Before the season began he was named a first team All-American by The Sports Network, Athlon College Football Preview, Phil Steele's FCS College Football Preview, and Beyond Sports College Network. He was also named the No. 2 FCS wide receiver in the country by Phil Steele's FCS College Football Preview.

Edwards also tried out for the New York Jets before signing with the Cardinals.
