2013 NFL Draft: Scheduled Pro Days for March 28

USA TODAY Sports

We take a look a a couple prospects competing today including BYU's Ziggy Ansah.

Today's pro days include: BYU, Central Arkansas, Coastal Carolina, East Carolina, Louisiana-Lafayette, Sam Houston State and Yale.

There are not too many draftable prospects competing today, but here are a couple to watch for:

Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU: There is no questioning Ansah's athleticism. At 6-5, 271lbs, Ansah posted a very respectable 4.63 forty at the combine in February to go along with at 34.5" vertical and a very impressive 4.26 20-yard shuttle time. Remarkably, Ansah has only been playing football since 2010. A workout warrior, he was able to get himself into tremendous shape and bulk up to 270lbs prior to his senior year, the only year he saw significant action at BYU.

Prior to the 2012 season, Ansah played almost exclusively on special teams, amassing 10 total tackles in two years. He finally cracked the starting lineup his senior year and tallied 62 total tackles including 13 for a loss and 4.5 sacks.

Ansah's stock is at an all time high thanks to his athleticism, which scouts love equating to potential. He is still very raw and will need to be groomed at whichever position he ends up playing in the NFL. Ansah played every position along the defensive line and even lined up some at linebacker.

I see him more as a 5-technique end in a 3-4 since his pass rushing skills don't seem to be anything special. I'm not as high on him as some. His inexperience and lack of production would scare me. Although, his unique athleticism and untapped potential make the sky the limit for the future first round pick.

Melvin White, CB, Louisiana-Lafayette: White is a big corner at 6-3,191lbs and a former high school wide receiver/quarterback. White was a two year starter for ULL and had his best season in 2011 when he accounted for 64 tackles, including 8.5 for a loss, and picked off two passes.

The tall, rangy corner doesn't have a fluid back pedal, yet, so a move to safety wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. Given his physical nature and build he figures to project best as a zone corner or free safety. If the 49ers are looking for defensive back depth or just willing to give him a shot as a project, he'd likely be available in the sixth or seventh rounds.
