Edmonds recorded 60 carries for 208 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in 20 of his 23 targets for 103 yards across 16 games during the 2018 campaign.

The Cardinals already had an established lead back (David Johnson) prior to the 2018 draft, but it didn't stop general manager Steve Keim from selecting Edmonds in the fourth round with the 134th overall pick. Outside of a two-score performance in a Week 13 upset win over Green Bay, Edmonds was unable to make much of a dent in Johnson's workload. A stagnant offensive scheme partly was to blame, but Edmonds earned double-digit touches just once as a rookie (Week 15 in Atlanta). With Johnson locked into a lucrative extension through the 2021 season, Edmonds likely will need an injury from the former to make much of an impact during his first NFL contract. On the other hand, Arizona's lack of other backfield talent makes Edmonds the top candidate to fill in for Johnson in that scenario.
