Pos: 
Strong, versatile ball carrier who comes off a season-ending knee injury. Displays terrific vision, instincts and short-area quickness. Shows burst through the hole, beats defenders into the open field and picks up big chunks of yardage. Tough to bring down, gets a lot of momentum going and breaks tackles. Displays the ability to cut back against the grain and loses little momentum when he changes direction. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield who adjusts to the errant throw and snatches the ball with his hands.
Neg: 
Can’t turn it on in a single step. Runs with a bit of an upright style. Has a long injury history.
Analysis: 
Anderson possesses the size and skill to be a feature runner at the next level, but he must first past medical exams and then return from the injury that ended his 2018 campaign. He offers big-time potential but also has some major hurdles to overcome.
