Armanti Edwards, who led Appalachian State University to glory on the grid-iron, became a member of the Carolina Panthers Friday night.
Edwards, a two-time Walter Payton Award winner (the only repeat winner in the history of the award), was selected by the Panthers in the third round of the National Football League draft. The Panthers selected Edwards with the 89th selection overall.
The Panthers traded their second-round pick in 2011 to New England to select Edwards in the third round.
Jackson made those statements on WATA 1450 AM during the 11 o'clock hour Friday morning. The opportunity finally came with that third-round choice. Edwards, who is the only four-time All-America in ASU history, is also ranked second all-time in total yardage with 14,753. The late Steve McNair is the all-time leader with 16,853 (with Alcorn State from 1991-1994).
