02:27 PM ET 04.24 | Former BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is skipping his commencement to attend the 2013 NFL Draft -- and Ansah could hear his name called within the first five picks, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer. Ansah isn't likely to be selected with either of the top two picks. Either Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick -- with Joeckel appearing to be the likely choice for the Chiefs. Jacksonville holds the No. 2 pick and has needs on both sides of the ball. The Jaguars have been linked to a number of prospects, including Fisher, Dion Jordan and Geno Smith, so it seems unlikely that Ansah will be Jacksonville's pick. The Raiders hold the No. 3 pick, and have been linked to former Florida Gators defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. In SB Nation's latest mock draft, Ansah slips all the way to No. 10 -- but that might not be the case on Thursday night. The Detroit Lions, with needs on both sides of the ball, favor Ansah, according to Breer. Detroit holds the No. 4 pick in the draft, and Ansah will almost certainly be available for the Lions at No. 4.

The Eagles have the 4th pick in the draft.

Dumb to skip commencement - he's earned it, and oughta walk. Unfortunately, he's believing all the hype about him. I can see teams scared off by his inexperience (especially against quality teams), and dropping him down pretty far.

Oh, trust me, the Lions WILL be selecting Ziggy with the 5th pick in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. Is it a reach? Yes A smart move? NO

Yet, this is the Lions we are talking about here. You don't take a "project" with the 5th pick, when you have won just 1 playoff game in over 55 years.
