BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who began his career at the University of Miami. Senior totals included 25/3/1 in nine games after 12/2/1 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Anderson passes the eyeball test, and has the size/speed numbers that warrant a top-100 ranking, yet his play on the field pales in comparison. Anderson will be brought into a camp this summer, yet he must immediately pick up the tempo of his play to have any future at the next level.

NEGATIVES: Has a thin build, pushed off the line, and is a liability in run defense. Struggles getting off blocks once engaged, and easily handled at the point by a single opponent. Has multiple off-the-field issues which will raise red flags. Marginally productive in college.

ANALYSIS: Fluid, athletic prospect who's been a major underachiever on the field. Plays with great quickness, explosion, and balance. Fires off the snap with a quick first step, immediately alters his angle of attack, and makes plays in all directions of the field. Covers a lot of area and displays a closing burst of speed. Fast off the edge and creates problems for quarterbacks up the field.

PROJECTION: FA
