It appeared initially that Edwards was going to be buried on the Raiders' depth chart behind Henry Ruggs, Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow, but Williams' has been diagnosed with a torn labrum and is going to attempt to play through the injury after taking some time off. This opens the door for Edwards, who has been seeing regular reps with the first team and has earned praise (and "trust") from Derek Carr, who said that Edwards reminded him of Davante Adams, with whom he played at Fresno State. At South Carolina, Edwards finished his career with the third-most receptions and the fourth-most receiving yards in SEC history. He's an intriguing late-round pick given all the positive camp reports and Williams' injury.
