 Marvin Byrdsong Grade: 2.61
 Position: OLB
 Class: Sr
 School: Northwestern St
 Conference: Southland
 Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 248
 40 Time: 4.83

BIO: Mississippi State transfer who posted 95/6.5/4 as a senior while also intercepting one pass. Started 12 games at MSU as a junior.

POSITIVES: Athletic outside linebacker with top range on the field. Quickly picks up pass coverage assignments, scrapes well laterally and will mix it up. Solid in run defense and zone coverage.

NEGATIVES: Not efficient, takes a lot of missteps and gets caught out of position. Slow shedding blocks once engaged. Off-the-field incidents led to his departure from Mississippi State.

ANALYSIS: Possessing adequate size/speed numbers, Byrdsong has potential as a backup linebacker at the next level if he focuses on the task at hand.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
