Edwards redshirted as a true freshman in 2008, which wasn't that bad of an idea. LSU already had current NFL player Tyson Jackson and former Seattle Seahawks seventh-round pick Lazarius Levingston ahead of him on the depth chart.
The talented defensive end did make an impact his redshirt freshman season after Jackson moved on to the Kansas City Chiefs. He recorded two sacks and 23 tackles in a part-time role.
In 2010, Edwards took over for the injured Sam Montgomery and started seven games. He helped anchor a defense that ranked second in the SEC in scoring and 11th in the nation. Interestingly enough, that unit possessed seven current NFL players and a handful more who are about to make the jump this upcoming season. Talk about being stacked.
Many were expecting big things from Edwards this past season, but he really didn't live up to expectations. While he did record 4.5 sacks, it just wasn't the breakout campaign that many had expected from him.
