Edwards was a project pick when we took him so it's not entirely surprising that progression is being made in his case. Think about the fact that what he's doing is attempting to use his athleticism to convert to an entirely new position that he hadn't played before to my knowledge at any level consistently....ever.

I mean, small details that EVERY SINGLE OTHER player came into the combine and into their team camp with a certain set of skills inherent to the position. AE had none of that other than what he potentially heard from fellow WR prior to showing up. Hand position, route running, catching the ball properly, head fakes, body fakes, quick feet.... everything you look for in a WR was foreign to him at camp last year.

We can blame John Fox as much as we like, but Fox didn't create the problem nor did he create the expectations of AE with his draft position. That was Hurney that did that. He wasn't ready to see the field last year and pressure from upstairs probably made it happen. Fox probably resented that and thus the verbal backlash at him upon his exit.

Even in the best case comparisons like Ronald Curry and Antwaan Randal El you have guys that took a few years to develop. Curry caught 5 passes total his first two years in the league. Randal El was used primarily as a returner his first few years despite catching 80 passes total those two years. He only had 1 start to his credit those two years.

With these players, you just have to be patient and wait for the position to become natural to them. The pure athleticism will get them places if you give them time.

For those of you who will be at practice today...can somebody give an update on the RG position please? I know Schwartz has been starting there, but is anybody pushing him? What about Zeimba? Have they tried him inside yet? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

We haven't heard anything on him because he hasn't done anything worth mentioning. He is our 5th string WR at best.

Actually he was returning punts and several of the guys who have went said he looks really good - fast and quick, but AE has been the main attraction, so we haven't heard a lot about him.

I think he's gonna be on the opening day roster. (It's 54 this year right?)
