Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DARIUS ANDERSON: TCU, 5104 208 4.63. Three-year starter, Richmond, TX. A two time honorable mention All Big 12 performer. Has been a consistently productive back in the high powered TCU offense since his freshman season. Has led the Horned Frogs in yards per carry every year and displayed a new talent as a receiver last fall. Is a threat with the ball in his hands because of his burst and acceleration, but also some sneaky power and balance. He contorts his body through traffic to break tackles and gain yards after contact. Won’t be an every-down back and needs to shore up ball security and blocking, but he can produce in the league. Competitive. Makes his decision and just goes for it. He has play speed and is aggressive. Will make himself small and slippery through traffic. Excels at twisting and turning his way around tacklers without losing vertical momentum. Excellent balance and control. Recovers well. Will deliver a surprising pop to tacklers. Effective route runner out of the backfield. Needs to add bulk if he intends on running with the same violence in the NFL. Doesn’t show the natural vision between the tackles. May need to be a space-only back. Poor ball placement, allows too much space between his body and the ball. Fringe blocker that won’t sustain contact. 2019 stats: 823 yds, 5.5 ypc, 6 TD, 22 rec, 128 yds, 5.8 ypr, 0 TD, 14-309 KOR, 22.1 avg. OSR:18/33. Sixth/seventh round. (A-31, H-8 1/2, BP-19, SS-4.19).
