Draft Scout *Tremaine Edmunds News
03/14/18 - On a rather frosty March mid-week morning, a large contingent of former Virginia Tech football players showed up for job interviews at the Hokies' weight room and also the Indoor Practice Facility. The headliner of the morning - and the reason why NFL personnel from all 32 teams attended - was linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, whose play this past fall enabled him to earn All-America honors and whose performance at the NFL Scouting Combine a few weeks ago drew rave reviews. Edmunds, who decided to forgo his final season at Tech and make himself available for the NFL Draft, ran a 4.54-second 40 at the Combine, while recording 19 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press and registering a broad jump of 117 inches. All that, of course, while checking in at 6-foot-5 and weighing 253 pounds. As a result of his performance at the Combine, Edmunds elected not to repeat any of those strength and conditioning tests. Instead, he only performed linebacker-specific drills.
"I just wanted to come out and display some of my talents," Edmunds said afterward. "Display what I've been working on, and show these coaches, show these scouts and everyone that came out, my abilities. "It's all been good. It's a process that you don't get back in life, so you've got to enjoy every bit of it. That's exactly what I've been doing. The good thing about it is that I get to do it with my brother [Terrell]. That makes it 10 times better." Many, if not nearly all, draft prognosticators - several with NFL experience - project Edmunds as a first-round pick. The first-team All-ACC choice led the Hokies in tackles with 109 and tackles for a loss with 14 this past fall, while also finishing tied for the lead in sacks with 5.5. - Virginia Tech Football
02/27/18 - 2018 NFL Combine: Must-see Prospects per Position: S Tremaine Edmunds, Virginia Tech, 6-2, 220, 4.58...Currently ranked 6th among SSs, 148th overall and a 4th-5th round value...Overshadowed by his younger brother (projected first-round linebacker Tremaine) at Virginia Tech, Edmunds could steal back some of the spotlight in Indianapolis, demonstrating the combination of size, strength and speed that have some scouts comparing him to another former Hokie -- Seahawks' four-time Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor -- the biggest (and hardest-hitting) safety of his respective class, just like Edmunds. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/26/18 - LB Tremaine Edmunds from Virginia Tech is projected as the ninth pick in the NFL Draft by NFLDraftScout.com's Dane Brugler, who writes: "A versatile linebacker, Edmunds can rush off the edge or play any of the linebacker positions in the 49ers' defense, giving the coaches options. He would also provide San Francisco with insurance in case Reuben Foster can't stay on the field, either because of injury or off-field issues."
12/01/17 - 2017 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): LB Tremaine Edmunds, Jr., Virginia Tech, 135 Votes,...One of five finalists for the Butkus Award, Edmunds turned in his second straight 100-tackle season for the Hokies and currently ranks sixth in the conference with 102 total tackles. His 14 tackles for loss rank third among ACC linebackers and eighth overall in the ACC. Edmunds, who leads the Hokies in tackles, TFL, sacks (5.5) and forced fumbles (3), helps anchor a Virginia Tech defense that paces the FBS with 16 Red Zone scores allowed and three shutouts. He earned ACC Linebacker of the Week honors following a 10-0 win at Virginia (11/24). - Virginia Tech Football
11/27/17 - Nov 27 Stock Report, Who helped themselves? Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech, JR. (6-4, 245, 4.82, #49)...Virginia's Micah Kiser is a smart, productive thumper who will play on Sundays, but with all due respect to him, the best NFL linebacker prospect in the Commonwealth Cup was Virginia Tech's Edmunds. He finished with nine tackles, including three for loss and a pair of sacks as the Hokies defense held the Cavaliers to under 200 total yards. Edmunds is a terrific athlete, especially for his size, but what truly stands out about his game is his ability to quickly diagnose the play. His reads consistently put him position to make plays, showing off the closing burst and finishing skills to disrupt the play design in its infancy. Edmunds needs to do a better job using his length and hands to work off blockers once he reaches the next level, but his athleticism, awareness and tackling ability are NFL starter worthy. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
