Draft Analysis:

  • 5'11" Height
  • 180LBS. Weight


Started in 39 consecutive games to end college career. 2013: Was a second-team All-Big 12 pick after starting in all 13 games. 2012: Started in all 13 games. Had 10 tackles and a 28-yard interception return for a touchdown in Red River Rivalry game against Oklahoma. 2011: Was an honorable mention All-Big 12 pick after tying for team lead with 15 pass breakups. 2010: Played in all 12 games on special teams and in six games at defensive back. High school: In addition to his football prowess (first-team all-state as a senior), Byndom was a first-team all-district baseball player and was a district title-winner in the 400-meter relay and long jump in track and field.



Looks the part with nice body length. Experience in off coverage. Good zone awareness. Hands to intercept. Experienced three-year starter. Has been durable and remained healthy. Solid character. Blazed a 4.35-second 40-yard dash at his pro day.


Not physical -- plays with a track mentality. Lacks press strength. Stays wired to blocks. Choppy pedal. Late transitioning out of breaks. Allows separation at the break point. Average recovery speed. Leaky run defender. Loses contain. Timid tackler and misses too many. Does not project as a core special-teams contributor.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Long, lean, non-physical zone corner who could compete for a job as a No. 5 corner, though his deficiency against the run could always be limiting.
