Obviously it's a bit early to be projecting what he can do, but saying he gets drafted by a team like Cleveland what do you see him doing? I watched him for two years at Ohio State and have to say he has the slashing speed and power to make a successful NFL career. Many are comparing him to a faster Eddie Lacy. I think for a fearless forecast if he went to Cleveland would be 300 total touches, 1200 total yards, and about, 7-10 total touchdowns.

I really wasn't impressed with him until this year.  And I'm not super high on tearing up Big Ten defenses.  My only question is if he can be a contributor in the passing game.

He seems like a great fit for the ZBS.  But he comes off more like an Alfred Morris type, which is solid, but I'd like a more well-rounded guy in Cleveland.

Or, pair him up with multi-tool guy.  If Charles Sims falls, I'd be all over him.

I gotta disagree. Cleveland needs a viscous power back that can get them yards and keep defenses honest. Hyde can catch out of the backfield, but he isn't a Darren Sproles. His type of running is very violent and I could just see him tearing up the field. Maybe it's the Ohio State/Cleveland nut in me that's screaming out stud, but everywhere I've read has labeled him and Watkins the odds on favorite right now to be top FF rookie choices.

I can't say that I watched him much in college, but any concerns with injury/durability?  Not a crazy amount of carries in college which is good, but would he hold up in the NFL?

None at all. He missed the first three games and after was force fed the ball usually 15-30 times a game. Never checked out or had any injury concerns what so ever.

Who ever has been saying he's a faster version of Eddie Lacy is just talking crap. Put video of Hyde and Lacy side by side and you'll know Eddie is quicker and has better lateral movement. He really looks like a slightly more athletic Lagarrette Blount, which might not be so bad. His landing spot will determine his rookie season production. He needs to go to a team that will be run oriented.

I think Hyde is way more athletic than Blount ever thought about being. I also think he has better lateral movement than Lacy. I seen little to none jukeness or get off me moves that Hyde has displayed. Granted Hyde won't be put on a top three offense, but I think the skill will be flashed.

Thoughts on Carlos Hyde in 2014? He was widely regarded as the top rb in the class before the draft. Gore is entering this season at age 31. Lattimore is a long shot to fully recover. Hunter is solid but not great. James isn't a true rb and likely to be cut. Then there is Hyde. Does he instantly become the number 2 rb?can he force his way into a timeshare in the San Fran power run game?

At 31 Gore figures to be near the end, but $6 million at a time when the 9rs just acquired Stevie's inflated contract says Gore remains lead back. How much work Hyde gets likely depends on his development, but Harbaugh routinely reduces Gore's workload late season so someone or some two will be getting more work. Until we see if Lattimore has returned to form from his injuries there's no way to call this one. My hunch is Gore, Hunter, Hyde, but I'm basing that more on the rumor mill that Lattimore doesn't have his former cutting ability than anything concrete.

Hyde has very little value this year unless Gore gets hurt. He will be the starter next season.

So San Fran has no less than five talented RBs on their roster now. This pick tells me that Lattimore's health may not be progressing as much as some sources have reported.
