The Bryan Edwards hype train was starting to pick up speed towards the end of last season. WIth him injuring himself before this year’s NFL Scouting Combine and with the deep class of wide receivers, he may see his draft stock dip a little bit.

That would be good news for the Vikings who could have the chance at landing the stud receiver later on in the draft.

Edwards is another one of those bigger-bodied receivers who can dominate at the catch point and also runs some clean routes. He won’t burn you with speed, but he’ll burn you with deceptive routes where he’ll get his hips turned one way while waiting for the defender to flip his hips so he can break the other way to lose his defender.

Edwards is also a guy who has very strong and reliable hands. He catches just about anything that’s thrown his way and he won’t have those simple concentration drops you hate to see.

He’s not going to be a Stefon Diggs-type of receiver and he won’t do the same things he did. But he is capable of being more of that Michael Thomas-type of player that can win in his routes with his big frame and strong hands.
