    View Draft Report
    A priority senior sign, Edwards is a 6-foot, 200-pound first baseman with power. Before he came to N.C. State, Edwards hit 17 home runs with South Carolina-Lancaster and in his two years in the ACC that power has translated. He hit 15 homers during his debut season with the Wolfpack in 2018 and through 56 games this spring, Edwards is hitting .335/.455/.609 with 12 homers, Edwards bats from an open stance and manages to stay balanced with a strong swing. Even though he is physically maxed out, Edwards moves well around the bag at first base and is a sound defensive presence on the infield. His polish, strength and track record make him an attractive senior sign after going undrafted in 2018.
