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.

    Doing a good job “T”, keep it going. It took me a while to understand your drafting style but now I’ve picked up on it and you’re knock’em out baby…. Go for another LB and we’ll be fine… “Go Pack Go”!!!!!

    Where are the defensive linemen?

    @Rand,..pick #167 Josh Boyd Miss. St. DT

    Not a bad pick but 49ers, Seattle and Baltimore all kicked Packers in the draft. All you TT cheerleaders need to give it up.

    Johnny, thanks. This team is blessed with so many hayseed fans who know more than the scouts.

    Yeah its not like the Packers have won a SB with TT drafting ..oh wait a sec….

    Can’t believe we went for a proven ball hawk tweener on Defense when we need a ILB, OLB, DE, NT, T, OG, C, RB, FB, K, P, SS, FS, CB, WR, TE and we desperately need a QB bad!!

    Do not agree with with the Micah Hyde pick at all when we need all the other previously mentioned positions…

    They didn’t do anything in the FA Market. They moved all there draft positions back. They got guys that based on salary cap and signing bonuses won’t be a problem signing. Yeah TT and all those fans that love the draft got the whole enchilada this year. Will the Pack improve over the past two season’s first round playoff eliminations? I hope so but not holding my breath.

    @Johnny…you obviously have no clue to what you talk about. Datone Jones…STUD. Will start this year and dominate. Lacey…STUD. Will start this year and dominate. 2 O-line drafted…neither give up sacks. Another STUD CB who will improve that Pack this year and years to come. Big and fast moving Def Tackle in Josh Boyd…will replace player(s) gone after this year and WILL more-then-likely play this year. The Packers became INSTANTLY better with the picks we have already and the draft isn’t done yet. TT is and has been a genius in the draft…those who dog him are knuckleheads who spout off thinkin’ they know something, just to be heard. Kinda like YOU Johnny boy. Keep thinkn’ you’re smart bud.

    Anything else smart guy Johnny?

    The Boyd pick was really nice. I’ll listen and leave the drafting to the experts. But my opinion is Datone Jones and Josh Boyd improved the team the most.

  15. By Craig on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    I think Micah Hyde will play free safety for the Packers.

    He has the build of a safety.

    Hyde is a play maker and that is what we need at safety.

  16. By VMB on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    Easy JJ. TT is far from a genius. Lets never forget Justin Harrell in round 1, Mike Neal in round 2 and so far derrick sherrod in round 1.

  17. By Edmond on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    Lets not forget Rodgers and Matthews, the two highest players at their positions… for a reason. How about never drafting a receiver in the first, that really worked out for us… Oh TT, I think we need you to take lessons from Jerry Jones or the Oakland Davis family…

  18. By Mitch2 on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    Like the picks minus the 2 OL picks. I’m not an expert, but they appear to be the same as all their other linemen. Maybe that’s a good thing. But if you were going to draft OL, a couple of road graters would’ve been nice for certain packages. Happy with everything else. Definitely upgraded DL and run game.

  19. By Dan on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    I doubt if Hyde will be the one competing for time at safety this year, but I’m hoping the team has plans for one of our promising corners making the transition to safety this season. Now we just need TT to get a WR, preferably with size, to replace one of our losses at that position.

    Love the Micah Hyde pick I’ve seen him play a couple times at Iowa when I’ve visited my friend who attends Iowa. Never can have too many good DB’s, good job TT.

  21. By VMB on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    Well I guess once you draft a really good QB you can just do whatever you want and people will just look the other way. Oh TT maybe you should take lessons from Bill Belichick on how to draft a good QB and use FREE AGENCY and the draft to build Super Bowl teams year in and year out.

  22. By Dan on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    I think it is safe to say “Goodbye” the bulk of our 2012 running backs as TT obviously decided to go in a different direction. I see them keeping DuJuan Harris for a change of pace back, but I think the rest will be fighting for one spot.

    I agree with you JJ, but you have to realize that Johnny’s not a packer fan and believes every one in the NFL is better than the packers. Like he knows how to evaluate and draft players better than the scouts that do their jobs! And every one else in the NFL is dead on with all their picks.

    Yeah Edmond you are such an expert. Oh wait that’s right. you’ve never done anything in football so you can’t be an expert. Your ranting is sickening. Why don’t you go have a beer and go to sleep so you can wake up to letting the pros take care of the Packers.

  25. By Jed on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    If even one of those linemen is good enough to push TJ Lang out, that’s a significant improvement for this team. That guy can take his twitter show on the road for all I care.

    Hyde could be used at punt return… take some hits off of Cobb. Hyde looks like he ahs a lot of open field moves and good vision. Check out the vidios above.

    @northerner: The Packers made it through the first round of the play-offs last year…

    Okay we might have helped our D line, lets hope so. Did we help the O line, dont think so, and that should have been a priority. Like the running backs, but would have liked to see Montee Ball in there I think he is a bit faster than Lacy, but good picks either way. Dont know if we helped D backfield or not. Iowa guy could do the job. We did not get any end, wide or tight, does that hurt us, we are going to have to wait and see. We do need a good line backer for Hawk, who has done a grest job for us, but now maybe needs some help. Whatever go Pack. We may not have cured all the hurts but I dont think we lost ground.

    Amazing…. the picks have not even practiced yet and some are retiring them as has-beens or nar-do-wells. Can we all agree potential exists with all of the picks and see how the preseason and early regular season shapes-up without tightening the noose already. All you geniuses complaining about the draft need to apply for jobs at Lambeau so we can salvage this pathetic draft….

    Roll on Green Roll on
