BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter whose senior-year totals were 49/720/11. Also averaged 19.5 yards on eight kick returns. All-Conference selection as a junior after posting 56/789/11.
POSITIVES: Smart, hard-working receiver with outstanding intangibles. Plays with excellent balance and body control and makes the difficult reception downfield. Extends, displays good eye/hand coordination, and shows focus. Finds the soft spot in the defense, adjusts to the errant throw, and uses his frame to protect the pass. Displays strong hands with the ability to pluck the fastball from the air.
NEGATIVES: Undersized and an average blocker downfield. Does not display deep speed or the ability to beat defenders in a foot race.
ANALYSIS: Edwards has been a productive college receiver the past four years. A savvy football player, he possesses enough natural skill to make it as a fifth receiver on an NFL roster.
