Combining Hyde with Giovani Bernard will make the Bengals more dynamic by adding someone similar to BJGE but faster. Lowering the pads and refusing to be stopped works well in the NFL today, so Hyde’s style will translate well in the pros.

Although Hyde was suspended for three games during 2013, that shouldn’t be a major threat to his draft stock. Fatigue was an issue at times for Hyde during certain games, but the way the NFL is set up now, Carlos Hyde will benefit greatly and shouldn’t have to worry about being tired on Sunday’s.

He is currently predicted to go between rounds two and three. If drafted by the Bengals, Hue Jackson will have the chance to mold Hyde into a stud by bringing out is best abilities when needed.
