Middle Tennessee St. DB Kevin Byard working out for Panthers, visiting Falcons, Chiefs, Packers
Middle Tennessee State defensive back Kevin Byard is having a busy week. He works out for the Carolina Panthers privately on Tuesday and visits the Atlanta Falcons on Wednesday, visits the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday and the Green Bay Packers on Friday. 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.
