Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide have formed and developed a plethora of future NFL stars.
Watching former alumni taking their talents to the pros has become a common trend every single year, and this won’t be the exception to that trend.
Will Anderson Jr. could be the first guy taken off the board this season, as he’s got the potential to be a generational player at the next level.
Needless to say, plenty of that has to do with his God-given traits and talents, but his work ethic and leadership skills have also made him the top-notch prospect he is nowadays.
When asked about that, Anderson credited his days under coach Saban, stating that all he did was try and live up to the standard they’ve set in Alabama.
Anderson added that he never hesitated to step up and get into his teammates’ faces if needed, constantly pushing them to try and be the best versions of themselves.

Those are some of the intangible traits that often make NFL scouts fall in love with these prospects.
Anderson’s potential, physicality, and versatility make experts think he might as well become the best defensive player in his class, and even the best player overall over his teammate Bryce Young.
The Alabama Crimson Tide failed to live up to their own standards as the biggest powerhouse in the nation this season, but they still managed to close out the year strong.
That’s the kind of resiliency and character that shapes guys like Anderson into winners at every level.NEXT: Giants GM Comments On Negotiations With Saquon Barkley
