Will Anderson's life is now undergoing significant transformation.
The former Alabama great made the jump to the NFL when the Houston Texans selected him third overall in the 2023 NFL Draft.
There will be a job change associated with that time period.
Anderson will switch positions with the Texans and play defensive end instead of linebacker.
Anderson received honor after honor while at Alabama. In 2021 and 2022, he was named the SEC's defensive player of the year.
Former Georgia defensive end David Pollack is the only other player to earn SEC Defensive Player of the Year twice.
Ryans is not concerned that Anderson's current role will be affected.
At Alabama, he spent most of his time standing, but here, he'll be seated in a three-point stance. For him, this is hardly a major career shift.
Anderson was a two-time unanimous All-American and a two-time Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner. His final collegiate stats were 34.5 sacks and 58.5 tackles for loss.
