i've followed Byrd through his career at South Carolina--
my impressions over the course of that would be:
he's tiny, will need to pack on some weight to not get absolutely destroyed in the NFL.
he's a great deep threat, but the Gamecocks rarely had someone who could hit him in stride, which I think Cam could do all day long.
this last year, he did show that he was more than just a "Go route" kind of guy, but as others have reiterated, lots of work for him to do there.
I feel like if we are able to give him a 'redshirt' year on the practice squad, if he bulks up/gets a little bit stronger, and starts to learn how to run better (more diverse) routes, he could be a sneaky good deep threat.
With athletes all over the field for the Gamecocks, everyone always said that Byrd was hands down the fastest guy on the team, FWIW.
