NFL Draft Scouting Report: Dion Byrum

Dion Byrum\CB\Ohio

Full Name: Dion Byrum         School: Ohio

Ht: 5-9.5    Wt: 175    40: 4.43    Yr: 5Sr

Pos: Explosive cover corner who displays consistent progress on the field. Flashes on the scene and fast up the field defending runs or screenplays. Strong at the point and mixes it up throughout the action. Has a penchant for the big play.

Neg: Seemingly loses a sense of where opponents are on the field.  Does not always display good awareness. Prefers to side shuffle rather than back pedal.

Analysis: Potentially a zone cornerback at the next level, Byrum flashes big-time speed. Effective on special teams, he'll get looks in the late rounds next April.
