NFL Draft Outlook: Kerry Hyder

With the NFL Draft fast approaching Wreck Em Red moves on to the next NFL hopeful Kerry Hyder. According to CBS Sports Hyder is second highest Red Raider on their draft list. He has the potential to be a sixth to seventh round selection. Hyder should be able to find a position playing the three or five technique on the defensive line. He lacks the size to play as a 3-4 defensive end.

Hyder uses his hands well and is very stout against the run. He is a bit undersized and doesn’t have the ideal build to be considered higher in the draft. One thing that will make scouts fall in love with him is his ability drop his base and shoot his hands. Hyder has very little issue with disengaging from defenders which makes him ideal for the three technique. Without any weight gain, Hyder might need to move to defensive end. The possible teams list for Hyder is endless with where he is projected to go in the draft.
