A quick look at Panthers WR Damiere Byrd:

Height: 5-9.

Weight: 175.

College: South Carolina.

NFL experience: Rookie.

The scoop: The undrafted speedster hailing from Gamecocks Land could be the fastest player on the team if you believe his 4.25-second 40-yard dash from his pro day. Byrd is also one of the smallest players on the team, so coaches will be looking to see how he works against press coverage since everyone knows he can outrun a defender. If he can win off the press, win in a hand fight with a defensive back and show he can take a hit or two during the three-week camp, Byrd could earn a spot on the team’s practice squad.
