2015 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dres Anderson, WR, Utah

Dres Anderson compensated for his team's struggles at quarterback in 2013, somehow managing to become the seventh player in school history to gain over 1,000 yards receiving (1,002 on 53 grabs with seven scores). His 2014 season was cut short when he suffered knee cartilage damage in the fourth quarter of the Southern California clash, but not before he had a reception that set up the game-winning touchdown drives with seconds left to play. The fifth-year senior then missed the final five games on the 2014 schedule.

The lanky pass catcher seems frail-looking especially with his lack of lower body development, but he runs precise routes and uses his exceptional lateral agility, balance and initial burst to elude the initial tackler when working in a crowd. He's been utilized more on screens, crossers and simple route assignments (mostly due to the Utah QBs lacking), but gets most of his success after the catch, as he easily locates the soft areas in the zone and has an array of moves and head fakes to slip past second level defenders to generate big gains on short throws.

Prior to his 2014 knee injury, Anderson possesses excellent straight-line speed, and it is rare to see him struggle vs. the jam, as he has more than enough power and good hand usage to get a clean release off the snap. He shows above average balance and crisp cutting ability, demonstrating the agility and flexibility to make adjustments in his route without having to throttle down.
