Summary:

Vince Edwards is a productive, combination forward that may have a good set of all-around skills.  He can score in a variety of ways, and he has improved his jump shot every year to the point where he is a reliable knock-down shooter from beyond the arc.​

He also tends to make sound decisions with the basketball, and he also rebounds the ball well.  But he will need to improve his defense, and he can be quite prone to defensive lapses at times.​

Right now, Edwards may be a second round prospect for the upcoming draft.  With his skill set, combined with having a high basketball IQ, he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.​
