QB | StanfordTrent Edwards
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 231 | 40 Time: 4.73
Positives: Trent Edwards started 31 games at Stanford over four seasons, giving him valuable experience at the position. He has adequate arm strength and accuracy and focuses on trying to analyze defenses by making adjustments on the fly. He has a quick release and did well in college considering he didn't have well-known talent surrounding him. He doesn't have blazing speed, but he can move around enough to create some opportunities on offense.
Negatives: Although it wasn't necessarily his fault, he was often on the end of negative plays due to the lack of talent around him. When Edwards makes his adjustments to try and outsmart a defense, sometimes he overdoes it and ends up making a poor decision. A big concern surrounding Edwards is the fact that he is coming off of an injury that only allowed him to play in seven games last season, as he threw six touchdowns and six interceptions. He wasn't able to throw too good of a deep ball in college.
Notes: Because he played on a low-key team, there is hope that he would really excel with the right situation in the NFL. He is another quarterback that would have to sit for several seasons before actually stepping in as a team's starting quarterback. Edwards' best season came in 2005, when he played in 11 games and threw for 17 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
