Are the Bears never supposed to draft a Michigan player again just because Terrell was a bust? A-Train did well for us.
You're right that the Bears should not avoid Edwards just because he's from Michigan. The problem, though, is that a lot of what I read about Edwards says, although he's very talented, he drops the easy balls, is occasionally immature and doesn't always have his head in the game. The Bears already have a guy fitting that description.
Hopefully the Bears have looked at him enough to decide if he can develop the maturity and consistency it takes to succeed in the NFL. The more I read about Mike Williams the better he sounds. He has his issues too, but I think in some sense the Bears are afraid of another Terrell-like mistake and may go with Williams.
