    Deuce Wayne Damnit, I cant find my driving moccasins anywhere!

    His main problem is when he stops his feet. It's instinctual and I'm not sure if it can be corrected- but yeah, he's the type that is talented enough naturally to get a few sacks if he plays enough- but many times will be standing flat footed watching the play happen.
  2. RollTide

    RollTide All-Pro

    He had as many sacks as the guy who was drafted 5th. Just about as many tackles and tfl.

    Could be a real gem. You look for a rotational guy in that round but he could be more than that.

    Has only played in a 4-3 so no adjustment is needed and could really benefit from nfl coaching.

    A+ pick!

    Kiper liked him as a prospect better than Montgomery for what that is worth.

    RollTide All-Pro

    Edwards ran a blistering cone time of 7.03 better than some Wrs and CBs. His 40 time was solid and consistent with a decent split.He is similar to jason Jines in a lot of ways and somewhat similar physically to Datone Jones who was a fantastic pick for green bay.

    Can get stronger in the upper body.

    We seemed to have targeted quiet guys with excellent work ethic and athleticism. I have to say, I think it is working and I think we are going to have a solid core group of guys pretty soon.
