Pos: 
Tough, instinctive linebacker with average size and speed. Quick to read and diagnose plays and takes proper angles to the action. Quick, plays faster than his 40 time and flies around the action to make positive plays. Easily changes direction, shows ability in coverage and covers a lot of area on the field.
Neg: 
One-speed linebacker who lacks a true burst, which will be a problem at the next level. More of a zone-coverage linebacker than one who can man up against tight ends or running backs.
Analysis: 
Edwards was a productive linebacker for three years at Wisconsin but has size and athletic limitations. He could be very good on the inside of a 3-4 alignment, but in the end he may be nothing more than a backup at the next level.
