Was a three-time first-team all-state selection and a USA Today All-American as a Georgia prep while also participating in basketball and track. Attended Hargrave Military Academy (Va.) for one season in 2006. Enrolled at Georgia in January ’07 and redshirted in the fall. Played in 12 games in ’08, making seven starts at right tackle, and missed the Auburn game with plantar fasciitis. Saw action in all 13 contests in ’09 with five starts at right guard early in the season. Was moved to nose tackle in spring ’10 and played in only one game (one tackle) in the fall before turf toe surgery sidelined him for the season. Was moved back to the offensive line during ’11 spring practice after Trinton Sturdivant tore his right ACL. Anderson made all 14 starts at right tackle in ’11.Positives:
Has outstanding size with a big bubble butt and powerful base. Can control defenders once he is engaged. Has some snap in his hips and flashes power and pop in his hands.Negatives:
Tends to play too upright. Has glaring athletic limitations — labors to redirect in pass protection and get out to the second level. Not urgent. Average eyes and instincts to see and react to the blitz — can be short-circuited by pressure packages. Appeared very heavy in his movement at the Combine and spent too much time on the ground (tripped a number of times). Durability is a concern — has a history of foot injuries.Summary:
Heavy-legged, injury-prone waist bender best with simplified assignments. Sheer size could allow him to fend for a backup job in a power-blocking scheme if he can prove durable.
