Next Chris Ivory? Maybe PT? ok a bit of wish full thinking there

This signing slip past me and quietly slipped pass most of the media as well.

Trey Edmunds Running Back, Virginia Tech/Maryland
6’1”, 220 lbs, 4.48

Analysis by Nolan Fleming

To help put this into perspective
He is a potential star in the making. Had to overcome injuries at Virginia Tech and Maryland, but was a star when healthy. He is raw with great potential to be an every down running back in the NFL.

His Strengths
Edmunds has great speed and explosion. He shows the ability to create quick space so he can get downhill fast. He has solid hands and shows the ability to be physical finishing runs.

Areas of Improvement
He must improve his pass blocking skills. He must continue to get reps catching the ball and running the ball to create space with his cuts.

We need a good power back and if he catches the ball well it's a big plus. I love the fact he has potental to be a 3 down back.

Re: UDFA Trey Edmunds the next Chris Ivory?

Having a RB depth chart of:

RB (4) 22 - Mark Ingram, 28 - Adrian Peterson, 41 - Alvin Kamara (R3, P67), 36 - Daniel Lasco

would allow us the "luxury" of developing a talented RB...

However, though some beat up on him, 38 - Travaris Cadet wears multiple hats for this roster; Kamara may make that moot, and Lasco was very capable before his injury...

Only expendable would seem to be 23 - Marcus Murphy despite having the physical talent of Darren Sproles, the mental focus and discipline just hasn't been there...

35 - Trey Edmunds (UDFA) has a familiar trait of many Saints players, an inability to stay healthy and available...

, but Edmunds size/speed combination and rare ability to squeeze through tight spaces as Pierre Thomas once did does offer a tantalizing book end to this developing competition...

FB (1) 29 - John Kuhn will make it especially hard to warrant any fifth RB even though we've done just that these past few seasons...

Hey, Bama fans, remember this run? Would make it easier to see him gashing it in the Black & Gold...

I like what I see. Good vision, good lateral quickness and looks comfortable catching passes out of the back field. Preseason will be big for him. Could definitely challenge Daniel Lasco for the #4 RB spot.
