Overview:

Anzalone had a nice career at Florida, where he played in 32 career games, had 75 tackles, 5.0 for loss, and 3.0 sacks. He has good size, he has good speed, is a hard hitter, a tough nosed player, and a sure fire tackler. He also is good in coverage, he has good instincts, is very experienced, and is a run stuffing linebacker. He is not known as a sack specialist, and he had a shoulder injury which cost him all but 2 games in 2015, and he also dealt with a broken forearm in 2016. With that said, I view Anzalone as a early day 3 pick, with a chance to sneak into the end of day 2. I also see him being a key special teams standout, and a rotational player at linebacker.
