At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds the first thing you notice about Deon Edwards when watching his film is that he comes straight down hill to get to the ball carrier and that he tackles tackles straight through the man with the ball. He does need to use his arms to wrap a little better, but he targets the ball carrier dead center and uses his ample size to knock them to the ground.
He has an excellent ability to cover most of the field and understands angles and while he isn't a blazer, he is plenty fast and he uses his instincts to get to the ball carrier on time.
No doubt that South Carolina and Florida Atlantic, who have already offered, notice the hard hitting as what stands out in the tape and just the overall nasty attitude he brings when his helmet meets his opponent's body.
Take a look for yourself.
