Round 5 (170): Dres Anderson, Utah WR
There are a lot of red flags in Anderson’s game. He struggled with a chronic case of butterfingers and he doesn’t have much lateral agility. The latter may be even worse than the tape after he tore his meniscus during the 2014 season.
But what you do get from Anderson is a big-play machine. While he doesn’t have the shiftiness, he has the straight-line to speed to run by defenders. One-cut runner is a term typically used for runningbacks, but that is how I would describe Anderson. Once he sticks his foot in the ground and gets going up field, good luck catching him.
He also has the size and body control to adjust and make plays on the ball, a trait needed for a deep threat. If I had to give him an NFL comparison, it would actually be Jermaine Kearse.
