Bengals Add Pieces Around Joe Burrow in Fresh 7 Round Mock Draft
Weight: 212 lbs.
Bryan Edwards has been largely overlooked in this year’s class of wide receivers mainly because he injured his foot before the scouting combine. Now that he’s nearing full health, the Bengals should consider him in round 4 of the draft.
He’s been an extremely consistent player over the course of his career. In his past three campaigns, he’s racked up right around 800 yards receiving and hauled in 18 touchdowns over that span.
The South Carolina native is known as an all-around player, which will work well for what is a crowded wide receiver room in Cincinnati at the moment. He’s got the speed, power, and finesse to carve out a role right away and then eventually develop into a bigger part of the offensive gameplan.
He’s played well against some of the top competition the SEC has to offer, despite being surrounded by talent and a system that is less than ideal. Place him into an NFL offense and take into account that he still has plenty of room to grow, and there’s reason to believe he can take yet another step in his production.
Edwards would be a great addition to the wideout position group and give Burrow a young weapon to grow with.
