BIO: Two-year starter awarded Big-12 Academic honors since his junior campaign.
POSITIVES: Quick, explosive blocker with marginal size for the next level. Gets off at the snap, jolts defenders at the point, and is a nasty lineman who stays with blocks. Effectively places his hands into opponents. Blocks with forward lean and anchors at the point. Walls defenders from the action with good body positioning.
NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, not light on his feet and gets straight-legged. Has difficulty finishing and not effective on the second level.
ANALYSIS: Though he does not look the part, Andersen has been a productive lineman the past two seasons and could be an inexpensive backup at the next level.
