Scouting Report
Hyde is hopeful of being a first-round pick and could be the first running back taken at the draft, but an injury kept him from displaying his speed at both the NFL combine and Ohio State's pro day. After an up-and-down first three seasons, Hyde entered 2013 as a late-round prospect with plenty to prove. It didn't get started very well, as he was suspended for the first three games by coach Urban Meyer as the result of an offseason incident at a Columbus bar. Hyde answered his critics by rushing for 1,521 yards - his 138.3 per game ranked fifth nationally - and 7.3 per carry with 15 touchdowns while adding three more receiving. He rushed for 1,677 yards over his first three seasons combined. Hyde is known more as a bruising back who is able to run through tacklers rather than around them. He hoped to prove he has breakaway ability through the 40-yard dash at the combine, but his official time clocked in at 4.66 in his lone attempt after pulling up with an apparent hamstring injury. Hyde was unable to run at Ohio State's pro day as well, and doubts still remain that he can pull away from defenders and run effectively outside the tackles. He's viewed as a late first- to second-round selection, though it may be a stretch to include him - or any running back - in the first round at this point.
