Terrell Edmunds Draft Profile

Terrell Edmunds draft profile

Strengths:

  • Leadership qualities
  • Impressive combination of NFL size and quick-twitch movement
  • Former cornerback with sudden burst from lateral transitions
  • Has size and cover talent to carry pass-catching tight ends around the field
  • Looks for work as tackler
  • Soft hands
  • Handles contain when called upon and lets teammates flow to the ball
  • Special teams ace
  • Athletic bloodlines from father to mother to siblings

Analysis: While younger brother Tremaine Edmunds may get the headlines in this year’s draft, Terrell Edmunds is a quality prospect in his own right. Like his brother, Terrell possesses high-end speed and explosion traits that are coveted for his position. He has man cover talent against big targets and should step right into a role on the coverage units for special teams. A former cornerback, Terrell Edmunds understands how to cover and has the lateral quickness to stay with the majority of tight ends in the NFL. He is a willing tackler, although he deals with his inconsistencies in that area (something we will touch on in his weaknesses). If he has to sit and learn when he first comes into the league, he will be able to contribute on special teams and has Pro Bowl ability as a special teamer.

Weaknesses:

  • Missed open field tackles have dogged him
  • Takes inconsistent angles to the ball
  • Too aggressive in response to route fakes
  • Lacks desired instincts and feel for deep coverage
  • Fails to find football when his back is to the ball
  • Bites and gets forced into recovery mode

Analysis: Terrell Edmunds will hear his name called many rounds after his younger brother because there are some obvious holes in his game. Terrell is at his best near the line of scrimmage and has eventual starter potential, but inconsistencies as an open field tackler may be a cause for concern in some NFL war rooms. His angles to the ball carrier are bad at times, completely running himself out of the play. On tape, he has a bevy of missed tackles in the open field, ducking his head too often and lunging out with just a prayer he will get his man. He is also over-aggressive in coverage at times, biting on play fakes, pump fakes, receiver fakes etc. He fails to find the ball when his back is turned, causing him to lose his fair share of 50-50 balls. Forced into recovery mode too often.

Size: 6’0 217lbs

Draft Grade: Early Day 3 grade
