Edwards has all the skills one can look for in a powerful guard. He has a beautiful jumper and can posterize defenders with his powerful dunks. He always proves to be a threat by drawing fouls and going to the free-throw line.

He is most effective when running down the wing, as he gracefully slides past the defense to complete his jumper or a layup.
