The Texans really need to think about a Plan B for the running back position to not only replace Ben Tate, but for an emergency policy in case of another injury to starting running back Arian Foster.

Bleacher Report has a scouting report on Hyde, where it states about the Buckeye RB:

"“Very good balance, does not go down without a fight and many would-be tacklers merely bounce off of him.”"

At this round, I believe Hyde would be a steal, and in the simulator, I selected this seven-round draft with Hyde was still on the board.
