Drafted in the 2nd round (88th overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2012 (signed for $554,400)
At the outset of 2012, Edwards was more highly regarded than Rockwall teammate Steve Bean, who seemed destined to attend Texas. Now their positions have been reversed, with Bean figuring to go in the first two rounds and Edwards unlikely to go high enough to prevent him from becoming a Longhorn. If Edwards doesn't sign, he'll be draft-eligible as a 21-year-old sophomore in 2014. A switch-hitter, he stands out for his plus-plus speed and quick bat. He could develop gap power once he fills out his 6-foot, 180-pound frame, though a hitch in his swing leads to concerns about his offensive ceiling. Edwards plays shortstop at Rockwall but likely will move to center field at Texas or in pro ball. He has enough arm for shortstop but tends to flip his throws too much, and his hands are too hard for the infield.
