Conference: Atlantic Coast
40 Time: 4.55
Biography: Became a full-time starter as a senior and posted 68 tackles. Junior totals included 36 tackles. Began his college career at Virginia Tech.
Positives: "Large, aggressive defensive back who does not show much consistency in his game. Fast up the field, strong at the point, and brings ball carriers down on initial contact. Shows skill in zone, has a closing burst to the action, and plays with quickness."
Negatives: Inefficient and does not take proper angles to the action. Not a reliable tackler. Lacks great speed to the flanks. Marginally instinctive.
Analysis: Edwards very much looks the part yet does not always play up to his potential on the field. He's an athletic prospect who has somewhat underachieved on the college level but has the desired size/speed numbers to be used either as a zone or strong safety at the next level.
