Jets signed Temple WR Robby Anderson.
Anderson (6'3/187) opened his college career as a special teamer and defensive back before converting to wideout, where he led the Owls in catches (70), yards (939), and touchdowns (7) as a senior. Snubbed for a Combine invite, Anderson showed explosive athleticism at Temple's Pro Day, blazing 4.36 with a 10-foot-8 broad jump. During the pre-draft phase, some scouts viewed cornerback as Anderson's best NFL position due to his small hands (8 3/8") and rangy frame. Ultimately, Anderson is a multi-year project with some developmental upside. May 2 - 5:02 PM

Temple WR Robby Anderson is visiting the Packers, according to Tom Silverstein.

Anderson produced an outstanding performance against Houston in the school's bowl game and had a solid, yet unspectacular, East West Shrine week. It is noteworthy to add that Anderson went through corner drills during his pro day workout, which might be the position some teams project his future.

Temple WR Robby Anderson worked out as a defensive back at his Pro Day event this week.

"I'm told he looked good in both receiver and defensive back drills," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote. "He caught the ball well at wideout and was clean in the defensive back drills. Scouts commented that they feel Anderson has definite potential as a next-level cornerback." Anderson clocked forty times of 4.46 and 4.40 seconds at the event. He's likely to go on Day 3. The ability to potentially play corner is obviously a big plus for his stock.

Temple WR Robby Anderson could go in mid-Day 3 if he shows well in the postseason, believes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Anderson was forced to sit out last year due to academic transgressions but returned to post a 70-939-7 line. "Though sheer determination Anderson, who was not even graded by scouts entering the season, returned to Temple and improved upon his junior campaign, leading the upstart Owls in receiving," Pauline wrote. "He’s a reliable receiver but is Anderson a next level athlete with Sunday speed? The ability to separate down the field during one-on-one drills and effortlessly catch the deep ball could help Anderson move into the middle of the draft’s final day." The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Anderson is one of our favorite prospects at the East-West Shrine Game.

Temple WR Robby Anderson will play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Out of the spotlight, the 6-foot-3, 175-pound Anderson had a highly underrated final season. After sitting out last season for academic reasons, Anderson returned to post a 70-939-7 line, tremendously impressive in Temple's impotent passing offense. We think there's a good chance he hears his name called on Day 3.

Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson caught six passes for 66 yards in Tuesday's 32-17 loss to Toledo in the Boca Raton Bowl.

Anderson was just about the only bright spot for the Owls offense, which derailed against the underrated Rocket defense. RB Jahad Thomas finished with only five rushing yards and QB P.J. Walker was under constant pressure. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Anderson is out of eligibility but his football playing days aren't over. He has a decent chance to get popped on Day 3.

Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson caught 12 passes for a season-high 150 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-13 loss to Houston in the American Athletic Conference Championship game.

Outside of a 19-yard run, Houston shut down RB Jahad Thomas, putting the onus on QB P.J. Walker (287 yards with a touchdown and an interception) and Anderson to win the game. They couldn't do so, though Anderson acquitted himself well in the spotlight as Temple's only viable source of offense. His shining moment of the day was an Odell Beckham-like one-handed catch on a ball thrown way over his head (check it out at the link below). TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote earlier this season that Anderson has gone from "draft afterthought" to "potential late round pick" because of his 2015 improvement.

Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson caught five passes for 80 yards in the school's 31-12 win over Memphis.

The top play was a 32 yard catch and run which saw Anderson stop and a dime and switch sides of the field. Anderson's Temple career has been rocky, but has consistently put up around five catches per game this year.

Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson posted a 8-126-1 line in Thursday's win against East Carolina.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pounder's previous season highs were five catches and 73 yards, respectively. A step up in production would be good news to his draft stock. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported earlier this month that Anderson has gone from "draft afterthought" to "potential late round pick" due to his 2015 improvement.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson has gone from "draft afterthought" to "potential late round pick" due to his play this year.

Anderson is fresh off a 4-73-1 line in a route of Tulane on Saturday. "Anderson is someone who caught my eye in 2013 when I saw a large, fluid receiver making receptions all over the field," Pauline wrote. Anderson struggled through academic issues earlier in his career, but his house appears to be in order for his final season of eligibility. He's posted 19 catches for 220 yards and four touchdowns in 2015.

Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson reeled in four catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 49-10 demolition of Tulane on Saturday.

This is Temple's first 5-0 start since 1974. The Owls have multiple NFL prospects on defense and precious few on offense. Anderson is one. He sat out last season due to academics, resurfacing this year as a reliable target. Anderson has 19 catches for 220 yards and four touchdowns. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline has called him a Day 3 prospect in the past.

Temple redshirt senior WR Robby Anderson is eligible to play this season.

Anderson sat out last season for academic reasons but worked his way back into good favor. The news is great for Temple, as Anderson led the school in yards (791) and touchdowns (nine) in 2013. The Owls begin practice on Thursday.

Former Temple redshirt senior WR Robbie Anderson is "worth monitoring," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Anderson, an intriguing prospect in 2013 who has fallen off the map due to academic and personal problems, will reportedly play at Florida Tech this season. He was on the Day 3 line a few years ago, but should be able to at least garner post-draft free agent offers with a decent campaign.

Former Temple redshirt junior WR Robbie Anderson "has NFL receiver skills," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The Owls' top receiver in 2013 finished with 44 catches for 791 yards and nine touchdowns despite missing the first two games of the season. "I’m told Robby Anderson, who has NFL receiver skills but struggles in the classroom and with the playbook, is attending junior college in the state of Florida with the hopes of getting his grades up and resuming his college career, though not necessarily at Temple," Pauline wrote. "Here’s hoping it works out for him." Anderson left the program briefly last offseason but ended up returning as a walk-on without a scholarship. The 6-foot-3 receiver reportedly terminated his enrollment for good over the winter because of academic problems. Pauline currently grades Anderson as a Rd. 7 or UDFA prospect. Of course, the prospect has a few seasons of eligibility left to transcend that projection.

Temple redshirt sophomore WR Robbie Anderson is no longer enrolled at Temple.

The Owls' top receiver in 2013 finished with 44 catches for 791 yards and nine touchdowns despite missing the first two games of the season. Anderson left the program briefly last offseason but ended up returning as a walk-on without a scholarship. The 6-foot-3 receiver reportedly terminated his enrollment because of academic problems. Because Anderson has been out of high school for three years, and he isn't currently progressing towards graduation, it's fair to speculate that Anderson might jump to the NFL instead of transferring. If so, he'd face an uphill climb for a roster spot.
