Under NFL rules, players declaring for early draft entry have 72 hours to withdraw and remain in school. The school says Byrd, a junior, will use that window to evaluate his decision.
The son of former San Diego Chargers cornerback Gill Byrd was a first-team all-Pac-10 selection this season. He intercepted five passes and was third in the conference in punt returns.
Byrd has 17 career interceptions, one shy of George Shaw's school record.
