BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter at both guard and center. Suffered from hip and back injuries during his career, which caused him to miss
POSITIVES: Byers is an undersized prospect whose injuries could throw up red flags for NFL teams. The ability to play several interior
blocking positions could help him find a spot as a backup in a zone blocking system.
NEGATIVES: Small, lacks the dominant base, and gets pushed back off the point by defenders. Rarely gets movement run blocking.
ANALYSIS: Explosive blocker who lacks the size to be anything other than a backup in the NFL. Fires off the snap, quick out to the second
level, and works blocks hard. Plays with good lean, displays ability as a position blocker, and shows terrific awareness on
the field. Patient in pass protection, keeps his feet moving, and works well with teammates.
