SCOUTING REPORT: FB Deon Anderson
BIO: Senior totals included 23/78/0 on the ground and 14/101/2 receiving. Did not play in '05 after leaving the school with legal and personal issues. Moved into the starting unit as a junior in ‘04.
POS: Hard-working blocker who flashes abilities handling the ball. Quick off the snap, has a burst of speed and accelerates into blocks. Jolts opponents at the point, sealing them from the action and opens holes for running backs. Fluid into pass routes.
NEG: Looks almost lean on the field and does not play like a 250-pound lead blocker. Not a natural pass-catcher.
FINAL: A solid athlete who has displayed flashes of skill at Connecticut, Anderson has the ability to develop into a lead blocker for a West Coast offense. Must sort out his personal issues, which ultimately could keep him from having a career at the next level.
