Anderson, the 8th overall pick by the Falcons in 2007 has registered 4.5 sacks in 4 seasons. I’m not sure where Anderson fits with the Colts. He is a freakish athlete at 6’6″ and 290 lbs, but his position in which he was drafted was defensive end. I’m not even sure if Anderson would make the DE rotation with Freeney, Mathis, and ever Jerry Hughes. He could come out at a bigger DE on rushing downs to replace the smaller Robert Mathis.
Anderson could make his way as a specialty player at DT on passing downs. He is a big body, and could put some pressure on the quarterback from the middle positions.
There is no question that Anderson will not be a starter on the Colts defensive line, even with the under achieving tackle positions. Anderson could become the future Raheem Brock, a situational defensive lineman, but not a starter.
I like the signing, but again, I’m not sure how much of an impact he will make on the Colts this season.
