Strengths Weaknesses

Byndom's lean frame allowed him to be pushed around by some of the bigger, more physical receivers in the conference, but his agility and hand-eye coordination quickly established him as a cornerback to think twice about challenging. --Rob Rang

Player Overview

Considering the pass rush in front of him, as well as the strong coverage over the top typically supplied by FS Kenny Vaccaro, it might be easy to chalk up Byndom's breakout 2011 performance to his riding the coattails of his talented peers ... if this corner didn't demonstrate the speed and fluidity to intrigue NFL scouts on his own accord. Byndom saw time as a true freshman (20 tackles, one pass breakup), but some close to the program were nervous whether he'd be able to handle operating on the edge against a Big 12 schedule that ultimately featured three quarterbacks (Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden) selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Starting the first 13 games of his college career, Byndom had 58 tackles, 15 passes broken up, eight tackles for loss, and two interceptions -- including one returned for a 58-yard touchdown against Tannehill and the Aggies to earn him the Big 12's Defensive Player of the Week. Byndom was named first team all-conference honors by the media.
