Bynum is a versatile cornerback who relies on good technique and smart play. He has shown the ability to play in the slot, as well as out wide. Bynum has the feet to mirror receivers at the line of scrimmage and the hand placement to disrupt routes. With smooth hips to turn and run, Bynum lacks the top-end speed, as faster receivers can pull away from him downfield.
He does a good job reacting to the run with willingness to support, but he has strength deficiencies and can struggle with block destruction. Bynum is versatile enough to fit both a man and zone scheme. Adding depth initially, Bynum has the skill to potentially push to be a starter later in his career.
