Technology is such a treat. You can build whatever you want. Take this Crusherbot I made. It is perfect. It has everything I need. Arachnid speed legs, Muttominium Steel as a shell and a photon cannon to target lifeforms everywhere.
Just release the Crusherbot and watch it destroy!
I bet that’s the way NFL defensive coordinators think about Tremaine Edmunds. It’s like some one built the perfect linebacker. Just put him on the field and watch him destroy offenses.
The Positives: Start with his size: 6’5, 250. Edmunds is a big rangy linebacker with speed. Edmunds ran a 4.54 40 yard dash at the combine which was 5th among linebackers at the combine. That rare combination of size and speed has NFL GMs salivating. Edmunds consistently displays quickness, ability and balance on tape.
Edmunds an play in multiple schemes inside and out. An underrated part of his game is his coverage ability. Edmunds is not the kind of linebacker that will need to come off the field on 3rd down. He’s also a good pass rusher. Edmunds had 10 sacks in the last two years of football.
Statistically, his best season was 2017, his junior year. Edmunds had 108 tackles, including 14 for a loss and 57 solo tackles. Most scouts think he will get even better in time. He is young and a little raw.
The Negatives: On paper he looks perfect. On film, with hyper analysis, you can see some minor flaws. Edmunds is a bit raw. The instincts aren’t always there – he some times takes false steps.
But the reality is most teams will accept that. The upside is just too strong and those instincts – they will come in time.
The Alien Dust: Edmunds is a special prospect with the possibility of becoming one of the best football players of the 2018 draft. He’s one of two linebackers, the other being Roquan Smith, that is battling to be the top linebacker in the 2018 draft.
I expect Edmunds to be selected right before the Dolphins pick at 11, but it is possible he is there at 11. Edmunds is one of a handful of players that might be available at 11 that is an elite prospect.
And wouldn’t that be something? If selected Edmunds would be following the footsteps of his father, Ferrell who was drafted by the Dolphins in the 80s. Ferrell Edmunds had a lot of quality years for the Dolphins catching Dan Marino’s passes.
If Tremaine Edmunds was an alien weapon of destruction – he would definitely be the a Crusherbot. Just release him on the field and watch him destroy!
