    I'll probably get killed for this but I watched his game tapes and highlights and I don't see this hyper physical running style. I think both Andre Williams and Jeremy Hill both run harder. Hyde isn't soft but for a guy his size I always get the feeling he should be more physical at the point of attack. He really does remind me of Beanie Welles.

    I agree with Hill and Williams being more physical runners but I don't see the Beanie Wells comparison.

    Thats fine and all, those guys are all good hard nosed runners. But is the Wells comment a knock or a compliment?

    Hey, we've had good luck with an Ohio State running back before.

    Definitely not a "knock" but I don't want to spend a high pick on a guy who's ceiling is Beanie Welles. The guy was a decent back for a little while but he just never put it all together. There's just something about Hyde's game that feels missing to me. Can't really put my finger on it though.

    He will go either pick 40 or 41. You know how these things work out for us.

    If he is there at 42, I sure as hell hope we select him. I just don't see him being there at 42 though. Let's just hope he smokes a little green that makes him drop a few spots.

    I am hoping we can snatch him at 42. It would suck real bad if he is selected at 40 or 41. Kind of like us missing out on JPP.

    We dont need LenDale White 2.0

    I always wondered how good White could have been if he just gave 2 fuq's

    LenWhale was doing a pretty good job until Chris Johnson got all the carries.

    Even with CJ getting most the carries White still got all the TDs
