Linebackers have to tackle and Anthony is a very good tackler. He hits and wraps with good form. Overall Anthony is one of the few linebackers that can be effective in both a 4-3 and 3-4. He has the size and athletic traits to play Mike or Will in a 4-3 or he can play either ILB position in a 3-4. He has all the needed traits to be a good pro; size, speed, strength, and athleticism. If he decides to enter the draft he will be a high pick.
