Draft Rewind 2014: Carlos Hyde, San Francisco 49ers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about CARLOS HYDE: Ohio State, 5117, 230, 4.61. Two-year starter. Urban Meyer’s first 1000-yard back. Runs with a jackhammer type attitude. He’s the hammer and the tackler is the nail. Runs with his shoulder pads over his toes. Can break the tackle of an unblocked defender in the backfield. A determined runner who can run through tackles. Will slam into the tackler and spin out for a positive gain. Tough to tackle one-on-one in space. He doesn’t go down with shoulder hits. A big downhill ball control running back who is tough and durable. Good contact balance. A good lead blocker for Braxton Miller as well as a solid pass protector that attacks the blitzer. Patient, powerful, and strong as an inside runner. Good vision and cutting ability. Can slide and burst off a defender’s tackle attempt. A workhorse North/South type back. Finishes his runs with strength. Has not taken many hits over his career with under 400 carries. Has some off field maturity issues and needs more consistency in his overall game. Lacks downfield shake and bake. 2013 stats: 1521 yds, 7.3 ypc, 15 TD, 16 rec, 147 yds, 3 TD. OSR:24/36. Second/third round. (A-32, H-9 5/8, BP-19, SS-DNP).
