Seems like a terrific bargain if he falls to the second round based on athleticism (at the combine) and production in college. There's a great site http://mockdraftable.com/ that produces some really nice web graphs of players based on how well they did at the combine and the chart for Anderson is pretty impressive:

(ok, I can't get the image link to work but this is the link for the page, seriously, check it out, the guy did really well: http://mockdraftable.com/player/4854/ )

Anderson, compared to other defensive tackles (back to 1999 I believe) was 99th percentile (higher is better) in 20 yard shuttle, 92nd percentile in 2 cone drill, 81st percentile in broad jump and 93rd percentile in 10 yard dash. When compared against defensive ends he's not nearly as impressive (which you'd expect with a guy his size) but he still ranked in the 91st percentile in the 20 yard shuttle.

His production in school was better than Leonard Williams (who played similar competition) and yet Anderson is being talked about like a third round or later guy. Why isn't this guy a potential first round pick? I mean, based on his combine and performance on the field this guy should easily be going in the first round.
