A few weeks ago, Raiders rookie second round pick Mario Edwards got his first start. This week he led all defensive linemen in snaps. It's clear the team is liking his versatility and keeping him in the lineup regardless of whether they choose to run the 3-4 or the 4-3.

His versatility was part of what attracted the Raiders to him coming out of Florida State. He can play a 3-tech defensive tackle and stop the run or he can play 3-4 defensive end and rush the passer.

These days, he also able to keep his energy up and move around better because the Raiders had him bring his playing weight down from over 300 pounds to around 280.

His increased speed and agility was noticeable especially on a play where he rushed up the middle only to have the quarterback throw to running back Chris Ivory on a screen. Edwards went from the offensive backfield and chased down Ivory and laid a vicious hit on him. Edwards also had a tackle for loss on third and one to end the Jets first drive and force them to settle for a field goal.

He finished with 4 tackles in the game.
