Edwards benefiting from decision to stay

The 2004 NFL draft was one of the strongest in over a decade. The same can't be said for the 2005 class.

The 2004 NFL draft was one of the strongest in over a decade. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 2005 class. Even including some of the top potential underclassmen, the upcoming draft class still pales in comparison. By my estimation, the top pick from the 2004 class graded out higher than the potential top selection in the 2005 draft -- at 10 of the 13 major positions.
