Terrell Edmunds was the second of three brothers to enter Virginia Tech back in 2014. After a standout high school career at nearby Dan River High School, Terrell redshirted his freshman year. He started his Virginia Tech career out at corner before moving to safety the last two seasons. Edmunds played in 37 games during his VT career, starting 31 games.

For his career, Edmunds tallied 182 total tackles, including 6.5 for loss and picked off six passes. He also finished with 14 pass break-ups and 20 passes defended. He received some type of All-ACC honor in each of his three playing seasons in Blacksburg.

While much of the talk surrounding draft-eligible Hokies centers on Terrell’s younger brother, Tremaine, the defensive back is generating plenty of his own interest. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, some teams covet Terrell Edmunds and he wouldn’t be surprised to see him sneak into the bottom of the first round. He sees teams like the Panthers, Titans and the Steelers as potential fits.

Will Terrell actually get into the first round? I wouldn’t count it, although Hokie Nation would love to see it. One thing is for sure; those projections viewing him as a fourth-round pick or later, are inaccurate.

Much like Tim Settle, I would expect some team to get Terrell Edmunds on Friday in the second or third round. His experience and versatility are going to make some team very happy at the next level. Terrell’s 2017 film isn’t his best. Early in the season, he was caught out of position on numerous occasions, leading to some big plays allowed. He was hurt later in the season and missed the last three games.

The NFL loves Virginia Tech defensive backs. And rightfully so. Expect Edmunds to be the next in a long line of talented Hokie DBs to thrive at the next level. His athleticism, versatility and experience will help him this weekend.

We here at Gobbler Country wish nothing but the best for Terrell in the draft and beyond.
