Draft factoid: Carlos Hyde toting the rock
By Pat McManamon
Draft day looms ever closer. As it approaches, it seems appropriate to start your day with a tidbit or two each day on draftable guys -- with an eye toward those the Cleveland Browns might select. All information is courtesy of ESPN Stats and Information.
Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde averaged 3.1 yards after contact per carry, one yard more than the average. That’s a statistically significant improvement over the pack, and shows Hyde's ability to run through tackles. He gained five yards on 57 percent of his carries, and failed to gain yards on just 12 of his 208 carries. The young man can run with the football.
