Quick Take: Anderson did a bit of everything from the second level over the weekend, which is little surprise for the state's leading tackler a season ago. He was in on more than a dozen stops, but impressed BamaMag more with what he did in space. He got nimble runners Keith Mixon and Rashad Louie to the ground on routine, performed well in pass coverage and was extremely aggressive through his assignment.

Another in-person trait we saw was his leadership. There's no question who runs the Falcons defense not only from a directional and tactical standpoint, but also from an emotional one. Anderson led by example, vocally and every way in between during a banner night. He exploded to the football without sacrificing his assignment and continued to flex as one of the most sure tacklers in the South.

Anderson is wearing No. 9 in white in the video below.
