Kentucky redshirt senior Mike Edwards accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Edwards has been a stalwart for the Kentucky defense for the last four years, and he showed the ability to play close to the line of scrimmage with 9.5 tackles while also intercepting a pass and coming up with six deflected passes. He gets quality reviews for his ball skills and smarts, and both will be on display in Mobile this January. He has a real shot of being a Day 2 selection. Fri, Dec 7, 2018 05:01:00 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline views Kentucky redshirt senior S Mike Edwards as one of the most underrated draft prospects at his position.

"Edwards is a three down player effective stopping the run or covering the pass. He does not possess great size but has next level ball skills and he gets it between the ears," Pauline writes of the 6-foot, 200-pound Kentucky standout. The analyst hits him up with a third-round grade for the spring draft. Edwards has registered at least 95 tackles each of the last two seasons.

Kentucky redshirt junior S Mike Edwards will return to school for the 2018 season.

Edwards (6'0/200) is the second Wildcats defender to announce he'll be coming back in as many days, joining LB Josh Allen. For his part, the redshirt junior safety registered 97 tackles (4.0 for loss), a sack, four interceptions and seven passes defended during the 2017 campaign. Both the tackle and interception marks were tops on the team. He's picked off eight passes during his three active years at Kentucky, with seven of those picks coming over the last two seasons. Phil Steele named him an All-SEC second-team defensive performer for the past campaign.

SEC Country's Joe Mussatto writes that Kentucky redshirt junior S Mike Edwards "might be [the Wildcats'] top NFL prospect if he decides to leave."

Kentucky DC D.J. Eliot ticked off the skills in Edwards' toolbox last October, saying, "Mike is very smart. Mike is very athletic. Mike is our best cover guy. Mike is probably our best as coach says ‘football IQ’ guy on defense. Mike may be our best tackler. Mike may be our best blitzer." This past season, the 6-foot, 200-pounder recorded 100 tackles (5.5 for loss), three interceptions and eight passes defended while playing in all 13 of Kentucky's games. All of this fine work earned him second-team All-SEC recognition at the end of the season.
