Post-Draft Outlook:
A closer look at the Bills' picks: Round 2/42 -- Jairus Byrd, CB/FS, 5-10, 207, Oregon...With free safety Ko Simpson falling out of favor, the Bills landed a top college cornerback who has the size and ball-hawking skills to project as a safety in the NFL. Byrd, son of former NFL Pro Bowler Gill Byrd, finished with 17 career interceptions for the Ducks, with 53 passes defended. He's a natural playmaker and a reliable tackler in the open field. Isn't a fierce hitter, however, and struggles to keep his hands free, which gets him into penalty trouble. Lack of straight-line closing speed limits his man coverage skills and makes him a better safety prospect. - by The Sports Xchange

 Draft Scout *Jairus Byrd News
10/08/14 - S Jairus Byrd (knee) was officially placed on reserve/injured Tuesday (Oct. 7).
10/07/14 - FS Jairus Byrd, who suffered a knee injury in practice on Oct. 2 and underwent season-ending surgery, was inactive for Sunday's game.
09/07/14 - FS Jarius Byrd, signed away from the Buffalo Bills as a free agent, made his presence felt early against the Falcons. He stripped the ball away from wide receiver Julio Jones at the 5-yard line in the first quarter and the Saints recovered in the end zone. In addition to the forced fumble, Byrd had five tackles.
08/21/14 - S Jairus Byrd, the team's biggest acquisition in free agency this winter, was cleared to participate fully in practice for the first time since undergoing back surgery on May 29. Byrd, who started training camp on the physically unable to perform list, returned to work in the second week of camp but wasn't medically cleared for full contact until Monday. He hopes to play Saturday night against the Colts. On Tuesday, he was back at it and in his first two practices back showed why the Saints gave him a six-year, $54 million contract to team with second-year strong safety Kenny Vaccaro to solidify the back end of their secondary. Byrd had a big hit on running back Mark Ingram on Tuesday and on Wednesday night came up with two interceptions, showing the ball-hawking presence the Saints desperately needed last season even though they ranked fourth in the league in fewest yards allowed. "It definitely felt good to finally get that contact out the way, and get back in the swing of things and adjust to this heat out here. ... It's new," said Byrd. "Basically, the last step was getting clearance for contact," Payton said. "So now you're seeing him really with no limitations."
08/17/14 - FS Jairus Byrd, who's been brought along slowly after offseason back surgery, could be cleared to participate in team drills Monday. WR Marques Colston was back at practice Sunday after sitting out Friday night's preseason game for an undisclosed reason.
