After two seasons spent mostly on the Panthers practice squad, WR Damiere Byrd is looking to land a full-time role on the final 53 man roster this year. 

The former South Carolina Gamecock did get on the field in the regular season finale at Tampa Bay last season. 

He caught one pass for 16 yards, and also returned a kickoff 31 yards. 

His superior track speed makes him a candidate to fill some of the void left behind with the departure of Ted Ginn Jr to New Orleans.

I caught up with the super fast Byrd at training camp. 

You can listen to the interview here where he answers the question of whether he is the fastest of the 90 players at Camp Wofford.
