Edmonds is a good-sized (5-11, 205 pounds) back. He is a physical runner, a north-south kind of guy primarily, but he does not shy away from contact and finishes his runs. He is good between the tackles. He has good vision and ability to find running lanes and shows a solid burst when he finds the lane. He has the build and toughness to be a back who can support heavy amounts of carries per game. He does not currently show himself as a big homerun threat. He does not run with a ton of wiggle or elusiveness. He is, as scouts say "more bully than ballerina" as a runner. He does show some subtle ability with his feet to chop and change directions, Generally
P.J. Fleck had a bigger, more powerful back in Jarvion Franklin run for a lot of yards and Western Michigan and Edmonds can be that sort of back in the Twin Cities. He is a Big Ten style back, a bad-weather, slug it out style back and one who will punish potential tacklers.
