Journey to the draft: Rory "Busta" Anderson

Watch some of the top plays by former South Carolina tight end Rory "Busta" Anderson.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- A few quick thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers' second seventh-round draft pick.

The pick: Busta Anderson, tight end, South Carolina

My take: He’s got a great name and, at 6-foot-5, 244 pounds, is officially listed as a tight end, giving the Niners eight tight ends, though he probably projects more as a receiver in the NFL. And that’s probably where he has a better shot at sticking. At least, in the wake of his being drafted with the No. 254th overall selection, the Niners' 10th of the draft.

A surplus: If you count long-snapper Kyle Nelson, who can dabble at the position, the Niners have nine tight ends with Anderson. But Anderson is ultra-athletic and quick, even if he has torn each triceps in each of the past two seasons. In fact, he needed surgery and missed the Gamecocks’ bowl game.
