Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 94.40 (All-Pro)

Pro Comparison: Von Miller


A five-star from outside Atlanta, Will Anderson Jr. has been as good as -- and maybe better than -- advertised since arriving in Tuscaloosa. In the last two seasons for the Crimson Tide, he had 98 hurries and 29 sacks, and those numbers underscore how dominant he was, at times. He's the best Alabama defender in the Nick Saban era and possibly the best Alabama defender in school history not named Derrick Thomas.


  • First-step quickness and bend around the edge flashes play after play
  • Surprising power and the ability to win consistently with hands on his way to the QB
  • Comparable to Von Miller in size and twitch; both are around 6-3, 245, which is undersized by NFL edge rusher standards, but they play much bigger than that
  • Great teammate, even better person


  • Made some business decisions in 2022, though it's hard to blame him -- he still played through Alabama's bowl game
  • Can sometimes whiff on arm tackles in space
  • Sometimes there doesn't have to be something wrong with a player -- with Anderson it feels like you're searching for issues that don't really exist

Combine Results:

  • 40-Yard Dash: 4.6 seconds
