They're not all bad, however, or an indictment on Edwards.
Some were scheme related (McBride, Pollard) while some appear to be talent related (Maxey, Stallings, etc).
There are definitely some mistakes in the last three years but there also some important building blocks, particularly from the '08 draft.
A few notes on Edwards 26 draft picks:
- Eight are starters
