Will Anderson Jr.
PLAYSTYLE AND SCHEME FIT
PASS GAME ANALYSIS
Anderson is an explosive edge player that combines size, speed, and power to win off the edge. Anderson can play standing up or with his hand in the dirt. He provides three-down versatility as a pass rusher and a run defender. Anderson is not asked to play in pass coverage very often; this is an area he can improve in with more opportunities. Anderson has the athleticism to be a decent pass defender when needed.
RUN GAME ANALYSIS
Anderson is also a strong run defender who does a great job sealing off the edge and making plays in the run game where he can fill, spill or make plays on space.
