Carlos Hyde is a bigger back but he has had some success in the NFL, but does he fit the 49ers new scheme under Kyle Shanahan.
According to Grant Chon of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Hyde has struggled. Cohn said Hyde was the “slowest and most indecisive” running back on the team. Cohn says Hyde doesn’t seem to have the vision to succeed in new coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense, adding that Hyde never found a hole.
Ultimately, Cohn concluded that Hyde may be best off traded to another team.
Yesterday there was news that Matt Jones of the Redskins could be traded. Now add in a player like Carlos Hyde. If a running back goes down in preseason expect both of them to be traded. I would not imagine a team cutting a former draft pick when they can trade him and get something for him.
