Overview:

Edwards fnished his career at Dartmouth, where he played in 29 career games, had 31 tackles, 2.5 for loss, 2.0 sacks, and 1 forced fumble. He has good edge rush size, he has good speed, and is a solid tackler. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is very powerful, he gets a good push on the offensive line, and he does not get pushed around that easily. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is a relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. And he uses his power, and speed to get through and around the offensive line when in pursuit of the ball carrier. On the other hand, he is not known as a big sack guy, but that does not hurt his game, and due ton his size frame he will not be an every down 4-3 defensive end, and possibly have to switch to being a 3-4 outside linebacker. With that said, I view Edwards as a potential day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
