FINAL WORD: In a position which saw several valuable veteran players leave, it's very possible that Anderson could see playing time in 2006. Like all young players, he's going to have to play well during fall camp and avoid injury. However, Anderson comes to Athens with all sorts of accolades. He's already big enough to play as a freshman, so the main thing he will have to deal with is the learning curve of playing offensive line in college. As good a coach as Neil Callaway is, he can't get players ready to play by himself – Anderson will have to do a lot of the learning on his own.
