Comparison

Gus Edwards Baltimore Ravens

A big, physically imposing back that has produced for three straight years at one of South Florida’s top NFL factories in American Heritage. Limited verified data available when it comes to testing and measurements, but is believed to be over 6-foot-1 and tipping the scales at least 225 pounds. Carries the weight well, and should be able to lean out once lifting in a college weight room as he adds even more strength. Owns a bit of an up-right run style, but is very difficult to bring down in the open field once he’s got a full head of steam with the combination of his size and power. Is quick to hit the hole and does a nice job of using swift cuts to evade would-be tacklers. Can also get out of trouble with a stiff arm here and there. Hasn’t been asked to catch a ton of balls throughout prep career, but has shown that he's capable of moving the chains via swing passes or screen passes. Has also proven to be rather effective in pass protection as he can chip large defenders while buying time for his quarterback. Top-end speed is a bit of a concern, but does his best to make up for it by making a difference in-between the tackles. Put up monster numbers as a sophomore eclipsing the 100-yard mark rushing in nine games, but missed some time as a junior due to injury as he has dealt with some shoulder issues. Should be viewed as a bit of a throwback running back that thrives in short-yardage situations and can make an impact on third downs as a pass blocker or pass catcher. Likely to carve out a role in an offensive system that favors a by-committee type of approach. Must stay healthy, but has what it takes to be a reliable ball carrier at a major Power 5 program.
