Braylon Edwards School: Michigan
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 211 40: 4.50 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who's been an All-
Conference player since his sophomore campaign.
Led the team in receiving as a senior,
totaling 97/1,330/15, winning All-American
honors as well as the Biletnikoff Award. Junior
totals included 85/1138/14.
Positives: Big, physical
receiver who breaks games wide open or
controls them from the get-go. Quick releasing
off the line, boxes out opponents with his
frame and easily makes receptions in traffic.
Fast down the field, gets vertical then contorts
in mid-air for the acrobatic grab. Displays good
eye/hand coordination, looks the pass in and
extends to offer the quarterback a nice target.
Easily beats jams at the line of scrimmage or
physically pounds opponents to come away
with the ball. Displays open-field running
skills after the reception and blocks with solid
technique. Runs well laterally and displays
the ability to quickly change direction. Sells
Negatives: Not always mentally on top
of his game, loses focus or takes his eye off
the ball. Must be more cognizant of becoming
the hot receiver in blitz situations.
superior athlete who plays bigger and faster
than his computer number, Edwards makes
truly amazing plays on the football field with
regularity. A terrific red-zone target who creates
mismatches, he has an unusually high ratio of
touchdown receptions. Worthy of an early first
round selection and should have a long and
productive NFL career once he learns to focus
and give attention to detail.
