A quick look at Panthers WR LaRon Byrd:

Height: 6-4.

Weight: 225.

College: Miami.

NFL experience: Third year.

The scoop: The Louisiana native has a big frame, good speed and has gotten off to a fast start at camp. Byrd hasn’t done much in his other NFL starts. He spent last season on the practice squads in Atlanta and Washington and has appeared in just five NFL games, including four as an undrafted rookie in Arizona in 2012. Byrd is a longshot to make the opening-week roster, but he’s making catches and giving himself a chance.
