Summary: Versatile safety known for his instinctual style of play. He excels in run support, showcasing a relentless pursuit mentality. Edwards trusts his vision on the field and operates like a “general contractor,” contributing in various defensive capacities. His strengths shine in split-safety schemes and at the dime backer position, where he maximizes his impact. Adept at playing as a robber, he disrupts passing lanes effectively, often deceiving quarterbacks by convincing them that their receiver has leverage on the primary defender. Edwards is always around the ball, demonstrating a knack for playmaking. Notably, he garnered interest from the Buffalo Bills during the draft process, engaging in an hour-long discussion with them at the Senior Bowl. -Turner
