Size and speed mark the ability of Dres Anderson. A receiver with good hands and the ability to make teams pay deep, he is a receiver with NFL potential moving forward.
The son of former NFL receiver Willie “Flipper” Anderson, Dres Anderson was an all-conference football player at John W. North High School in Riverside, Calif. As a junior, he had 29 catches for 607 yards and six scores, then played in only six games his senior year before making his way to Utah.
After a redshirt year in 2010, Anderson appeared in all 13 games for Utah in 2011, starting three. He wound up the team’s second-leading receiver with 23 catches, 355 yards and three scores.
He broke into the starting lineup in 2012, starting 11 of 12 games and led the Utes with 36 catches for 365 yards and another three scores. An honorable mention academic All-Pac-12 recipient, Anderson was just getting started.
In 2013, he not only showed he was ready to be a big contributor, he was ready to make big plays within the Utah offense. Anderson finished the 2013 season with 53 catches for 1,002 yards (18.9 ypc) and seven scores playing with two different quarterbacks.
