Jairus Byrd CB Oregon #32

Ht: 5'10
Wt: 207

Has a nice compact build. Fairly strong for his size. Elite playmaker; excellent ball skills. Very good athleticism. Excellent quickness.
Straight-line speed is marginal. May be best suited as a nickel corner or a free safety. Short. Tackling ability is just average due to his lack of size.
Father, Gil, played cornerback for the Chargers. Byrd's playmaking ability will catch your eye on film, but when he isn't making a big play he's a fairly marginal cornerback. He may actually end up making the switch to free safety where his ability to read the field and come up with interceptions will be more valuable.
