RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

The Virginia Tech product has been an exceptional IDP the last two years, totaling 275 tackles (199 solo), five sacks and three interceptions since becoming a full-time starter in 2010. The problem, though, is itís hard to see him sustaining that tackle pace since heíll compete with both ninth overall draft pick Luke Kuechly and Jon Beason (who is returning from a season-ending Achillesí tear) for tackles, and that duo figures to pile up a hefty total itself. Kuechly in particular is a concern after hoarding comical tackle numbers at Boston College. Still, Anderson should remain one of the better linebacker IDPs in 2012 due to his own effectiveness and the Swiss cheese defensive line in front of him Ė even with Kuechly and Beason each racing past the triple-digit tackle mark, the exceptional frequency with which opposing ballcarriers get to the second level against the Panthers defense means thereís room for all three to produce.

2011

Itís possible heís a one-year wonder, but Anderson was generally quite convincing in his first full season as a starter in 2010. In his fifth season out of Virginia Tech, Anderson went off for 130 tackles (101 solo), 3.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles. The 130 tackles were exactly twice as many as his previous career high, and his 11 tackles for loss indicate that Anderson isnít just some garbage-time feeder. The Panthers kept Anderson in town with a new five-year contract, which means his situation remains stable.

2010

Should get a crack at the starting strongside linebacker position with Thomas Davis likely to miss the season.

2009

Veteran entering camp on the roster fringe. Anderson will be a special teams contributor and reserve linebacker if he sticks with the Panthers for a fourth season.

2008

Anderson will serve as a reserve linebacker and special-teams player for the Panthers, while his chances of starting in the event of an injury have been reduce with the selection of Dan Connor during the third round of the 2008 draft.

2007

Depth guy at linebacker.
