profit status to build a quasi- Religion/ Corporation that is TAX EXEMPT. And they are using their Corporation Part to cross the line of "SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE". For all we know Organized Religion could be making large contributions to a local politician through a Super Pac and no one will ever know.

Ya think ?

After Ansah's football career is over he will go back to Ghana where the Mormon Religion will send him on a mission, they will set him up with multiple wives and tell him to start creating a bunch of Mormon Genetic Athletic Mutants that will in 18 years be sent to BYU as part of the FOOTBALL FACTORY, and he doesn't have to worry about taking care of the little Ba$$tards the rejects will be sent to an orphanage and shipped to America where they will be sold through adoption for all those people that would rather adopt foreign babies than the millions of American Babies in Orphanages . Pretty soon there will be a reality show on ESPN called " Mormon Wives ". Or Steve Young in " GETTING THE BALL ROLLING " a story of how Mormon missionaries are nothing more than football scouts in disguise.

Nearly impossible, but the Jets are welcome to try.

Any man who can't see that even one wife may be one too many should be easy to convert to the folly of religion, too.

No drinkin', either, right?

You wonder how they keep their sanity.

To show how hypocritical Mormons are, they admonish people from partaking in the drinking of alcohol, or other vices. Yet they are not against one of their Mormon brothers from starting a business that sells alcohol or even venturing into a business that deals in sinful practices.
