I would say having seen both of them play a lot in college, Anderson is more similar to Myles Garrett than Miller for sure.I don‘t honestly think this way but since you asked. Anderson is a Von Miller type player, but stronger physically. If he moves up and puts his hand on the ground, maybe Chase Young. Anderson is very talented, but this up is an Edge rich draft if you want to build a dominant defense and take 2 front end defenders you can get an Edge in round 2. He certainly will be an impact player and is well above the other Edges at this point. He would not be a bad choice. If the Bears were to take Carter, I’d trade down before taking Anderson.
I’m sure I’ll get attacked for this but Carter’s game reminds me of Warren Sapp. He has that rare ability to totally disrupt a game inside. He is the best recently at penetrating yet he anchors well against the run. He is not a 2 down player. He will draw double teams and allow for stunting and penetration by other players. He makes the other linemen better. He changes the nature of the entire line. He has to be accounted for on every play.
Anderson is very good, but he’s no Von Miller. Lacks the bend to be great like Miller.I'd go Anderson. His play against the run is spectacular for a not huge guy. And he gets into the backfield a lot. Reminds me of a young Von Miller, but he is probably better coming out.
No, no, no. Anderson’s biggest weakness is his bend around the edges. Garrett & Miller have sick bend. Still, Anderson should be a very good NFL player. What Anderson has is great quickness & hands.I would say having seen both of them play a lot in college, Anderson is more similar to Myles Garrett than Miller for sure.
Yeah watching Carter just ragdolling SEC offensive linemen was eye popping though. If he can be that disruptive at the next I would really be torn. These two look like they’re talented multiple levels beyond anyone on our defense.Carter has some unreal talent. That play where he threw the guard out of his way one handed reminded me of stuff Eric Swann used to do.
As much as some people love elite interior guys, I still don't agree that they are as valuable as elite edge guys. Anderson has a damn good chance to be really special on the edge. The Cardinals have really only had one really twitchy guy like that since I've watched the team, Simeon Rice, and he still isn't as twitchy as Anderson is.
Yeah but watching Anderson's technique to hold his ground against guys almost 100 pounds larger than him is amazing. The easiest route to disrupting the QB is on the edge. It's more consistent.Yeah watching Carter just ragdolling SEC offensive linemen was eye popping though. If he can be that disruptive at the next I would really be torn.

Both Anderson and Carter could be there when Cards pick. Bears could trade down and got lots of picks for teams wanting a qb. Young and Stroud could go on picks 1 & 2.
I‘ve done some quick asking around and I think I have the top 4 picks locked. Unless someone makes a ridiculous offer (these QBs are not that strong) the Bears trade down with Indy. Why Indy? I have it from 2 good sources, if the Bears were still at 2 they were debating between Carter and Anderson. It’s a lock Indy takes Young. Texas will take Stroud unless Levis has great workouts, but they take a QB. That means the Cards get their pick of the DLs. I‘ve mentioned some of this elsewhere but I don’t think this is a tough choice. The Cards take Carter. They could trade down, but top DTs who can penetrate are rare. You don’t pass on them. By only going down to 4, the Bears are assured of getting one of the DLs they love and a great haul of picks. They win the draft.
Do you mean, they "won" by losing?
Anderson has less bend / twitchyness than Miller, but is far more powerfulAnderson is very good, but he’s no Von Miller. Lacks the bend to be great like Miller.
