Former Alabama football player Ryan Anderson is entering his first NFL training camp after being selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins.
While some rookies struggle to get acclimated to the NFL game, Anderson appears to already be ahead of the curve.
What does he credit for the quick adjustments? None other than his experience playing for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. In fact, Anderson says practices at Alabama were tougher than they are with the Redskins.
“Practices there are a little bit rougher than here,” Anderson said, via USA TODAY.
“We do a lot of banging around there, so it definitely prepared me physically and mentally for this grind that I’m doing now.”
With all of the players that Alabama has sent on to the NFL and the incredibly talented rosters that Saban is able to put together in Tuscaloosa each and every year, it’s no surprise that Crimson Tide players can adjust quicker than your average rookie.
