SANTA CLARA – Here’s what Chris Borland said about Carlos Hyde Friday morning
Q: Does he look like the same running back he was in college? What do you see from him?
BORLAND: As far as what he does well, I think he has carried that over. Like any rookie, there are things to learn and there is a learning curve. I think he has handled that well, too.
Q: Does he move like a guy who weighs 235 pounds?
BORLAND: No, he’s got very quick feet. He’s very smooth. There is no hesitation in breaks. He looks like he’s 205.
Q: Is he difficult to defend?
BORLAND: Yeah. You can never be on your heels while he’s making a move because he can run through you, too. You need to stay balanced. That’s what makes him a good running back – a great combination of size and speed. Not many guys have that, especially with his cutting ability.
