BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who led Nevada in tackles last season posting 68/1/3. Junior numbers included 62 tackles.

POSITIVES: Anyanwyu has been a solid player the past two years, showing progress in his game. His speed is a limiting factor, yet his size and ability against the run is enticing. He could be effective in a zone system, and he offers potential as a special teams player.

NEGATIVES: Lacks a quick burst to the action and usually a half step late arriving on the scene. Marginal ball skills and ability in coverage.

ANALYSIS: Nice-sized defensive back who chases hard to defend the run. Moves well to the sidelines, keeps the action in front of him and disciplined with assignments. Works well with cornerbacks and displays a sense of timing in coverage. Quick up the field, strong at the point and forceful against the run.

PROJECTION: FA
