Overview
Edwards is an aggressive corner, who despite not having ideal size, will be physical with wideouts. He has an impressive athletic skill set, but he is still a bit unrefined technique wise. An upside player, who can also contribute immediately as a kick returner.

  • Impressive kick return ability
Weaknesses

  • Doesn't have great technique in his press, can lose at the line of scrimmage
  • Can get beat based on starring down the quarterback
  • Inconsistent in driving on the football
