Edwards has good speed off the edge, but he really struggles against the run. Ideally, he's a 3rd down pass rusher exclusively. Edwards is the type of player that had big expectations on him coming out of South Carolina a few years back, but has yet to really develop into the pro envisioned. He's had success as a reserve in Detroit, but whenever the Lions ask him to do more in the starting lineup, he struggles.

I would hope the Falcons would steer clear of Edwards. We'd be much better off drafting someone than spending millions on a part-time player.

Although I will say this, all the players that have been disappointments in Detroit over the last 4 or so years, may not be exactly their fault since absolutely no player on that team has shined besides Shaun Rogers and Dre' Bly. So maybe, a change of scenery will help Edwards.
