Mike Edwards is a worthy tackler. After watching his tapes. There were only a couple times I have seen him miss tackles. He would give running backs headaches the way he played the box. He fits playing inside the box, slot or curl routes, inside or outside. I think he plays better inside the box then he does covering Wide Receivers deep. He does come in at 5’10 and that is a little too short for most coaches liking nowadays. He also only weighs 201 pounds and has to gain weight, especially if you are trying to put him on a bigger faster Tight End. As good as Mike Edwards is tackling I think he might be able to fill the bill defending certain TEs as long as they are not that fast. This bothers me with Mike, he does not seem to have legit speed for the next level. Which will also limit him with certain WRs.
