Scouting Report on Marquis Anderson

by Barry Every - 06/02/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Has the perfect body style to be a hybrid strongside defensive end/defensive tackle. He is built like 2010 Oklahoma signee Eric Humphrey.
Needs Improvement: Will need to add about 25-30 pounds of muscle mass to play inside at the next level. Anderson could use a little more size in the lower body to help anchor him down and defend against the run.
Most Impressive: Comes off the ball low and quick while shooting his hands out fast. He keeps offensive linemen off his body. Anderson also has excellent lateral movement, giving him the ability to run sideline to sideline. He will also be an interior pass-rushing threat.
Conclusion: Could start out playing some defensive end at the next level as he grows into his frame and the defensive tackle position. He has the tools and the athletic ability to become an all-conference performer.
