One of the biggest wide receivers in the 2020 NFL Draft class, Bryan Edwards has the physical skills necessary to be a productive target. His catch radius and sneaky athleticism for his size only add to his intriguing package. There are plenty of questions, however, including the health of his knee. He also needs to work on his ball skills and refine other techniques.
Bryan Edwards Draft Profile
College: South Carolina
A long, strong contested-catch specialist, Edwards has the size and strength to overpower corners at the next level. Along with his sturdy build, he’ll effectively hand-fight downfield to create late separation. His catch radius is large, and he has the length to high-point the ball consistently. He has a little more twitch than you might expect for his size, with the ability to create after the catch. He’ll go hard as a blocker on the perimeter, with the size to bully defensive backs.
Edwards doesn’t consistently create separation — he’s more comfortable seeking out contact and working from there. He struggled to win 50/50 balls against big corners, the kind of matchups he’s going to see at the next level. His knee will be examined closely after a meniscus injury last season.
His size and athleticism are intriguing, but Edwards will have to prove he’s up to the task against bigger NFL corners and get a better feel for ball-tracking and timing.
Final Grade: 3rd/4th round
