I would like to draft carlos late but in my league i don't think he'll be there. To many buckeyes fans. Would be a nice handcuff to gore though. So how high are you willing to draft Hyde?

He went undrafted in my ESPN league. Gladly dropped Pierre Thomas to take a chance on Goo-wap.

While he isnt in the same clear cut position, Im hoping I can snag him where I grabbed Le'Veon Bell last year. He was my dark horse I took a late round flier on. And it paid of in spades. Hoping to do the same with Mr. Cant Stop the Guap.

I've done a ton of mocks and it seems he's been going in the 9th round or later. Of course, you have someone who'll jump up and take him earlier in some cases.

9th round is a good place.  He is a "wait and see guy" because you don't know how many reps they will give him from the get go.

It's tough to trust rookie RB's, even though Hyde appears to be heading into a great situation with Gore banged up.  If you have Gore, you absolutely need Hyde as well.  I would say around pick #70-80 if you can get him.  I've seen mocks with backs such as Lamar Miller or CJ Anderson or Kadeem Carey or Jeremy Hill going before Hyde.  I'd take Hyde over any of those four (specifically because of concerns over Gore staying healthy).

I really like Tre Mason this year.  I think he is the highest scoring Rams RB this season.

Jeremy Hill is another very interesting gamble. He could be the bell cow starting out. Preseason will give us more of a scope to go off of but I expect Hill and Hyde to both be major contributors next season and worth a late round gamble for sure.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

Lamar Miller will be a starter. You draft him ahead of Hyde.

Of subject, but I like your screen name and icon. That's one of my favorite craft brews. I drink it all the time. As a matter of fact, I have a 6 of Edmund Fitz in the fridge.

I was hoping that OSU had a chance to play and beat up on Alabama while Carlos was still at the program, I wanted to yell "Roll Hyde!"

We are only doing what will amount to a rookie draft in our dynasty league this year.  I have the fourth pick. I think I gotta take him if I can then since he shouldn't be around for the 13th pick.
