As we continue our daily countdown towards the 2007 season, we want to dedicate this post to #53 Jeff Byers. This season Byers will step forward at Center in hopes of replacing Ryan Kalil. Byers played at left guard in the 2005 season but has suffered some injuries the last two seasons. We're hoping Byers has made a full recovery so he can help anchor the Trojans overpowering offense line. The 6'3" junior will be a dominant force if he can show some of the form he showed his freshman year.
Jeff Byers qualifies as a beast here at USC Sports Talk. We've seen this guy dominate opposing defenders and there's the infamous image of him drinking beer out of a blender. Byers is capable of pancaking opposing defenses. Our running backs will have the luxury of running through the wide holes opened up by Sam Baker and Jeff Byers. These guys will leave a path of destruction in their wake. It'll be fun to see Byers mauling people in the trenches this coming season.
