Jake Anderson
Position: T
Class:  Sr
School: Akron
HT: 6'5"
WT: 307 lbs.
40 Time: 5.4
Conference: MAC
Biography: Three-year starter at right tackle.

Positives: Large, strong offensive lineman who easily removes defenders from the action. Keeps his feet moving on contact, makes terrific use of body positioning and controls opponents once engaged at the point of attack. Displays good movement skills, can adjust to oncoming defenders and effectively stays square to keep the opponent in front of him. Effective with his hands, anchors at the point and is a smart lineman who keeps his head on a swivel.

Negatives: Overextends and lunges into blocks. Not a natural knee bender. Lacks fluid footwork in pass protection.

Analysis: Anderson has flown under the scouting radar for some time but is an impressive looking blocker who has flashed skill the past three seasons. He offers ability and NFL size which warrants a spot on a practice squad while he continues to develop his game.

Projection: FA
