Found June 20, 2013 on NFL Draft Zone:

Colin Anderson was the most underrated tight end prospect in this draft. Out of all the small school tight ends, he is the best pure all around athlete in my opinion.  I believed Anderson would have been drafted, but unfortunately he wasn’t. He was however signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent. Colin is a special talent, he has great hands, and is very athletic.  He has great size and strength and is a very good down field blocker. Even though he played at Furman, he still played against some studs in his four year career. One player he will never forget is his new teammate Sharrif Floyd who at the time played for the Florida Gators. “The toughest player I played against was Shariff Floyd from Florida during my junior year in college. He had really quick hands and was very athletic which made it more difficult to get inside position.” Colin is not a slouch by any means, this kid has great hands.  He is on a team with several great tight ends, but he deserves his fair shake. I think Colin could be a guy that beats out a veteran because of his speed.  He reminds me of a bigger Owen Daniels, would you like that on your team Vikes fans?  Remember the name Colin Anderson, he could be coming to a 53 man roster near you if the Vikings some how make a decision of letting this stud go.
