Air Force tailback Brad Edwards was the NCAA’s leading rusher in 2022.
Due to a service commitment, however, Edwards could not be selected in the 2023 NFL Draft.
That was, until this Saturday.
After meeting with President Joe Biden earlier this week, Edwards was reportedly granted permission by the Air Force to delay his commission. He can now be drafted and play this season, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Edwards tallied 1,728 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns last season with the Falcons, improving on an already stellar 2021 season in which he logged 1,356 rushing yards and 13 scores.
With that said, it’s currently unclear if Edwards will be picked on Day 3 this Saturday. Even if not selected, though, he could certainly find himself on an NFL roster this fall as an undrafted free agent.
We’re looking forward to seeing Edwards make the next step in his football career.
