Spencer Anderson drafted by Pittsburgh Steelers in seventh round

A fifth Terp has heard his name called in the 2023 NFL Draft with offensive lineman Spencer Anderson coming off the board to the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 251st overall pick.

Spencer Anderson, a former three-star prospect out of Bishop McNamara (MD), signed with Maryland after former assistant and current Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen recruited the 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman to College Park.

Anderson was a versatile lineman who played across the line through his four-year career. Anderson was an integral piece in the Terps’ veteran line after starting the last 31 games in his career, with 12 starts at right guard and one at right tackle as a senior. Anderson also lined up at center during his junior season, proving himself as the dependable lineman that the unit needed. As a redshirt freshman, Anderson appeared in all but one of Maryland’s 12 games and made his first career start against Rutgers.

Anderson was also named an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection as a junior and was named to the East-West Shrine Bowl after declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Anderson joins Jaelyn Duncan as offensive linemen drafted in the 2023 NFL Draft, the first time that Maryland has had two linemen selected in the same draft since 1991.
