Video Profile 2003 - Barrington Edwards (RB)
Barrington Edwards is arguably the top back in the nation this year. He is surprisingly shifty for a player of his size, which shouldn't be totally unexpected considering his 3.99 shuttle time at the Nike Camp in Penn State. He uses his arms will to shed tacklers by either employing a stiff arm, or pushing their hands away as they reach for him.
His highlight film does not include a lot of break-away runs, but that's more a product of his offense than his lack of home-run speed. Bowie lines up in the spread formation in a lot of situations, and Edwards sees a lot of nickel and dime packages. This leads him to get many more 10-15 yard runs than backs that face an 8 man front, but it keeps him from breaking free too often when there are 6 DB's on the field with a 15 yard cushion.
His highlight video is not crystal clear, but it is clean enough to see the potential that Edwards brings to the table.
