This is a good news, bad news, good news player. Going into the 1996 season, Edwards was touted as one of the top RBs in the draft and was expected to forgo his Sr. year and eventually be a top ten pick. However, he really never got it going into 1996, and suffered through a mediocre season because of injuries.. He even started off 1997 in a sour note. Sprained his ankle early in the years, missing two or three games, and all of a sudden he seemed to have faded from the draft scene. However, he did a remarkable job of rebounding when he got healthy, and finished the season on a strong note, and vaulted himself into the 1st Round...He is an explosive type runner with excellent acceleration, and he has outstanding cutability and vision through the hole. He is a very smooth type RB, and he does not have a lot of wasted motion. He is also a solid receiver in the passing game, and has natural and soft hands out of the backfield. Is very nifty in the open field. The biggest question mark on Edwards will be his durability. He has never had a totally healthy season, but when he is 100% he is something special. He looked excellent in the All-Star games, and should have solid workouts throughout the Spring. The big question here will be which Robert Edwards an NFL team is getting: the one that looked unbeatable in Oct-Nov., or the one that has been injured most of his career. If you get the former, you will have a special player.
