Carlos Hyde Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Hyde inked a 2-year, $4.5 million deal with the Jaguars in free agency. He got $1.4 million guaranteed.
  • Hyde is reuniting with HC Urban Meyer, who he played under at Ohio State in 2012 and 2013. Hyde posted a 185-970-16 rushing line in ‘12 and 208-1,521-15 in ‘13.
  • “Once I saw Coach Meyer become the head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, I already knew where I was going," Hyde said shortly after signing. “I'm happy he decided to do that now while I'm still playing. I'm excited he's here now.”
  • Hyde joins a Jacksonville backfield alongside 2020 revelation James Robinson and 2021 1st-rounder Travis Etienne.
  • Here’s what Meyer said about his backfield right after the draft: “I see Carlos [Hyde] and James [Robinson] the 1-2, downhill, powerful running backs. And I see Travis [Etienne] -- there's times where we could be in two-backs and Travis is a guy that goes out [wide]. Or we're still playing with it, but he's certainly a third-down back and he's a guy that's a matchup issue for the defense.”
  • Shoulder, hamstring and toe injuries limited Hyde to 10 games last year.
  • He averaged a solid 4.4 yards on his 81 attempts, spending most of the season playing behind Chris Carson.
  • Hyde ranked 47th in Elusive Rating and 40th in Pro Football Focus rushing grade among 76 RBs with 50+ attempts.
  • He had his first and only 1,000-yard season with the Texans back in 2019, taking 245 carries for 1,070 yards (4.4 YPC) and 6 scores.
  • Hyde ranked 40th in Elusive Rating and 13th in rushing grade among 68 qualifying RBs that year.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Hyde has familiarity with new Jaguars HC Urban Meyer after playing for him at Ohio State in 2012 and 2013. But Hyde is likely the 3rd most talented back in Jacksonville, behind Travis Etienne and James Robinson.

We’ll see how this backfield shakes out this summer, but Hyde would likely need an injury to 1 of those other 2 RBs t…
