First-Team All-ACC selection (media, coaches) ... first-team All-ACC by Athlon, College Sports Madness, ESPN and Phil Steele ... Senior Bowl invitee ... had a team-high 90 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, 11 quarterback pressures, one interception for eight yards, four pass breakups and two caused fumbles in 711 snaps over 13 games (12 starts) ... had five tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in 55 snaps at No. 12 Georgia on Aug. 30 ... had five tackles and two tackles for loss in 16 snaps against SC State on Sept. 6; named team defensive player-of-the-game ... had a team-high eight tackles, two tackles for loss, one sack, two pass breakups and two quarterback pressures in 66 snaps at No. 1 Florida State.

Was surprised by it as I recall Anthony being coveted going into his draft.

He had played ay a high level against the better ACC and SEC teams.

I didn’t either. He was over-hyped HS kid out of Loganville GA who never reached his potential at Ole Miss.

He’s in the first phase of his Ra’shede Hageman cycle. I’ll take the Shede we have now. They are basically the same player. Ours may be ready now mentally. We will see.

It's funny how some use the word "suck."

All ACC, multi-year NFL career, things that make him top 1% of all football players and we say he sucks.  It's all relative I guess.
