Full Name: Marvin Byrdsong School: Northwestern State Pos: OLB
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 248 40: 4.83 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Mississippi State transfer who posted 95/6.5/4 as a senior while also intercepting one pass.
Pos: Athletic outside linebacker with top range on the field. Quickly picks up pass coverage assignments, scrapes well laterally and will mix it up. Solid in run defense and zone coverage.
Neg: Not efficient, takes a lot of missteps and gets caught out of position. Slow shedding blocks once engaged. Off-the-field incidents led to his departure from MSU.
Analysis: Possessing adequate size/speed numbers, Byrdsong has potential as a backup linebacker at the next
level if he focuses on the task at hand.
