Scouting Report

Overview

Bynum left Berkeley as one of the most consistent and battle-tested defenders in the country, starting 42 consecutive games and leading the Bears in passes defensed with 28 over that time. However, likely in large part because he has "just" six interceptions, Bynum has not gained much press. In 2019, he earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors despite recording only one interception to go with a career-high 63 stops as well as nine passes broken up.

Strengths: Coordinated athlete with good arm length and flexible hips to corral receiver. Quick in his drop, efficiently gaining ground out of a traditional backpedal and sidestep, maintaining close proximity to the receiver. Springs out of his stance in press. Savvy player whose film study shows in his route recognition, showing above-average awareness to undercut quick-hitters without getting sucked in by shoulder fakes. Technically sound. Though the majority of his play is outside, Bynum does have experience in the slot and played more of a safety role in some alignments in 2019, speaking to his preparation and football smarts.

Weaknesses: Lacks the wow factor from a size and speed perspective. Has a somewhat lanky frame with just average muscular development at this time. May prove a better athlete on the field than he is in workouts, but lacks an explosive element. Gets grabby in coverage, jostling with receivers throughout the route, sneaking tugs that occasionally get called.

Pro comparison: Levi Wallace, Buffalo Bills - Say what you will about their relatively slim frames and less-than-eye-popping athletic profiles, Wallace (6-0, 180) and Bynum possess the grit and smarts to make it among the behemoths and blazers in the NFL. But Bynum won't go undrafted like Wallace, who led the SEC in pass breakups as a senior.
