Derek Anderson School: Oregon State
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 242 40: 5.06 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter and second team All-
Conference choice as a senior after passing
numbers of 54.2%/3,615/29/17. Junior totals
included 51.2%/4,058/24/24, when he set a
school record for passing yards.
strong pocket passer with a live arm. Patient
when given time, waits for receivers to come
free, then tosses the ball. Leads receivers over
the middle, gets the ball downfield and displays
solid long accuracy. Puts air under the deep
throw letting receivers run to the ball.
Stares down intended targets from the get-go,
and slow going to secondary receivers. Tends
to direct his passes. Makes poor reads, shaky
under pressure and seemingly predetermines
where he will throw the ball, no matter if it's into
triple or double coverage.
Analysis: A passer
with the physical skills to play at the next level,
Anderson made strides as a senior, lessening
the errant throws.
