Scouting Report
Considered one of the more reliable kickers in the nation, Byrum finished his collegiate career by making 60 of 80 field goals and missing just three of 186 extra points. His 123 points last season was three shy of SEC leader and Auburn teammate Cam Newton. Byrum's collegiate career ended when he connected on a 19-yard field goal with time expiring to clinch the BCS title game for the Tigers in a 22-19 win over Oregon on Jan. 10. His ability in the clutch might get the attention of an NFL team in the later rounds of the draft. However, he's likely to go undrafted due to his struggles on kickoffs and from long range. He may have to prove in training camp that can improve in those areas. Only five of his kickoffs resulted in touchbacks last season. Byrum's issues from long range were also evident on field goals, making 15 of 26 attempts from 40 yards or more. He was impressive inside of 40 yards, connecting on 45 of 54 chances over four seasons. That type of accuracy could play a role in him getting a chance to make an NFL roster.
