Edwards, Kessler Pepperdine 6'7" 203 PF jr. 

Edwards is a right-handed forward that has an elite ability to jump quickly. His reaction time is truly special. He often blocks jump shots by opponents. Edwards averaged 17.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.2 blocked shots per game. Edwards shot 39.5% (career) from beyond the NCAA arc. He was very accurate at the foul line, making 87.6% in 2020-21. Edwards' shooting form is a little funky. He shoots it out in front of his face. He has a 6'11" wingspan. ...Edwards had more turnovers than assists but I enjoyed his feel for the game. He is willing to take a charge. ...We could see Edwards impacting an NBA game off the bench with his energy and overall defensive ability. 

 

Our best advice: in 2020, the 33rd pick was Bernard James. We advised, "draft Draymond Green."
