Bryan Edwards returning to form as 2020 NFL Draft approaches
It’s too bad NFL teams won’t have an opportunity to examine Bryan Edwards in person as South Carolina’s outstanding receiver is reportedly returning to form as the 2020 NFL Draft is quickly approaching.
Nearly two months ago, Edwards shared the unfortunate news that he had broken his foot during his preparation for the draft.
“Unfortunately, I broke my foot preparing for the combine and will need a couple months to recover,” Edwards shared back on Feb. 21. “This has been extremely disappointing for me. Just because how diligent I worked to get back to 100%. But that’s life, I’m no stranger to adversity or hard work. I did not write this for attention, I just wanted to have something to look back on when I catch those dreams I been chasing since a youngin!!!!”
That news came after Edwards’ college career came to an abrupt end at South Carolina as the senior receiver did not get the opportunity to finish his Gamecock career on the field.
During his time in Columbia, Edwards caught 234 passes (which is the most in program history) for 3,045 yards and 22 touchdowns. Edwards also showcased outstanding run blocking skills, something that should greatly improve his NFL stock, and his return skills while playing for the Gamecocks.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport shared the latest news on Edwards’ status on Thursday as NFL teams have begun to get a look at the former Gamecock receiver in action following his recent injury.
“South Carolina WR Bryan Edwards, who fractured his fifth metatarsal before the Combine, has his boot off now and is moving around well, I’m told. Teams were just sent updated images and scans of the Day 2 WR, who is the Gamecocks all-time leader in receptions.”
That’s good news for Edwards, who could prove to be one of the biggest steals in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.
