Coming from North Dakota State, Bruce Anderson has not been gaining much draft buzz. However, there is untapped potential that could come out against better competition. Anderson
has the size to handle a workload between the tackles, and while he did not test at the combine, he did put up strong athletic scores that meet NFL thresholds.

Anderson is a smooth runner who glides to make quick cuts and catch defenders diving at his feet. His instincts, combined with patience and footwork allow him to break runs into the second level, where you see surprising power to finish runs off.
Anderson works well in the passing game, with the ball in his hands and as a pass protector. His power, quicks, and receiving game ability make him a do-everything back that could compliment Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis with ease.
Thanks to his lower school status and not getting the combine invite Anderson is going to fall in the NFL draft. The Bears could address other positions and find themselves with a gem in Bruce Anderson late.
