Overview:

Byard has good speed, is a hard hitter, and has a non stop motor, as he does not give up on any plays. He was a pure ball hawk, a tackling machine, and a play maker on defense for Middle Tennessee. On the other hand, he is a bit undersized, and he struggles in coverage. With that said, I expect Byard to go somewhere on day 3.
