Default What's with Jamaal Anderson???

This kid was recruited as a wide receiver coming out of high school. He hadn't really done much before last season (13.5 sacks), yet he's ranked 6th on Mel Kiper Jr big board.

BOOM or BUST???

I would say Boom because he is still growing and improving. He will need a good 2 or 3 years to mature. Being a former WR he probably needs more work in the weight room. I expect his lifts to be low. JA is an athlete with talent with a tremendous upside.

nothing wrong with having a great final season. now if he has a great junior year and a poor senior year, then that's a guy you worry about. but this shows progress and that he can learn. so i have no problem with him having a "boom" year. looks like he'll be good.

You can't put TOO much stock in a kid like this. One breakout year in college doesn't necessarily mean pro success is coming. It COULD, but it's not a sure thing.

He was hurt, hamstring injury.

I'm pretty intrested to see this guy on the field. He seems like a great DE opposite of Mario and could really do some damage. I would love to have this guy on our team, dude's a sack artist. BTW, his pro-day for Arkansas is the 13th this month and he said he'd participate.

I get the same feeling i do about Anderson as I did when Travis Johnson came out. Johnson came onto the scene his final year at Forida State. Right now he's a flop.

I think since he started as a WR his lifts will be weak and he wanted more time to to work with the weights before lifting.
