He tweeted yesterday back to back "4.24 the record?....." And "don't let me get the invite"
Does anyone know what his 40 time is? And do they usually test those in the spring?
He ran a 4.26 out of high school, I believe. He's one of the fastest guys in CFB.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
D Byrd to the Raiders in the 2015 draft. Callin it now.
If the kid has a breakout year and will stick around for two more, I think he'll not only get the invite but likely pull a "Troy Williamson" at the combine. Byrd has the measurables. He just needs to prove that he's a football player, and he's had several opportunities and will have several more. He gets a B- grade in my opinion thus far but the kid gets separation nearly every time he runs a go, post, or corner route. I too despise Twitter...what happened to privacy? And why wouldn't everyone want at least SOME privacy?
Byrd's football speed is not the same as his track speed IMO
lmao spot on
Every raiders fan would agree
Maybe if Davis wasn't dead.
A WR with speed is useless without the ability to catch the football. I hope he puts in a lot of extra work with DT and Nosey over the spring and summer.
That's because he has to slow down and wait for the pass to get there.
I think he made some great catches this year, the UGA catch and the Michigan TD in particular. I also think he dropped some balls that he should've caught. Experience will make him more reliable in my opinion, and I agree, work with the qbs is essential.
This. The guy is a rocket on the football field. He glides, so you don't notice he's moving as fast as he is. He's the fastest guy on the field every time he steps foot on it.
he has to go full out on every play if he wants the ball thrown his way. in the clemson game there was one play were DT threw to him deep on the right side. he didn't run full out i guess cause he didn't think he was going to get the ball and the clemson player dropped the int. think it was around 3rd quarter. you could tell he wasn't running cause he had to speed up to break up the int. plus catch the ball better.
now it was one play so i don't mean this to sound like he loafs all the time and sorry if it does. i just watched again last night is the reason i remember.
We must understand that D Byrd was not a pure receiver coming out of high school. Same as Troy Williamson who came from a Wing T offense in high school where he scored on many plays because of his speed. It takes time to develop into a solid receiver at the SEC level when that was not your primary position in high school. Having to stop and re adjust your body because the quarterback does not or cannot get the ball out front is not always on Byrd. I can remember plenty of plays where Alshon made our QB's look good. However Alshon is 6'3 and Byrd is very short. Let's give this young man encouragement and not be so critical when our QB's especially Shaw who hesitates too long to throw. Someone with speed like Byrd, one cannot hesitate to throw it. Byrd needs passes where he can run up under not always having to stop and come back to catch it or break up an potential interception. Now he have dropped is share of passes but our QB's have short armed him just as many times.
Lay off the Byrdman. He'll fly high this year.
