Jairus Byrd, Oregonâ€™s quick defensive back who did not participate in the Ducksâ€™ pro day, held a private workout for scouts Thursday indoors on FieldTurf. He has decent size at 5-foot-10, 201 pounds, and impressive change of direction with a 4.10 short shuttle and 6.75 three-cone drill, but lacks pure speed as he ran a 4.68 and 4.69 in the 40. He also had a 35-inch vertical and did 15 bench press lifts.
You've got to wonder if the groin influenced his time. I wasn't expecting 4.4, but 4.68 doesn't match up with the speed he played with at Oregon and it doesn't fit with a 35 inch vert really, either.
