Packers could trade up for Tremaine Edmunds

Edmunds is a unique prospect. He is a 19-year-old player with two years of starting experience and high production (posting back-to-back 100-plus tackle seasons at Virginia Tech). He posses a great body at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds.

He has long arms, solid body control and a developing core strength. He has great sideline-to-sideline range, reacts well often chasing down ball carriers. Has the ability to line up in any of the LB spots (Mike Pettine loves diversity).

He is a much better blitzer than his career total of 10 sacks suggests. Great snap anticipation. Can dodge blockers and close quick on quarterbacks. He can also drop back into coverage against tight ends and running backs; he has loose hips and enough agility to stay with them.

Edmunds is still growing and can add muscle and mass without losing quickness. Good instincts even if still in developmental stages but has the potential to improve greatly if he applies himself.

Coaches like his work ethic and he had solid numbers at the combine. He posted a 4.57 40-yard time and put up 19 reps in the bench press. He has an extremely high ceiling and his ability to play multiple positions decreases his bust potential as well. I would love to see Edmunds in Green Bay.
