2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Armanti Edwards, WR, Appalachian State
We all remember Edwards slashing through a stunned Michigan defense during Appalachian State's 2007 opening season upset over the Wolverines. His performance (227 yards passing, 62 rushing and 4 TDs) that day catapulted him to the national stage. For the year, he completed 148 out of 221 passes for 1,948 yards and a 17-7 TD-INT ratio. He also rushed for 1,588 yards on 237 carriers (6.7 ypc) and 21 TDs. Edwards did not let up the following season as he once again was one of the most explosive weapons in all of college football; he had 941 yards on the ground (193 carries with 4.9 ypc), 11 scores, and threw for 2,902 yards (64.1 completition percentage) with 30 TDs and only nine interceptions. Despite mind-boggling numbers, Edwards had been discarded as a QB prospect by nearly all NFL talent evaluators; he is viewed as a WR/RB-type of athlete. There's little question he can make it as a situational wide out at the next level. He is a superior athlete with explosive speed (4.43) and very good running instincts and vision. Very elusive and agile, Edwards routinely makes the first man miss. He is great in the open field, has good (but untested) hands and is a tough competitor with a desire to improve. However, Edwards is rail thin with skinny legs. He has almost no experience playing receiver and will need time to learn. This is one of the most complicated prospects to project. Talent wise, he is nearly on par with Miami's Pat White. In fact, an argument can be made that he is a more polished passer than the former West Virginia star; A team will take a fly on him late. With time and effort, he could develop into an explosive (albeit part time) split out.
