2011 NFL Draft Profile: Christian Anthony - Grambling, DE

Height: 6-3

Weight: 281lbs

PROS: Very athletic for his size. Sheds blocks well, very flexible, and shows good closing speed. Relentless pass rusher but also plays the run well. Has played well when he’s player BCS level competition. Will get looks at both 4-3 defensive end and 3-4 outside linebacker. Quick first step and has violent hands. When he is on the football field he can collapse the pocket and bother the quarterback with pressure.

CONS: Runs around blockers more so than using an array of pass rushing moves. Can take some plays off and his arms are shorter than ideal for a defensive lineman. Can play out of control at times and lose contain. Massive injury red flags. Missed the entire 2010 season because of an apparently heart attack after practice in August 2010. Anthony’s camp denies it was an actual heart attack, but there are concerns with an issue with his heart.
