Edwards was the 2nd of three 3rd-round picks for the Raiders in 2020, coming off the board 1 spot after RB Lynn Bowden. Edwards brings with him a terrific college-production profile, including a breakout age of 18 and team-leading market shares across receiving categories as a 2017 sophomore and 2019 senior.
Edwards brings outside-receiver size at 6’3, 212 pounds, but he also played 32% of his 2019 snaps in the slot. So he could compete at multiple spots this season for a Raiders offense that only had 1 player go over 71 targets. His 13.0 yards per catch career at South Carolina won’t grab your attention, but Edwards was stellar after the catch. He averaged 7.6 yards after the catch per reception, good for 5th in the draft class.
Edwards could compete with Tyrell Williams for the X receiver spot, but he’ll first need to prove he’s over the Jones fracture in his left foot that kept him from working out at the Combine. We’ll see once training camp begins if that will hamper Edwards’ preparation, or if he experiences any related issues.
Edwards looks like an upside play for the long term, but he’ll need to prove he can be a fantasy factor for 2020. Even if the foot he broke in February isn’t an issue this summer, he’ll face competition from Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow and classmate Henry Ruggs for opportunities. Williams’ contract, though, holds no guaranteed money beyond 2020.
