Packers add Iowa CB Micah Hyde in fifth round

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 27, 2013 – 2:13 pm

With the first of two fifth-round picks, the Packers selected Iowa CB Micah Hyde on Saturday. Hyde, listed at 6-1, 197, was the 159th overall selection in the draft.

A first-team All-Big Ten pick last season by both the league’s coaches and media, Hyde started 38 games over his final three seasons and recorded eight interceptions. He also forced four fumbles and recovered three in his career. The three recoveries were all last season, and he returned one for a touchdown. He returned two INTs for TDs as a sophomore in 2010, with returns of 72 and 66 yards.

Hyde was named the winner of the Big Ten’s Tatum-Woodson defensive back of the year last season and was named co-MVP on his team. He participated in the East-West Shrine Game following his final season at Iowa. He broke up 14 passes last year. He also played some safety as a junior in 2011.

The Packers have now selected a cornerback in each of the last three drafts, having taken Davon House in the fourth round in 2011 and Casey Hayward in the second round last year.
