Arizona Cardinals running backs could collectively lead NFL
When this rookie was drafted back in April, not many knew about him. The back from Fordham was definitely known around those parts. Now we see why.
He plays hard and can find holes. He proved that in the preseason. His size doesn’t really lend itself to the belief he is a pounder but he proved otherwise in a couple of goal line situations in preseason weeks one and two.
He’ll be the first guy off the bench to spell Johnson when he needs it. Edmonds is likely to be left in for short spells at a time, not just a play here and there.
Edmonds is perfect for the Cardinals because he will allow the Cardinals to not overwork Johnson and keep him sharp for late game situations. There aren’t many rookie backups in the NFL that can say that.
I won’t say expect to see him split time with Johnson but he may end up getting out there 20 to 25 percent of the time or even more. We should be talking about him a lot in 2018.
