He fits the mold of the Trifecta. Slow at the combine (6.57) though, and lacked quickness in agility tests. Projected to go 3-4, but I see late 5 to 6. He also played at a small school, and the Trifecta likes large DI schools.

Wow!!!!! I don't know where you are getting your info from but it is way, way off.

He was,is, and will be extremely fast,agile, and explosive; and will probably go in the 2nd but will not get past the 3rd.

His potential to start as a DB is very real, and his obvious elite abilities as a returner will put his stock over the top.

There is no way he slides on draft day.

That may have been his 3-cone time at his pro day. Which, by the way, is outstanding.

Owusu-Ansah maybe a small school prospect, but there's nothing small about his game.
IUP Athletics
Scout.com has learned that Owusu-Ansah will visit the Dallas Cowboys (http://dal.scout.com/) and Miami Dolphins (http://mia.scout.com/) this week, and both teams are interested in playing the 6-foot, 207-pound defensive back at free safety.
The Cowboys are looking for a playmaker in their secondary to challenge hard-hitting safety Ken Hamlin (http://chi.scout.com/a.z?s=25&p=8&c=1&nid=4354158) as the teamís starting free safety. Hamlin brings an intimidating presence to the field, but heís limited in coverage and has poor ball skills; Owusu-Ansah would be a huge upgrade over Hamlin. As far as the Dolphins, they decided to cut ties with over-priced 2008 free agent signee Gibril Wilson this offseason, and theyíre taking an aggressive approach in their search for a safety option in the draft. The Dolphins have expressed interest in at least a handful of safeties this offseason, including Georgia (http://georgia.scout.com/)ís Reshad Jones (http://chi.scout.com/a.z?s=25&p=8&c=1&nid=4396480), who Scout.com (http://mia.scout.com/2/953606.html) reported three weeks ago would visit the Dolphins on March 29th and 30th (http://mia.scout.com/2/953606.html).
Even though Owusu-Ansah is listed as a cornerback, in college he basically served as the teamís free safety. At IUP, the defensive structure calls for a lot of two-deep coverage where Owusu-Ansah played field corner, which requires him to function as a free safety. But at IUP, the linebackers and safeties amassed most of the tackles - thatís why Owusu-Ansah, who was the last line of defense, didnít record many tackles during his career; he had 14 tackles in 2008 and 27 this past year. Owusu-Ansah is a physical player and will be a dynamic player at the next level; donít let his lack of tackles alter your view of him as a prospect.
During his career, Owusu-Ansah dominated the competition at the Division II level and generated some impressive statistics during his two-year stint as a starter; intercepting 10 passes (eight of them came during the 2008 season) and totaling nine touchdowns (four on punt returns, three on kickoffs, one on an interception and another returning a fumble) in his career. This past year, Owusu-Ansah scored five (three on punt returns and two on kickoffs) of his nine career touchdowns and was one of the most electric return specialists on any level in the nation.
For his efforts this past year, Owusu-Ansah received an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game, but was unable to participate due to a shoulder injury he suffered in the season finale. But, he didnít miss his opportunity to shine in front of scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine, and at that forum he showcased his talents. Owusu-Ansah ran a 4.32 in the 40, posted a 35.5-inch vertical and a 10-foot broad jump; he didnít bench in Indianapolis, because his shoulder wasnít 100-percent.
On March 12th, Owusu-Ansah participated in the Ohio State (http://ohiostate.scout.com/) Pro Day and continued to wow scouts with his natural ability. Surprisingly, he decided to run the 40 again and turned in another stellar time of 4.33, but scouts were shocked when he decided to participate in the bench press. With an injured shoulder, Owusu-Ansah put up 225 pounds 21 times and exceeded NFL personnelís expectations. Shortly after the OSU Pro Day, it was revealed that Owusu-Ansah had a labrum tear in his shoulder, which he had surgery on two weeks ago.
Despite having surgery on his shoulder, Owusu-Ansah could ultimately be selected in the second round. The team that drafts him understands that he wonít be ready for mini-camp after the draft, but he will be 100-percent by training camp this summer. Owusu-Ansah is currently the 9th rated cornerback listed on Scout.com (http://profootball.scout.com/a.z?s=127&p=9&c=12&nid=83&lnid=124&yr=2010)ís 2010 NFL Draft Rankings (http://profootball.scout.com/a.z?s=127&p=9&c=12&nid=83&lnid=124&yr=2010).http://chi.scout.com/2/958067.html
