SANTA CLARA — This is what Trent Baalke said about Carlos Hyde Saturday afternoon.
ME: What about Carlos Hyde has stood out to you in training camp so far?
BAALKE: You have to like his pad level, his vision, his feet. He is a 235-pound back that has small-man movements. He gets his feet in the dirt quick. He gets in and out of things. He sees things. He’s a natural runner and you can see that. Now there are things he’s going to have to work on and he certainly will, but you have to like what you see early on.
