Scouting Report-Derek Anderson

Scouting Report-Derek Anderson

Full Name: Derek Anderson   School:  Oregon State
Ht: 6-6  Wt: 235  40: 5.01

The Good:   Nice sized pocket passer with an NFL arm. Sets up with solid footwork, finds the open wide out and does a nice job sensing the rush or seeing the blitz. Leads receivers over the middle and relatively accurate between the numbers. Puts touch on throws when required and gives receivers a chance to make the reception.

The Bad:   Starts with poor ball placement, stares down the primary target and makes questionable decisions when pressured. Does not always show great poise and throws the ball off his back foot rather than properly following-through and taking a hit.

The Skinny:   A bit of an enigma, Anderson has been a streaky quarterback with a pattern of inconsistency the past three seasons at Oregon State. Possessing the physical skills to be a player at the next level, he must improve his overall game, yet is worth the risk of a late round choice in next April's draft.
