Anderson, Sanford Ink NFL Deals


Following the 2019 NFL Draft, Drew Anderson and Marquez Sanford of the Murray State football team signed undrafted free agent deals with the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars, respectively.

Anderson’s one season at Murray State will go down as one of the most memorable in program history. The senior transfer went 258-for-459 on the season for 2,864 yards with 20 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. His 2,864 yards is the ninth most in single-season history for the Racers and his 258 completions went down as the sixth most in school history, in addition to leading the OVC at 23.5 per game.

On top of his prolific passing, Anderson rushed for 225 yards and five touchdowns. Perhaps, though, he will most be remembered for bouncing back from is three interception and a fumble first half against SEMO, to lead the Racers from being down, 31-0, to the biggest comeback in program history.

Sanford was a four-year starter for the Racers with 176 total tackles total for his four years. In addition, he ended his career with five interceptions and 25 additional pass breakups, including 12 in 2016 and seven in 2017.

The duo gives the Racers three players total to sign with a team this draft season after Quincy Williams was taken in the third round Friday by the Jaguars.
