Hyde wouldn't have been my first choice in the 2014 NFL draft if I was looking for a lead RB for my team. Carlos is a pure power North/South runner with limited speed (4.66 forty yard dash at the 2014 NFL combine) and no real value in the passing game. Ohio St. ran most of their plays out of the shotgun with Hyde anchored at the quarterback's hip. He showed power and some acceleration when he broke into the open field. Carlos doesn't have enough speed to beat a defense around the corner. He will only be a two-down back, and I wasn't impressed with his blocking. He rushed for 1521 yards in his senior year at Ohio State with 15 TDs. Carlos caught 34 passes over three seasons for 271 yards and 4 TDs. His hands graded out better than expected at the 2014 NFL combine, but he has limited experience running pass plays out of the backfield. With the 49ers in 2014, Hyde rushed for 333 yards on 83 carries (4.0 YPC) with four TDs. He caught 12 of his 16 targets for 68 yards (5.7 yards per catch). In Week 1 in 2015, Carlos looked like an impact back with high upside when he delivered 182 combined yards on 28 touches with two TDs and two catches. Over his next five games, Hyde averaged 19 touches for 60 yards per game with only one TD and nine catches. His season ended in Week 7 due a left foot injury that required surgery. The 49ers' RBs attempted 313 rushes in 2015 for 1103 yards and five TDs plus 87 catches for 679 yards and on TDs on 125 targets. This season San Fran will attempt over 400 rushes, and Carlos should be in line for the bulk of the action. He has an excellent chance at 300+ touches for 1400+ combined yards with about a half-dozen TDs and some value in catches, which paints him as an RB2.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
4.12 Benny Ricciardi - At this point I needed to start filling out the rest of my roster. Hyde was my top back left on the board and I am happy with him as the 48th overall pick.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
4.03 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - I have him projected as a top twelve back. He should be more involved in the passing game under Chip Kelly’s offense and with the offense running so many plays, he should receive more opportunity as well.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.10 Scout Fantasy - Dr. Roto - Yes, I am buying the hype train. Tommy G loves him too if that means anything.
