Graham Neil Edwards , nicknamed Jock, is a former New Zealand cricketer. He played eight Test matches and six One Day Internationals for New Zealand.
Jock Edwards was born in Nelson, and attended Nelson College. He was a short, stocky wicketkeeper who was a good enough batsman to make his Test debut against Australia in 1976-77 as a specialist. He was brought back in 1977-78 as a wicketkeeper-bat and made 55 and 54 on his comeback against England at Auckland.

He returned for three home Tests against India in 1980-81 where he chipped in with useful runs, but the emergence of Ian Smith signaled the end of his international career.
