Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Originally played with the first team as a true freshman in 2004 but suffered hip and back injuries the following two seasons that kept him on the sidelines.

Positives: Hard-working position blocker who flashes ability on the move. Smart, displays terrific blocking vision, and plays with great awareness. Keeps his head on a swivel, helps out teammates and patient. Fires off the snap, quickly gets to the second level and seals linebackers from the action with body positioning. Redirects to defenders on the move and effective in motion.

Negatives: Gets minimal movement as a run blocker and struggles with big opponents. Lacks a dominant base and rarely finishes blocks.

Analysis: Byers is a hard-working lineman who?s overcome a lot of injuries to be very productive on the field the past three years. He offers potential in a zone system and has an upside if he can stay healthy.

Projection: FA
