BIO: Three-year starter who posted 31/.5/7 last year after career-best numbers of 55/2/8 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Stout defender in the middle of the line. Gets off the snap with a quick first step, is resilient and stays with the action. Plays with good pad level and occupies several blockers in the middle of the field, allowing linebackers to flow to the action.
NEGATIVES: Marginal pass rusher and rarely makes plays down the line of scrimmage. Suffered concussion problems as a senior.
ANALYSIS: Possessing the body type to be used at nose tackle in the NFL, Anderson must raise his level of play to have any chance of making it.
