ERIC EDWARDS
Position: TE
Class: Sr
School: LSU
Conference: SEC
Ht., Wt.: 6'4, 249
40 Time: 4.91
Grade: 3.02

BIO: Two-year starter who posted career receiving numbers of 16/155/2 as a senior after catching just six passes for 35 yards the prior season.

POSITIVES: Efficient, blocking tight end who gives top effort. Quickly gets off the ball into blocks, tenacious and strong at the point of attack. Stays square, jolts opponents then walls them from the action with good body positioning. Keeps his feet moving in pass protection and looks to hit someone. Fluid releasing into pass routes, extends for the tough grab and remains focused throughout the action.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the soft hands and does a lot of double catching. Stiff and lacks adjustment as a blocker. Overall game lacks quickness and explosion.

ANALYSIS: Known as a prospect with excellent work habits and intensity, Edwards is a marginal athlete with limited skills as a pass receiver. Could catch on as a blocking tight end on third-down situations.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
