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
04/01/14 - S Jairus Byrd was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Saints from the Bills March 13.
12/09/13 - FS Jairus Byrd made his fourth interception and second in as many weeks. He is now tied for the team lead despite missing the first five games.
11/27/13 - FS Jairus Byrd insinuated that he may be more willing to work toward getting a long-term deal signed with the Bills in the offseason. "I'm just keeping my mind open," Byrd said. "The process is going to take care of itself and all I'm worried about is what I've got to do and that's play on the field." Byrd is playing under the franchise tag this season because he and the Bills could not come to an agreement on a long-term contract by the offseason deadline. Byrd conducted a lengthy absence from the team, missing almost the entire offseason before returning in late August to play for $6.9 million. With three interceptions in the last two games, he is rounding back into form and the Bills may be realizing how important he is to the emerging defense. "A lot of the questions that everyone's asking me, do you want to be here, I'm really not the right one to be asking the questions to," Byrd said. "It's not totally up to me, so like I said, it is what it is and I'm just focused on football and playing to the best of my ability."
11/18/13 - FS Jairus Byrd feels he's worth more than the Bills are paying him, and he made that stance perfectly clear in the offseason, leading to a contentious holdout that lasted late into training camp. The Bills used their franchise tag on the fifth-year free safety instead of giving him a rich long-term deal, and it created some ill will on both sides. Byrd then missed the first five games of the year because of plantar fasciitis, and many fans were ready for the Bills to deal him at the trading deadline and be rid of him. Well, Byrd has jumped back into the good graces with the way he has played since returning to the field, and against the Jets he became the first player in team history to record two interceptions and a sack in the same game. "I'm having a lot of fun," he said. "I've kind of gotten comfortable and a feel for everyone in the locker room. There are just great guys in here. ... A lot of people use that saying of ‘family,' but it really is. You can go out there and just play with your brothers out there and just have fun. There's nothing like it."
11/13/13 - --FS Jairus Byrd has made four of his 19 career interceptions against the Jets.
