Air Force opened camp on Monday and several players we're surprised with position changes.
Hyder played "Z" receiver last season and was a backup tailback on the depth chart heading into fall camp.
Hyder has been floating across the line of scrimmage since he arrived on campus. In 2006, he was a backup tailback and at the start of the 2007 season he was at strong safety. He played in all 13 games as a backup at strong safety.
"There's a chance I bump back over [to offense]," Hyder told the Colorado Springs Gazette. "Our depth at tailback right now is kind of nonexistent. I told coach [Troy Calhoun], I can come over, learn all this and if he wants to throw me back over in two weeks ... it's not something I'd really have to re-learn."
Cochran spent the spring taking first-team reps with Connor Dietz while the two top quarterbacks -- Tim Jefferson and Asher Clark -- missed most of the spring with academics and injuries respectively. However, neither Cochran nor Dietz did enough in the spring to warrant a jump over either Jefferson or Clark.
