Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TREMAINE EDMUNDS: Virginia Tech, 6044 253 4.55. Junior entry from Danville, VA. Two-year starter with good length, production, and overall size for a linebacker. Projects at just about any linebacker position in any scheme. Was most often in the box for the Hokies. Very quick in his initial reaction and gets downhill into a gap with a decisive first step. Plays tight to the line and occasionally makes a wrong read. In rare occasions he can be over aggressive and take himself out of a play. Sudden to change direction with no wasted movement. Can redirect back into a play when out of position. Quick with his hands getting into a blocker. Stuns blockers with good knee bend to get separation. Sheds quickly working to the ball, rarely stays blocked. Has sideline to sideline range and takes good angles in pursuit. Solid in coverage with good technique in man and zone. Virginia Tech plays a lot of match coverage and Edmunds often covered a back out of the backfield and occasionally a tight end. Shows the ability to stay with a back and mirror cuts. Has the speed to cover deep. Good eye discipline keeping his focus on the receiver when matched up. Reacts quickly on the throw and can get in the throwing lane when in zone. Good awareness when playing zone showing a quick break on the throw. Very good blitz skill with quickness at the snap hitting a gap or blitzing off the edge. Shows an arm under move to get around the corner and has the speed to close. Hitting inside gaps he gets quick pressure up the middle. If used on the edge he will need to develop more technique as an edge rusher but has pass rush tools. Plays at a high level but still has upside. 2017 stats: 109 T, 14 TFL, 5.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 4 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 1.82, right 1.99. OSR:3/17. First round. (A-34 1/2, H-9 3/8, BP-19, SS-DNP).
