Round 5 (166): Tycen Anderson, DB, Toledo

Recommended Posts

I will harbor no hopes. I never guess right in the later rounds at any rate.

Tough to tell.  First two picks look good.  The two linemen, who knows.  Just hope the coaches can evaluate and pick for their scheme.

WR, RB, or DB with return skills would fit the continuing theme of versatility.

What is this band?

"Alright guys, we finally landed a big gig. Get this: we're playing at the NFL DRAFT in VEGAS!"

"Holy shit! We're going to usher in the top pick???"

"Well, no. Uh. Fifth round."

I have no idea if this guy has corner versatility, but... it would be on brand.

Tycen Anderson was drafted with pick 166 of round 5 in the 2022 draft class. He scored a 9.49 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 45 out of 868 FS from 1987 to 2022

Seems like he is expected to transition to LB but who knows

Oh, that's a different kind of versatility.

The Bengals officially hate positions and want football players.

Anderson had a fourth-round grade by

. Rated as ninth-best safety in the draft. Comes with special teams upside as well.

I don't think he's got LB in his future - he weighs 210.

NFL.com guys said he’s already up to 220..again who know, LB talk is coming from analysts not the team, at least not that I’ve seen yet

I think I like this pick. I don't know the player well enough to give an intelligent take, but I know where he's been projected. Decent value, great athlete, good size, special teamer -- that'll work.

Zierlein:

Three-year starter who aligned as a big nickel and box add-on at Toledo and will likely be targeted in that same capacity by pro teams. Anderson's size, length and speed stand out on tape. He's a determined run supporter who plays with adequate block take-on and play strength near the line of scrimmage. He's a rangy, long tackler with the ability to short-circuit outside runners. Anderson has the potential to handle coverage underneath but might not have the instincts or ball skills to handle additional coverage duties. He has the ability to fit as backup down safety with upside.

PFF:

Anderson played 202 snaps as a part-time safety in his freshman 2017 season. He then locked down the slot role in Toledo’s defense as a sophomore before becoming a starting all-around safety in 2019. Over the past two seasons, though, he trended toward more of a box-slot player with few deep reps on his tape. That was likely by design, as he seemed to have issues locating deeper targets. His work around the line is where he wins, and he will be coveted for his versatility there in Cincinnati.

4.36  in the 40. that's also blazing.

 

I am disappointed we did not add more to the WR room. We have nothing behind the big 3, really.
