NFL.com projects Anderson to be a sixth- or seventh-round selection in this month's draft.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Powerful interior defender with who uses heavy, strong hands and adequate athletic ability to consistently disrupt offensive gameplans. Anderson plays an aggressive, pressing style that often creates early advantages and gives him the ability to recover when he's beaten early in the play. While he faces a step up in competition and may need to add more mass, he has enough talent to become a backup who may be able to handle nose and/or three-technique details."

It may not have happened as soon as the players wanted it to, but it has happened. Kittle's contract talks reportedly weren't as smooth as he might have hoped, Samuel famously scrubbed his social media accounts of all things 49ers, and Bosa didn't sign until a few days
