Report: Carlos Hyde “on the radar” for Browns in second round

AP

The Browns addressed a need in free agency with the signing of tailback Ben Tate.

However, they could still stand to bolster their options in the backfield. And, according to a published report, they could be considering adding a tailback with in-state collegiate ties in Round Two.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde is “on the radar” for Cleveland in the second round. The Browns hold the third pick in Round Two (No. 35 overall).

Hyde (6-0, 230) is regarded as one of the top backs in the Class of 2014. He rushed for 3,198 yards and 37 touchdowns on 523 carries in four seasons with the Buckeyes. He also caught 34 passes for 271 yards and four touchdowns.

The Browns have not drafted a back since taking Trent Richardson third overall two years ago. They have not selected a running back in Round Two since drafting Montario Hardesty in 2010. Neither are still with the club.

  1. I’ve kinda lost interest. I think I’d rather it already be the week after the draft and reading post draft team reports.

  2. a RB with the 35 pick! yeah, that will be the day. 523 carries and 31oo yards, those wheels have been used! no RB is worth a 1st or 2nd round pick now of days!

  3. Hyde doesn’t mess around, he’d be a good pick up for any team, especially in the second round.

  4. i like hyde – but too many other needs. 1st 3 picks should be WR, CB, QB – not necesarrily that order.

    I think Manziel is a Brown t #4.

    #26 – look for a CB, either Roby, Denard, Fuller, Verret, or Gilbert.

    at pick #35 – look for your WR – either Robinson, Mathews, Lee, or Benjamin

    Twofaced,

    I’ve got two words–Eddie Lacy. Not only was he worth a 2nd round pick but he should have been taken in the 1st.

    BTW–See Gio Bernard on the Bengals play & tell me he wasn’t worth a 2nd round pick.

  6. Don’t waste an early pick on a top tier RB. We have Tate now and depth with lesser known RB’s that produced at a decent level when given the OPP. RB should not be taken until the 4th.
