Weaknesses: ​He is an undersized CB that will most likely be limited to the slot at the next level. He is much better in zone coverage than in man coverage. He will sometimes take false steps in press man coverage. He struggles vs bigger WR's as he will get overpowered and displays adequate long speed. He can sometimes struggle vs bigger backs as he will dive at their ankles and miss tackles.
Summary: ​Bynum best fits as a nickel corner at the next level. He can jump his way up to a top CB prospect with more slot experience and improving in man. He wins in zone coverage with his high FBI/instincts and ball skills. He is very physical and aggressive in coverage and in the run game. He is quite capable in playing press man but is better in zone. He shows very good route recognition and understanding of leverage. He will struggle to consistently play press vs bigger WR's. He has all the tools to be a 4 core special teams player.
