Daily draft dish: Time to play Hyde and seek
By Rich Cimini
Every morning, from now until draft day on May 8, we'll provide a draft factoid, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information. We'll keep it New York Jets-centric, sticking to team needs, possible selections, trends, etc.
The Jets are looking to add a running back. Maybe it will be former Tennessee Titans star Chris Johnson, maybe not. What about waiting for the draft? Many consider Ohio State's Carlos Hyde the top-rated back. He has a lot to offer. For instance: Hyde averaged 7.3 yards per carry and failed to gain positive yards on just 12 of his 208 carries He gained at least five yards on 57.2 percent of his rushes, second-best among FBS running backs.
