Strong Points

Very instinctive player who is quick to find ball and make plays. Tough and competitive prospect who plays with an aggressive attitude. Adequate size with very good strength and power. Strong at the point and quick to shed, gets to the ball. Strong edge pass rusher with both power and moves. Has a good drop and shows good receiver awareness. Has good ball skills.

Weak Points

Marginal height for the position and looks to have short arms. This was his first year as a starter. Good, not great, long speed for the position.

The Way We See It

A rare fifth-year senior at Alabama. Anderson is a program guy who worked his way into a starting role. Saw significant playing time in 2014 and 2015 and became a starter in 2016, when he tallied 19 tackles for loss. He is an instinctive player with strength and a strong competitive nature. Consistent versus both the pass and run. Has a nice edge pass rush and can use moves or power. Very good pursuit player who takes good angles. Can come in and start for many teams as a rookie and will also be a very good special-teams player.
