Who do you think is the better player? It looks like Anderson just came onto the scene this year while Adams was considered the best DE in the country the whole season.

i kinda like adams because of his speed and quickness, which contrasts mario's power game. you can alternate sides with them to work on different OT's to get them on their heels.

I haven't looked at the two of them close enough to say for sure who I think is the better player, but I would prefer Jamaal Anderson for our team. Adams is probably the better pure pass rusher but Anderson is much more stout against the run and I don't want more small pass rushers that can't hold up against the run. Anderson and Mario at DEs with Weaver and Payne/Maddox/TJ/or a new guy at DTs would be pretty stout against the run and should provide pretty good pressure on QBs.

Adams is considred a top pass rusher, but good against the run as well. Anderson is considered a top talent all around. Moss from FL provides a top pass rush and can at least hold his own against the run. I'd rather take a flyer on an SEC pass rushing DE than a Peek or Babin type guy.

I like them both I really wouldn't be disappointed if we selected Adams or Anderson. I prefer Anderson because of his size. Let's see what the combine brings.
