Overall

Tremaine Edmunds can play all three linebacker positions, but with his speed and skillset he is best suited to play in the middle. He has explosive closing burst and is a great tackler. Tremaine can read plays well and is a great run stuffer. At times he does lose his balance and he does need to work on getting off blocks. Edmunds is shaping up to be a 1st round pick and has the talent to make a big impact his rookie season.
