Las Vegas Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs: 3 Raiders to watch in Week 10
Bryan Edwards, Wide Receiver
Fellow players and coaches have had huge expectations for second-year wide receiver Bryan Edwards, and as one of the few players left from the 2020 draft, he needs to perform to somewhat salvage that draft. In the offseason workouts, he got compared to players like Randy Moss and Davante Adams, but he hasn’t been performing like any one of those players so far.
He doesn’t get enough separation in quarters one through three, and really only does his damage in the fourth quarter and overtime, which of course is the most important time of the game. However, Edwards really needs to work on catching the ball as well, as he has been struggling with drops throughout the season.
Even with the official signing of Desean Jackson, the release of 2020 first-round pick Henry Ruggs demands the necessity of Bryan Edwards to emerge as the wide receiver one. Edwards has the talent and size to do just that, he just needs to start putting together four good quarters of football.
