If you were going to go down into your basement and make an inside linebacker with your chemistry set, you would probably come out with something pretty close to Silas Edwards. He is a prospect who brings all of the attributes you are looking for in a middle linebacker to the table. He has good size, runs well, is physical and is really a player that does not need to come off the field in any situation. He has nice recognition skills. He has excellent lateral mobility and body control. He can side step and slip through blocks. He makes it very difficult for blockers to get a shot on him let alone a clean one. He quickly flows to the ball and does a nice job of getting over the top of blocks. He can sift through the wash to play sideline to sideline. He has enough burst and short area change of direction skills to take run through lanes and chase ball carriers down. While his athleticism allows him to often avoid contact, he is a physical player at the point of attack. He will step up and take on lead blockers. In space he uses his hands well to quickly engage and shed from blockers. He takes smart angles to the ball and has a nice motor. He is a sound tackler who can make the play in space and is capable of bringing the wood. He is an effective blitzer who can hit a seam and displays the ability to use his hands to help him defeat blockers. He can drop into coverage and make plays on the ball. You would be comfortable matching him up with backs and tight ends. Silas is an excellent overall linebacker with playmaking ability. He should be a player who is capable of making an impact early in his college career.
