2019 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round pick out of Kentucky, Edwards brings versatility to the Buccaneers secondary. The rookie is capable of playing either corner or safety, and his impressive college resume speaks to his all-around skill set. Edwards finished his four-year Wildcats career with 317 tackles (190 solo and 21 for loss), 10 interceptions (including two pick-sixes), 23 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Edwards clearly has the potential to compile impressive IDP numbers in a full-time role, but that opportunity isn't likely to be within reach to open his first season unless projected starting strong safety Justin Evans remains hampered by the toe injury that shortened his 2018 campaign.

Inconsistent rookie campaign
STampa Bay Buccaneers
January 7, 2020
Edwards finished the 2019 season with 45 tackles (33 solo), one sack, six defensed passes and one fumble recovery across 15 games.
The 2019 third-round pick was in and out of the starting lineup during the campaign, but he seemed to be gathering momentum as the season came to a close. Edwards logged four of his six pass breakups over the last six contests and notched multiple stops in six of his last seven games overall. The Kentucky product will compete to retain a starting job in 2020, although the potential return of Justin Evans (toe) after a season on injured reserve could certainly prove an obstacle.
