Among the decision-makers in attendance at the Cougars Pro Day workout: Texans general manager Nick Caserio and director of personnel James Liipfert, Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Alan Williams, Buffalo Bills executive Lake Dawson, Las Vegas Raiders scout Calvin Branch, and New Orleans Saints executive C.J. Leak.
Additionally, New York Giants senior personnel executive Kyle O’Brien, Tennessee Titans director of college scouting Jon Salge, Minnesota Vikings director of college scouting Mike Sholiton, longtime Pittsburgh Steelers scout Mark Gorscak, and Washington Commanders executive vice president of player personnel Marty Hurney were present at the pro day.
Anenih had 4 sacks, 9 tackles for losses, and 10 quarterback hits last season. He recorded 20.5 career sacks and 31.5 tackles for loss with 4 forced fumbles.
Anenih ran the 40-yard dash in 4.66 seconds at his pro day, bench-pressed 225 pounds 25 times, and had a 37.5-inch vertical leap.
The Houston defender said his best fit is in a 3-4 defense. Individually, he met with Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and Atlanta Falcons outside linebackers coach Ted Monachino.
Anenih’s weight has increased from 240 pounds during the season to 254 pounds at the East-West Shrine all-star game. At his pro day, he checked in at 247 pounds with a goal of playing at 250.
“I can move, I can move well,” Anenih said at the Houston Pro Day. “I showed I can move well for a guy my height and weight and my size. My movements, backpedaling and shuffling, aren’t an issue for me.
“This means a lot to me because ever since I was a kid I dreamed of this. Finally, it’s here. My dreams are about to finally come true.”
