Weaknesses: Lack of physical strength and ability to bang inside is his biggest weakness ... The biggest knock on Edwards will be his lack of physicality in the aint ... Edwards does not possess the skill set to be a small forward, so improving on his low-post game will be a necessity. Not a great athlete ... Cannot finish very well after contact … Does not display much elevation in getting rebounds … Slow in releasing his jumpshot … Does not regularly exhibit full repertoire of low-post moves ... Not a shot blocker… Loses his man on the offensive glass more than he should … Does not create contact in the post with enough regularity ...
Notes: Edwards is one of those players who should get a look from NBA teams even though he is likely to go undrafted ... With his above average ability to run the floor, shoot the mid-range jumpshot and consistently make free throws, Edwards has some potential for the next level, however his game appears to be better suited for Europe ...
Weaknesses: Lacks go-to post moves...Still is a bit skinny and needs to add strength so he can establish position more effectively ... Not aparticularly explosive leaper, but has good instincts and solid athleticism that can make him a legitimate shot-blocking threat ... Though he has a good midrange stroke, Edwards is hesitant to shoot the ball when he catches it at the high-post ... Only played 6.7 minutes per game as a freshman, so much of his tentativeness can be attributed to lack of playing time.
Notes: Edwards father, Earl, played in the NFL for 11 seasons. Edwards was a late bloomer who was being recruited by mostly mid-major schools until UConn offered. He has the size and skill set to be a very productive player, and with four years under Jim Calhoun coaching, he projects as a potential NBA prospect.
