Ten NFL teams turned out Tuesday for Appalachian State’s pro day to watch Armanti Edwards, the next quarterback to be converted to another position as a pro.
Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald reports Edwards worked out as a quarterback, wide receiver, and punt returner. Edwards is just happy to be noticed.
“Beggars can’t be choosers,” Edwards said about his various roles.
At 5’11, 182 pounds, Edwards isn’t the ideal size for whatever position he will play next. Some teams are looking at him as a receiver, some as a special teamer, and others as a Wildcat-type quarterback. He ran in the mid 4.4’s and has four private workouts planned.
Edwards, who once had a day Michigan alums Rich Eisen and Adam Schefter will never forget, is the only player in NCAA history to pass for over
10,000 yards and rush for 4,000 more.
