Las Vegas Raiders: Analyzing the future for Bryan Edwards
Edwards continues to draw rave reviews
Coach Jon Gruden recently compared him to NFL Hall of Famers Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, whereas Quarterback Derek Carr compared him to DeVante Adams. These comparisons seem a little over the top, but they can be chalked up to regular offseason buzz.
The Raiders are clearly high on Edwards, especially since they basically handed him the starting role this offseason without any proof or substance that he can actually be productive on a high-caliber NFL offense. If Edwards plays well, the Raiders can be set at the receiver position for a long time.
However, if he gets injured again, it may be time to start bringing in insurance options. Marcell Ateman is the only other current traditional “X” receiver on the Raiders roster, so it seems more than likely that they need Edwards this year.
Edwards has the tools to match up with the top receivers in the game and become a high-level NFLer. The hope has to be that he’s not just another training camp star every offseason because there is little contact. If Edwards can stay on the field and be productive this season, the Raiders will be more than pleased, and this can be a playoff-caliber team.

If Bryan Edwards can stay healthy, he might just be able to reach his limitless potential and take the Raiders’ offense far. Carr, Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake, Edwards, Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow, and Darren Waller are a scary offense, but Bryan Edwards is the key.
