Middle Tennessee State DB Kevin Byard excels at Pro Day
Middle Tennessee State defensive back Kevin Byard had an outstanding Pro Day workout in front of 23 NFL teams, including one general manager. At 5-11 5/8, 212 pounds, Byard ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 and 4.51 seconds. He bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times with a 10-foot broad jump, a 38-inch vertical leap, a 4.20 short shuttle, a 6.73 three-cone drill. Byard is projected as a fourth round to fifth round draft target. After this stellar performance, Byard is regarded as an ascending draft prospect.
