Position: Class:
5Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-10, 190
40 Time:
4.64

BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included a career-high 129/3/6. Posted 76/4/7 as a junior after 92 tackles during his sophomore campaign.

POSITIVES: Anderson has been a very productive college safety, but he possesses marginal size/ speed numbers as well as ball skills for the next level. He could be used as a traditional strong safety, and he does offer a special teams mentality, which will be his ticket at the next level.

NEGATIVES: Inefficient, takes incorrect angles to the action, and constantly over-pursues the play. Displays marginal sideline-to-sideline range and late getting to the flanks in coverage.

ANALYSIS: Tough run-defending safety, with marginal skills in coverage. Effectively reads the action facing the quarterback, physical, comes up the field and aggressively puts his shoulders into ball carriers. Meets blocks head on, displays a burst of straight-line speed and wraps up tackling.

PROJECTION: FA
