Everyone just wants to compare any longish athletic black pass rusher to Smith. Fact is, Smith played inside a ton at Mizzou, and beat his man alot with a freeze move and using his hands so well. Ansah doesn't have that, although they are similar in size/build. Dion Jordan is nothing like Aldon Smith.
Ziggy needs to learn how to use his arm length better, but the 2 of them have freakishly long arms and strength to go with it that allows them to pull off that freeze move. I agree Jordan is nothing like Smith - he's a better athlete in space but doesn't have his strength or arm length, but Ansah has incredible potential.
