Will Anderson was a nightmare for opposing offenses in 2021.

He took over the college football stage and was the most dominant player in the SEC. Anderson became the first jack/rush linebacker of the Nick Saban era to total 100+ tackles. He collected 101 total tackles, including 34.5 for loss and 17.5 sacks.

The 6-foot-4, 243-pounder led the nation in tackles for loss and sacks.

He also posted a team-high nine quarterback hurries. Anderson won the Bronko Nagurski Award and earned first-team All-SEC and Unanimous All-American honors. He won SEC Defensive Player of the Year and garnered the respect of his teammates as a permanent team captain. Anderson did not win a College Football Playoff National Championship, and it is fueling him for next season. He dropped a hype video to his Instagram, preparing Crimson Tide fans for his dominance as a junior in the coming fall.

Anderson is on a mission and with Dallas Turner rising, both will provide headaches for quarterbacks.
