Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A 6-foot-1, 205-pound four-star recruit out of Katy, Texas, Anderson bulked up to 224 at Oklahoma and was extremely productive when healthy, finishing his career with 200 carries for 1,285 yards and 16 touchdowns along with 17 catches for 281 yards and five scores. However, he played just 17 career games, missing all but two in 2015 (broken leg), the entire 2016 campaign (fractured vertebrae) and all but two in 2018 (torn ACL).

ANALYSIS

On the field, Anderson looks like a borderline first-round talent. He moves pretty well for his size, with adequate speed, short-area burst and fluidity. He's powerful, with good contact balance and the ability to surge through defenders for extra yardage, and shows good vision, instincts and feel for rush lanes. He's also been an explosive receiver (16.5 yards per catch) with natural hands and comfort adjusting to the ball.

But in four years at Oklahoma, Anderson made it through only one healthy season (2017), with three serious injuries in that time frame. He is still rehabbing a torn ACL suffered in September and did not participate at the NFL Scouting Combine. He also lacks top-end speed and elusiveness and is an unreliable blocker at this point. Anderson carries a definite boom-or-bust tag.

Projection: Fifth Round
