    Not bad for a 7th rounder.

    Wish we could find a 7th round QB turned receiver to do that.

    I get what the OP is getting at with Edleman, but like others have said, he'd be wasted here.

    It's obvious he is a short area guy who runs a ton of short option and crossing routes...we'd just be sending him on 9 routes on most of his plays.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    This is exactly right. There are only two types of receivers that can be productive in this offense. Big, physical receivers that can out muscle DB's for the ball and athletic freaks that have speed and size to create their own seperation. Receivers like Edelman are not utilized properly here. Edelman is a nice fit to the Patriots offensive scheme. He would be a nice fit in a west coast offense. Here? I doubt it.
