2012 season recap: Initially began the season with plans to redshirt, but an early season-ending injury to Brandon Jenkins changed everything. With depth an issue, the redshirt came off and Edwards was pressed into duty. He progressed as the season went on and eventually started in the ACC Championship Game after an injury to Cornellius Carradine.
Future forecast: Formerly the nation's No. 1 prospect, Edwards showed glimpses of his talent for Florida State this season. There is every reason to expect him to make a major impact next season on the defensive line.
