Bryan Edwards Draft Profile
Overall, Bryan Edwards is just a really solid receiver. He’s a really good route runner and was his quarterback’s number on target throughout his college career and is a legend at South Carolina. He has a lot of injury question marks and his hands are inconsistent. He has some insane, highlight reel catches, but has a ton of drops. He showed up in the big games, I just don’t think he does any thing amazing. He is a really good third down receiver and should be a fourth round pick in the draft. He also had a couple different injuries through his time with South Carolina, including a season ending one this year. I think he’ll be a number three receiver at the next level.

I think Bryan Edwards is a good receiver, I don't think he's great. I think he'll be a number three receiver, but he was the go to guy at South Carolina last season. I feel like Edwards doesn't stand out in any certain area of his game. He gains separation through his route running and he is solid after the catch. Edwards is going to be a good complimentary receiver in the NFL.
Team Fits: Seahawks, Buccaneers, Falcons
