Kick return man?

looks like the only route he is used on is the deep

 

that was the only route they needed against us, he is quick and we need some speed so if he can catch it, good.

One thing to keep mind is the beautifully-manicured grass field at SC's Pro Day provided a fast track that probably artificially the 40 times. RB Mike Davis, for ex, ran a 4.61 at the combine, and did this at the SC Pro Day:

Fast track at Williams-Brice. Pro Day. 40 times: Damiere Byrd

4.25 Mike Davis 4.38 #Unofficial

That's what sucks about Pro Days is they are run under different conditions, whereas at the Combine, everyone runs under the same conditions. Which is why Pro Day numbers are meaningless to a lot of people. On top of that the SC Pro Day was hand-timed by a handful of scouts that all had different times. Still, you see Byrd running by SEC defenders in his games, but a lot of those guys won't make the NFL.

Either Damiere Byrd ran the wrong route, or that pick out of his

end zone was off one of the worst reads Thompson has made

this year.

Byrd's speed is legitimate.

Found on Reddit:

No surprise there. Damiere Byrd was the HS national indoor champion in the 60m and a state champion in the 100m as a HS track sprinter. Kind of wish he would've done track in college as he could've potentially challenged for an NCAA championship. However, like a lot of former football players/track standouts he prioritized football over track.

To put into perspective how fast he is. As a senior Byrd beat Marvin Bracy in the 60m at the 2011 Brooks Invitational. Presently, Marvin Bracy is one of the youngest professional track sprinters in the world and last year placed 2nd at the IAAF World Championships in the 60m and 1st at the US Indoor Championships. Marvin Bracy is one of the top 10 fastest sprinters in the US and Damiere Byrd was faster than him at one point.

Answer me this Cock fans: How is he out of the backfield? I can see from his stats Spurrier handed the ball off to him 22 times...is he an NFL option as a scatback?

I read he was SEC champ in the 60, plan on looking it up when i read his SC bio. Reminds me of Trindon Holiday, a little guy out of LSU that was a track star for LSU. Was a really good kick returner in the NFL except he fumbled too much

Yikes. Aggies' Elliot Pope pulls in the TD and mimics Damiere

Byrd 's bird hand-motion from Byrd 's TD a few mins ago. He

went there

What if Damiere Byrd was actually a bird?

Pete Scantlebury @ PeteScantlebury

Damiere Byrd makes a bird signal to the crowd when he scores.

No flag. Markus Golden places the ball down and points at the

crowd. Flag.
