Kerry Hyder

School: Texas Tech
Position: DT
Positive: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors after his senior and junior seasons. Numbers last year included 65 tackles with 11.5 tackles for loss after 56 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and 14 tackles for loss the prior year. Slightly undersized but explosive defensive linemen who projects as a 3-technique tackle. Fires off the snap with a tremendous first step, keeps his feet moving, and constantly focused on by opponents. Resilient, works through blocks, and moves well laterally, showing the ability to get down the line of scrimmage in pursuit. Plays with good pad level, possesses a smooth change of direction and flashes power. Works his hands throughout the action to protect himself or disengage from blocks.
Negative: Lacks natural bulk and handled by opponents. Occasionally gets tall and makes himself an easy target.
Analysis: Hyder is a high-effort lineman who plays with outstanding quickness and movement skills. He must pay a little more attention to the details of his position but comes with upside and can start at the next level in the proper system.
