Raiders should not waste a high pick at RB with so much value late in the draft

The Raiders have two dynamic but injury prone tailbacks on the roster. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew are two of the best talents in the NFL. While some fans are calling for Reggie Mckenzie to draft Carlos Hyde or Tre Mason, it wouldn’t be a wise move. Both DMC and MJD were high draft picks and one could make the argument rightfully so. But, there hasn’t been talents...

Scouting The Draft: Running Back Carlos Hyde

The New York Jets are expected to have as many as 12 draft picks in May’s draft, barring any trades.

Arguably the two position groups that many expect to not be affected by the draft are running back and defensive line. However,...

Former Ohio State QB Kenny Guiton Is A Dancing Machine

Former Ohio State quarterback Kenny Guiton did an incredible job backing up starter Braxton Miller this past season. But perhaps his real talent lies in his dancing abilities. Check out the Instagram clip that Carlos Hyde posted this afternoon – it shows Guiton breaking it down to Chingy’s “Right Thurr”. A throwback indeed. I’m not sure what you’d call this, but it does...

Carlos Hyde: the top running back in the 2014 draft?

Carlos Hyde is one running back that has stayed on most NFL teams’ radar leading up to the draft. Hyde is a bruiser who played 4 years at Ohio St and is one of several tailbacks looking to get a sack full of cash very soon. Actually NFL teams probably use direct deposit nowadays. Be that as it may, Hyde is about to hit the big leagues and improve his family’s financial status...
