06:54 AM ET 05.27 | Particularly for Detroit and Ziggy Ansah, the clock is ticking. [Over] the next 100 or so days, before they open the season against the Vikings, the Lions will try to cram as much football into first-round pick [Ansah] as humanly possibly. For now, the lessons are in the beginning stage, with Ansah still trying to master pass-rushing technique three years after he first picked up football and with only nine college starts under his belt. "It's all new to him," coach Jim Schwartz said last week. "We did talk about how Ziggy was an inexperienced player, but he was very instinctive playing things like screens and reverses and some trap blocks and draws and things like that that you would think an inexperienced player would struggle on."
