Pos: 
Adequate straight-ahead ball carrier who lacks next-level potential. Displays terrific vision, patiently waits for blocks to develop and will pick and choose his spots on the inside. Finds running lanes, uses blocks everywhere on the field and shows some strength in his lower body with the ability to break tackles. Keeps his feet moving, works to keep runs alive and consistently runs north/south. Displays terrific short-area quickness and the ability to bounce around defenders and piles. Remains disciplined with assignments as a blocker.
Neg: 
Runs with a bit of an upright style. Doesn’t create his own yardage. Not a true short-yardage back. Average pass catcher out of the backfield.
Analysis: 
Anderson was solid at the small-school level but lacks the pure speed and quickness to be an NFL back.
