Pos: 
Large, relatively athletic right tackle who comes off a somewhat disappointing season. Quick, moves well on his feet and shows ability at the second level. Very effective with his hands, shows better-than-average skill pulling across the line of scrimmage and adjusts to linebackers. Stays square, shows impressive power and easily knocks defenders from the action. Gets his hands into opponents and rides them from their angles of attack. Easily seals the edge for ball carriers and works through the whistle. Keeps his head on a swivel, displays outstanding awareness and has a feel for blocking.
Neg: 
Did not show great lateral blocking range last season and was exploited by speed rushers. Struggled with a significant shoulder injury in 2018 that may raise red flags.
Analysis: 
Edwards looked like a top-10 pick after his sophomore season, but his play took a step back last season in large part due to the shoulder injury. He has the size and ability to start at the next level if healthy, but he must get his game back to where it was in 2017.
