Mel Kiper Jr. released his first NFL mock draft recently. With the draft’s third pick, Kiper has the Arizona Cardinals taking Will Anderson Jr. Defensive end from Alabama.
Will Anderson was dominant in his last two years at Alabama. Over the previous two years, Anderson has compiled 27.5 sacks and 48 tackles for a loss. Anderson had 17.5 sacks and 31 tackles in his sophomore year for a loss. The defensive end is Pro Bowl talent that plays well against the run and pass. Anderson finished his Alabama career with 114 tackles, 58.5 tackles for a loss, and 34.5 sacks.
With J.J. Watt retired, Anderson could fill a void on the Cardinals’ defensive. If the Cardinals take Anderson, he could be a cornerstone for their defense.
