Anderson was very productive at Alabama, posting 128 tackles, a whopping 39.5 for loss, and 19.0 sacks. He has great size, he also had good speed, he is a hard hitter, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, he is very versatile, as he can lineup at outside linebacker, and defensive end, along with being a solid pass rusher. He has had off the field issues in the past, but as long as he has good interviews, plus good workouts, and a good combine, Anderson should be a day 2 pick when it is all said and done.
