Scout TV: David Edwards

Highlights and analysis of Downers Grove (Ill.) North quarterback David Edwards, a four-star prospect who has committed to Wisconsin as a tight end.

Strengths: It’s hard to gauge what a quarterback prospect is bringing to the table as a future tight end, but David Edwards’ football IQ is at a high, high level. Having a good knowledge of the game and the scheme, playing quarterback has helped Edwards understand the entire picture of the offense.

“I think I have improved a lot in my ability to read defenses, finding holes and making something happen when really nothing is there,” said Edwards. “I think those are the two things I’ve improved on … I think that will help me for when I am running a route to find windows and fit in openings.”

Weaknesses: Edwards is maintaining his frame now, but plans to start adding the weight after the football season to build into a Wisconsin tight end. It may take a year or two to get fully acclimated to the position, but he is a pretty talented prospect player.
