Isn't real instinctive vs. the pass game, either, and it takes him far too long to read and diagnose plays from the deep half. Plus, he's a long-legged kid who struggles to get up to speed quickly and doesn't even have the range to make plays on bucket throws when he's lined up on the boundary and passes are to his side of the field.
Possesses some natural thump as a tackler and is surprisingly patient when asked to attack downhill and run his feet through the alley. Plays under control when asked to breakdown and does a nice job of not overrunning the football and wraps up well on contact.
Impression: Possesses good overall size for the position, but his lack of range really limits his ability to play in an NFL secondary."
Positive: 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.
Negative: 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."
