Will Anderson Jr, you are a Texan!
With the 3rd pick of the 2023 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans have selected Alabama Crimson Tide star Will Anderson Jr. Anderson is a top defensive prospect with many even saying he is the top player overall. With two SEC Defensive Player of the Year awards and two unanimous All-American Team selections, he joins Houston and former Alabama Crimson Tide star DeMeco Ryans as a potential defensive cornerstone for years to come.
NFL Comparison: Von Miller
Will Anderson Jr. has drawn comparisons of Von Miller as a can’t miss defensive force. He has displayed NFL athleticism and size in the SEC all while becoming a feared factor. His strengths are overwhelming as they range from his deadly quickness/power to his intangibles as a leader and teammate.
Anderson will gel well with Head Coach DeMeco Ryan’s defensive style and culture with the potential of achieving star status. He looks to eventually become an elite defender and perhaps one of the faces of the Houston Texans organization.
This pick was predicted by many and seems to be a match made in Heaven. Especially considering the Texan’s history of drafting pass rushers in the first round.
Welcome to Houston, Will Anderson Jr!
