Anderson hasn't had a career yet. So how can you compare Tds whole career to nothing. So hes comparing the beginning.Believe it or not, Td was a no name who came into the league and made a name for himself later. He was not the great back we saw during the super bowl years. If we went by first years Mike Andreson should be in the Hall of fame. Unless you have a magic crystal ball their is no way you can say how C.J. Anderson career will go.

Even rarer for one team to do it more than once.
TD was drafted, unless your talking about someone else

But to mention TD and then attempt to qualify it as a comparison in situation only when they're not similar it not feasible.
Every late round rb that shows a little promise can be compared to tds situation. Td wasn't a 2000 yard rusher or playoff mvp when he came into the league. It is possible for any of them to be a starter.
