Eye-popping combination of size and speed. Has the frame of an NBA wing. Tremendous range. Great quickness and athleticism. Finishes when he’s close to the action. Can easily serve as a spy on the quarterback. Excellent closing burst as a blitzer. Effective on both straight blitzes and delayed blitzes. Comfortable covering in man and zone assignments. Elite pass-rushing upside. Very high character. Doesn’t turn 20 until after the draft.



Slow diagnosing. Can have trouble finding the ball. Offensive linemen will get the better of him. Needs to get stronger. Only one interception at Virginia Tech.

Edmunds is a versatile linebacker prospect with sky-high potential at the next level. His combination of size, speed, and athleticism should allow a coaching staff to mold him however they see fit, but I like him best as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense.
