Draft Scout LaRon Byrd News
12/28/12 - WR LaRon Byrd (knee) has not practiced this week. The team's fourth receiver, Byrd will be replaced by another rookie, Kerry Taylor, on Sunday.
08/12/12 - WR LaRon Byrd, a rookie free agent from Miami, continues to take advantage of every opportunity he's given. Byrd caught three passes for 33 yards against the Chiefs, all coming in the final possession before halftime. Byrd (6-4, 220 pounds) is similar in size to Larry Fitzgerald and rookie Michael Floyd. He's caught the ball well, and his blocking has been decent. Byrd is contending for a spot on the roster as the fifth or sixth receiver. The key for him will be if he can contribute on special teams. That's not an easy thing to do for a tall receiver who isn't accustomed to those duties. Byrd is competing with DeMarco Sampson, who is in his second year, and Stephen Williams, who is in his third, for a roster spot. Byrd hasn't been flawless. He ran the wrong route early in the Chiefs game, resulting in an incompletion.
08/05/12 - WR LaRon Byrd has made an impression in training camp. He's big (6-4, 220) and has shown good hands. It's a tough roster to crack at receiver, however, and Byrd has a long way to go.
01/21/12 - EAST-WEST SHRINE WEDNESDAY: WR LaRon Byrd, Miami (Fla.): Byrd came back from a rough Tuesday practice to become the second impressive Hurricane on the field. At nearly 6-4 and 224 pounds, he took advantage of his size Wednesday, elevating and high-pointing several passes over the defensive back in coverage. After a forgettable senior season, Byrd is helping his draft stock. (Miami tight end Chase Ford continued to be impressive in practice.) - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
