He had an incredible collegiate career at the University of Alabama, but Will Anderson is about to make his family and the Houston Texans proud as the No. 3 overall pick of the NFL Draft.
As the lone two-time Unanimous First-Team All-American in Tide history, Anderson received a touching message from his former Alabama teammates after getting drafted. Dallas Turner, a former five-star, was the first player to show up on a FaceTime video to congratulate Anderson. The two are great friends and worked together as outside linebackers. The whole defense for the Tide was happy for Anderson. They want him to have an incredible career representing what he did in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
“He’s gonna be the next Alabama great… that [call] just means the world to me.” ❤️@will_anderson28 was thrilled to hear from his @alabamaFTBL teammates, especially his best friend Dallas Turner. #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/CPFn0PFrIN

Anderson was so thankful to receive the call from Turner. He sees the South Florida native as the ‘next Alabama great.’
Anderson is now with DeMeco Ryans and is ready to dominate for Houston.
