David Anderson seems to be the forgotten man on this board. I'll admit, I don't know much about him. Looking at his junior year he seems to have some skills and Kubiak obviously thinks he fits the scheme or he wouldn't have drafted him. I never heard how he did in OTAs. Will he be our Brandon Stokley or will he get cut and have to hope for the taxi squad?

Friend of the Kubiak family for sure. That can't hurt.

Has 4.55 speed in the 40 but wont blow pass people more of a route-running skill player.(s. largent type IMO)Info from Profootball Weekly 2006 preview

I've watched him play several times mainly because I like C states RB Kyle Bell. Anderson will be a good player probably special teams but possibly move up. Great hands and will crack back harder than anyone I've ever seen. He's fearless and pretty stout for his height. Not a breakaway guy but extremely shifty good with the ball in his hands and if it's anywhere near him he will catch it.

Keep an eye out for Kyle Bell, next coming of Eddie George.

I can see the similarities...thru my Cokebottle-bottom glasses. Anderson is right there next to Mr. Irrelevant, right? If he makes it, great...if not, HELLO Insurance Company.

I like what I hear about him, and its nice to remember his name is Daid, not Derek...but that's another story. Our recieving corps is surprisingly deep, so if he makes it, he'll be mostly a special teams player.

Zidane is doing OK. 1-1
EDIT um...Italia just won.

Great if he makes it, no big deal if he doesn't. Being a 7th round pick, he obviously wasn't highly regarded. It'll be neat if he actually turns into a productive reciever, but the odds are against him being drafted where he was.

He maybe fluff I was just saying just because a guy is a low round pick don't mean he won't make the team.

We do have some UDFAs that folks seem to think have a shot at making the team. I don't see why a guy we actually drafted shouldn't have a pretty good shot at making it too, despite the competition at the position.

When the slobber clears, it'll be settled!!! lol
I'm justtalkin smack. The guy may end up being the Texans Bill Bates. He's probably the tour director at the NFL HOF right now. And one heck of a special teams guy, too, I might add.

I coached against David when he played at Thousand Oaks High here in SoCal.
He was one of the best recievers I had seen, especially for his size. He will do anything asked of him and not complain. He may be another BeBee (spelling?) like the Bills had.

There's a lot to be said for slobberknockers!!!! I hope we have a team full of 'em this year. DC throws an interception, SLOBBERKNOCK that DB and he'll
be thinkin about it the next time DC throws a ball to him!!! Try figuring THAT one out. If you please let me in on it....

I think he spelled his name Bebe, but I'm not sure. That guy could run like a gazelle. I can't remeber the circumstances around it, but I know they clocked him at 4.4 running barefoot. Is Anderson that fast? I thought he was more of a posession guy.

I would agree to a point. Keep in mind Rod Smith was not drafted at all.

The situation Rod Smith was in and Antonio Gates and Priest Holmes is like a one in a million chance. I don't think David Anderson is the one out of a million. He has the skills to someday be a solid 3 or 4 but nothing more than that. Nowadays that is even more rare with how deep scouting is.

I think he will be a practice squad guy. 7th rounders rarely make teams.
