RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Though a neck injury prevented Edwards from participating in a large portion of the Raiders' offseason program, he is reportedly 100 percent recovered and is showing well during the onset of training camp. As a rookie, Edwards lined up at both defensive end and linebacker, totaling 41 tackles and 2.5 sacks on the year. As part of an ascending Raiders defensive unit, Edwards is poised to improve upon his rookie-year stat line.
The Raiders selected Edwards in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, 35th overall out of Florida State. Edwards is a versatile defensive lineman that can play both tackle and end, and it's likely that the Raiders' will move him around throughout the preseason to find out where he fits best. He should see a solid amount of playing time right from the start and could be great addition to an already improved Raiders' defense.
