- Anderson’s play on tape dictates a position move from DE to ILB.
- His projection to ILB provides excellent size for the position.
- The move to ILB will benefit his performance by limiting the need to cover more areas of space. Primarily operating between the hashes versus the run and pass.
- He would have more freedom to roam without immediately taking on blockers. Freeing him up and allowing his instincts to take him to the ball.
- Being utilized as an inside blitzer at ILB would only enhance his value. His strong stature would be ideal for shooting the gaps from a short distance disrupting rush lanes, and making a path to the QB.
- As a run-stopper his history displays the ability to be strong against the run. Stout at the point of attack and taking on blockers before seeking ball carriers.
- As a pass defender his responsibilities would be limited to playing inside the interior of the field. Limiting his exposure in space.
- Lacks ideal size, overall athleticism needed, and elite hand technique to be considered an elite DE prospect projecting to the NFL.
- Too often loses track of locating the ball.
- Needs a more consistent motor throughout plays. Too often he looks lethargic in his movement along the field.
- Needs to disengage from blockers quicker. Too often at DE he gets engulfed by blockers and taken out of plays.
- When isolated in space has difficulty breaking down on tackles. At ILB he’ll have more time to examine plays and utilize
- pursuit angles to alleviate this issue.
