University of Alabama linebacker Will Anderson, Jr. made a striking arrival at the 2023 NFL Draft in Kansas City, Mo.
He was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year in his sophomore year and is considered one of the top prospects for the 2023 NFL Draft. Coming in as the third-round pick, the Alabama Crimson Tide alum is heading to Houston to join the Texans.
Anderson slipped on a slim, double-breasted linen suit with a wide peak lapel, double vents, and natural shoulder. It featured a signature 2×6 button placement, patch pockets, and was accompanied by matching flat-front trousers that have a wide waistband and side adjusters for a comfortable fit. He accessorized with bold diamond jewelry and even added some bling to his lapel with diamond-encrusted pins with his initials.
Anderson completed his look with a pair of brown suede loafers that featured two gold buckles. Loafers have been a popular trend at NFL drafts for years. In 2021, top draft picks like Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson opted for classic black loafers to complement their custom suits. In previous years, players such as Saquon Barkley and Quinnen Williams have made bold statements with their footwear, choosing patterned and embellished loafers. The trend shows no signs of slowing down, with many players opting for this stylish and comfortable shoe option to complete their draft-day look.
