05/05/15 - A closer look at the 49ers' 10 picks: Round 7/254 -- Rory Anderson, TE, 6-4, 244, South Carolina...The second tight end selected by the 49ers, Anderson isn't at all like the first one, Oklahoma's Blake Bell. Anderson made a career out of catching the ball at South Carolina and is seen as a down-the-field threat similar to 49ers starter Vernon Davis. Anderson is still recovering from surgery on a torn triceps that occurred during the 2014 season. - The Sports Xchange
08/25/14 - Other South Carolina prospects worth watching: TE Rory Anderson, Senior...A starter in 13 of 38 games over his career (including the last seven in 2013), Anderson was being projected as a possible all-conference pick this fall before a torn right triceps late in spring. He's still expected to play in 2014 but may not be ready for the team's opener August 28 against Texas A&M. Anderson has averaged 17.8 yards per catch over his career (39 receptions for 694 yards) and scored eight touchdowns. Anderson has good initial burst and agility to gain separation off the line of scrimmage and showed good hands on the tape reviewed. Unlike many other "hybrid" tight end/receivers across the country, Anderson seems to enjoy the physical battles at the line of scrimmage, showing surprising strength and tenacity while blocking. He is quick and competitive when sealing the edge and works to sustain his blocks. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
