Senior, Ohio State
Hyde is the ideal power back. He's a punishing runner who consistently drags defenders after contact and falls forward for extra yardage.

Of note: Hyde was suspended for three games in 2013 after police investigated his role in an alleged assault at a Columbus bar (though he was not charged with anything).
