    Strong Points: Size, length and strength. Competitive. Flashes a good punch. Anchors well because of his size.

    Weak Points: Not a bender -- overextends and falls of blocks. On the ground too much. Winds up with his hands, leaving his chest open. Out of position at left tackle.

    The Way We See It: A graduate transfer from Rice, where he was a three-year starter, Anderson was the Longhorns' starting left tackle last season but lacks the traits to play on the blind side in the NFL. He has the size and strength, but he is a limited athlete who doesn't naturally bend, which too often has him off balance. He has the strength to anchor but doesn't keep good position, bending too much at the waist in pass protection. He just doesn't have the foot quickness and lateral agility to play tackle. His best bet is to move inside to guard and hope he can overcome his deficiencies there. Anderson is a size-strength prospect right now who has a chance to go late in the draft.
