Carlos Hyde

If not this year, perhaps next year, Lattimore, Hyde, and Millard will be in the backfield together.

Absolutely love this guy. Best RB in this draft and will be a stud in the NFL. Very similar to Eddie George.

But I will punch a baby if the Niners draft him in the 2nd.

You punched that baby yet, video or it didn't happen...
How about Boldin and Davis wide with Millard and Miller on either side of Kap and Hyde lined up deep? We all know Harbaugh and Roman like smash mouth, but until this year they didn't have anybody other than Miller in the backfield that could catch a pass while moving and not facing the QB, now we have Miller, Millard, Hyde, and Lattimore.

And we can, for the first time in a long time, change it up with Ellington, Patton, and Johnson lined up with Davis and McDonald lined up tight and Kap alone in the backfield in shotgun.

When time comes for Lattimore(assuming he is healthy) and Hyde to take over for Frank I'm going to dub them" Run and Hyde".

That is the opposing D should "Run and Hyde "not the Niners if course lol.
Pros: Great at setting up blocks, and amazing balance.
Cons: Upright in the hole(and all the time really) not much shake in his lower body. Absorbs alot of hits.

Very similar to Lat, except Lat plays alot lower. Both not going to break alot of long runs.

This is okay, as long as the break a lot of long necks...
Anyone else notice how Gore was being used in the NFCCG as a blocker for Kaep is very similar to what Meyer does at OSU. Watch the Orange bowl Hyde excels at it.
He doesn't break many long runs but neither does Eddie Lacy. Additionally, he didn't break many long runs in college but still averaged 7.3 YPC which is out of this world. Yes he ran a different offense under Urban but he was productive under multiple coaches, using different schemes. He averaged 6.6 against Michigan State's D last season and anyone who watches Big X football knows how good that D was last year. 8th in the nation against the rush, Hyde averaged 6.6 YPC against them. The guy will be a beast.
Gore has never had great speed either, but he lead the league in 20+ yard plays at least once. When the opponent stacks the box to stop you if you get to the second level there is a lot of room to run.
Why do Ohio State running backs suck so much in the NFL?
Eddie George didn't suck.
He will be a beast past Ohio St RBs don't predict future Ohio St RBs success. Don't be silly.

I hate Ohio State as much as anyone but I don't buy into those types of generalizations about USC WRs, Tetford coached QBs (prior to Rodgers), Penn State RBs, etc. Talent is talent. Eddie George and Rob Smith could ball, Wells was solid but always injured, Clarett was a head case and later round pick (3rd rounder). I don't think they've had a bevy of early round busts. If the guy can play, his school doesn't matter.
People compare him to Lacy but when i watched both he and Lacys highlights, Lacy looked much more powerful and explosive. Still love the pick though.
