ALLEN PARK — Lions’ first-round draft pick Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah has arrived in Detroit from New York.
He met with Lions officials as he stepped out of a white limousine at the Detroit Lions practice facility. (He’s shown taking to Lions president Tom Lewand in the photo.)
Ansah played at BYU after arriving in Provo, Utah, on an academic scholarship. He’s from Ghana where the average annual income is $1,240 according to worldvision.org.
A year ago, Justin Blackmon was the NFL draft's fifth overall pick and signed a four-year $18.5 million contract.
Ansah will have a press conference at 4 p.m. He’ll appear at the Lions Fan Fest at Ford Field about 6 p.m. Friday.
