Maybe...or injured...but


Byrd is a short, twitchy speed freak who has had some really bad luck with injuries during his 4 years in the league. He was a 2015 UDFA brought in by Carolina. PS for 2 years then he broke his arm vs the Pats running a reverse Oct.1, 2017 to go on IR then a mild hammy when he came off IR. He broke the same arm in the same place in 2018 to go on IR again. (Shades of Gronk)

He's also a KR and PR specialist with plus moves.

From Gil Brandt 4/1/2015

The Univ. of S. Carolina pro day was held inside Williams-Brice Stadium, which has a grass surface. It is important to note that 40-yard dash times run on a grass surface are historically 0.13 seconds slower than those run on artificial turf.
He ran the 40 in 4.28 seconds. Byrd had a 42-inch vertical and 10-foot-11 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.03 seconds, the three-cone in 6.6 seconds and the 60-yard long shuttle in 10.90 seconds, which is unheard of (that time is faster than any other time posted at the 2015 scouting combine). Byrd also had 13 strength lifts. Byrd -- who has a track and field background -- is a small guy with a lot of speed. With those kind of pro-day numbers, Byrd will be a minimum of a priority free-agent pickup for a team following the 2015 NFL Draft. Gil_Brandt.

He'll be a low budget, bargain basement speedster kind of gadget guy who might not make it out of TC healthy but while he's there he will damn sure test our DBs' speed and will. But, ya know, he was damn near free and one of these days one of BB's gambles is gonna pay off.

Besides, he's taller, stronger, quicker and faster than Tyreek Hill!!
