    Rams sign undrafted free agent FB Brandon McAnderson

    Former Kansas University and Lawrence High football standout Brandon McAnderson has agreed in principle to a free-agent deal with the NFL's St. Louis Rams.

    McAnderson, a 6-foot, 235-pound fullback, was a 1,000-yard rusher for the Jayhawks, but was not picked in the seven-round NFL Draft this weekend. St. Louis showed immediate interest in signing him as a free agent once the draft concluded.
    From KUSports.


    Analysis from NFL.com:

    Analysis


    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 238
    College: Kansas
    Conference: Big 12
    Hometown: Lawrence, KS
    High School: Lawrence

    Positives: Good build for the fullback position. ... Good interior runner. ... Hits the hole hard and with good forward lean. ... Good ball security. ... Showed improved hands and route running as a senior. ... Flashes power as a lead blocker. ... Will face up the linebacker and keeps his feet moving. ... Has developed into a leader.

    Negatives: Hasn't been used as a traditional fullback while at Kansas despite being listed as such earlier in his career. ... One dimensional north-south runner with little creativity. ... Lacks lateral agility to make defenders miss. ... Even with his improvements as a senior, is still a very limited receiving option who lacks the body control to make difficult grabs.

    1,000 yd rusher as a fuillback is pretty impressive, even though as stated, he really wasn't used that way at Kansas. The Rams FB Position needed to be addressed, hopefully this acquisition pans out.

    The more bodies in camp the better, because you never know when you could find that undrafted free agent gem (ex:Priest Holmes, and need I mention Kurt Warner?).

    As a Kansas graduate I can tell you that everyone will love McAnderson. He might not make the team, but he'll play hard and is *very* difficult to bring down.

    As far as him not being a fullback primarily, that's crap. He was a lead blocker for at least two years before getting a lot of carries last year, primarily as a TB. He's a tough runner (no east-west, all north south) that is very difficult to bring down.

    Sounds like a touch kid. I would like to see him make the team.

    That is an interesting bit on SENE , another G ? with all the guard pickups , BELL signed , SCHUENNING and GRECO( will most likely go to 3rd tackle immediately ) and now SENE .

    That might be a hint that SETTERSTROM and/or INCOGNITO move to start at CENTER and have ROMBERG as backup since he only signed a 1-year offer . But SENE might just be a a project with upside that can be brought along slowly, remember we drafted SHACKLEFORD last year to do that but he was just bad .

    Also , I had the RAMS targeting SENE's teammate , REDD , LB/RDE in the late late rounds as a rushing DE .

    Nope, only because he went to UC!

    Love the Vince Hall signing, I really thought he was gone by at least the 4th.
