04/24/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT RANG'S GANG: CB: Micah Hyde, Iowa, 6-0, 197, 4.52...Perhaps because Iowa finished just 4-8 last season, Hyde hasn't received the NFL draft buzz he deserves. Awarded the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year in the Big Ten and honored as a co-MVP for the Hawkeyes, one can't characterize Hyde as underrated, but in proving more than respectable speed at his size at the combine, he silenced critics who questioned whether he had the athleticism to remain outside in the NFL. In reality, if a team moves him to safety at the next level, it will only be to take better advantage of his instincts and reliable tackling. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/17/2013 - 2013 Iowa Pro Day: Iowa's new indoor facility is true star of pro day...Iowa had its pro day on March 25. Workouts were held at Iowa's new indoor facility, which is like the Taj Mahal I'm told. Sixteen teams watched eight guys work out. Micah Hyde, FS (5-foot-11 1/2, 194 pounds) - Hyde had a 33 1/2-inch vertical, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.22-second short shuttle, a 6.67-second three-cone drill and 12 reps on the bench. He did position drills. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

10/10/2012 - Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde says he made a stupid mistake and let a lot of people down after being arrested in Iowa City last weekend. Hyde apologized to his family, coaches and teammates on Tuesday in his first public comments since being booked on suspicion of public intoxication and interference with official acts early last Saturday. Coach Kirk has removed Hyde, a three-year starter, as a team captain. He also tightened the team's curfew after Hyde and reserves Ray Hamilton and Drew Clark were arrested in separate alcohol-related incidents. Ferentz says he didn't suspend any of those players for Saturday's game at Michigan State largely because of their positive behavior prior to last weekend. - AP Sports

10/08/2012 - Iowa senior cornerback Micah Hyde is listed as a starter for Saturday's game at Michigan State despite being arrested over the weekend. The 21-year-old Hyde was booked early Saturday morning at an Iowa City bar on suspicion of public intoxication and interference with official acts. Tight end Ray Hamilton and offensive lineman Drew Clark were also arrested in separate alcohol-related incidents, which came during the team's bye week. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said in a statement released Saturday that he was disappointed because all three players have been ''good citizens'' during their time in our program. Ferentz said the Hawkeyes will follow protocol set by the school's student-athlete code of conduct and take additional measures internally. Hamilton is also listed on this week's depth chart as a backup. - AP Sports

10/06/2012 - Micah Hyde, a senior cornerback for the Iowa Hawkeyes, was arrested Saturday morning for public intoxication and interference with official acts. Hyde, a captain and three-year starter for Iowa, was among a group of people who wouldn't leave Old Capitol Brew Works around closing time early Saturday morning, according to the Iowa City Police Department report. Hyde was among a group of about 15 subjects fighting with the staff. There was no immediate comment from the University of Iowa. Hyde wasn't the only alcohol-related legal run-in during the Hawkeyes' idle weekend. Iowa (3-2, 1-0 Big Ten) travels to Michigan State next Saturday. Sophomore tight end Ray Hamilton was ticketed Saturday morning for being underaged and in a bar after 10 p.m., and junior offensive lineman Drew Clark was arrested Friday for public intoxication. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz issued a statement through Iowa sports information Saturday night: "I was disappointed to learn of the events involving three team members, as all three of these student-athletes have been good citizens during their time in our program," Ferentz said. "We will follow protocol set by the UI student-athlete Code of Conduct, as well as taking additional measures within the program." On the Hyde incident, the officers arrived on the scene as the crowd was breaking up. Staff pointed out which subjects were involved, including Hyde. The police confronted the group at the corner of Bowery and Gilbert St., told them to stop and flashed squad car lights. Hyde and the group ignored the command and fled. - The Gazette

09/07/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: The defense, also playing for a new coordinator, allowed a 73-yard touchdown run by quarterback Jordan Lynch last week but still yielded just 17 points. That's a number the coaches will take all season. This week, the Hawkeyes face a quarterback, Steele Jantz, who threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns in an opening win over Tulsa, and a runner, Shontrelle Johnson, who returned from a neck injury with 120 yards and a TD in the opener. - The Sports Xchange

08/02/2012 - Top-five Iowa prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 1. CB Micah Hyde...Under the watch of head coach Kirk Ferentz, Iowa has been well-known for producing offensive linemen to the next level, but over the past five years, the Hawkeyes have actually sent more defensive backs to the NFL. And although the Hawkeyes will need to replace secondary players Shaun Prater and Jordan Bernstine, who were both drafted this past April, Iowa does return the versatile and experienced Hyde, arguably their most important player on defense. Hyde set numerous high school records as a quarterback and defensive back in Ohio and grew up a Buckeyes' fan. However, he didn't receive much attention from Ohio State or other Big Ten schools, except Ferentz and the Hawkeyes. Shortly after arriving in Iowa City, Hyde moved full-time to the secondary and proved to be a special teams' stand out as a true freshman in 2009. He started all 13 games at cornerback in 2010 and recorded a career-high 82 tackles and four interceptions. Hyde stared last season at free safety (two starts) before moving back to cornerback for the final 11 contests, finishing with a team-best three interceptions and earning Second Team All-Big Ten honors. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

08/02/2012 - Top-five Iowa prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 1. CB Micah Hyde...Although he looks more like a safety at 6-1, 190, he is expected to remain at cornerback as a senior in 2012. Hyde is an instinctive and smart defender, using his eyes and length to track and make plays on the ball. He isn't a quick-twitch athlete and lacks the hip flexibility ideal for the position, but understands body placement and timing in coverage. Hyde is a sound tackler and also makes waves on special teams, hating to ever leave the field. He is a bit of a CB/FS tweener, which will probably knock him out of the top two rounds, but Hyde has outstanding football awareness and leadership that could land him in the top-80 picks. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/18/2012 - 2012 BRONKO NAGURSKI TROPHY PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Micah Hyde, CB, Iowa, has been selected to the Preseason Bronko Nagurski Trophy Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season. The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is presented to the National Defensive Player of the Year by the Charlotte Touchdown Club and the Football Writers Association of America. Hyde (6-foot-1, 190) was also named to the Bednarik and CFPA preseason watch lists earlier this week. The senior, who hails from Fostoria, Ohio, started the first two games at free safety last year and the final 11 games at cornerback. He earned second team All-Big Ten honors by league media after recording 72 total tackles and sharing the team lead with three interceptions. - Iowa football

07/10/2012 - 2012 BEDNARIK AWARD PRESEASON WATCHLIST: Micah Hyde, Iowa, CB, Sr., has been selected to the preseason Bednarik Award watchlist for the 2012 college football season. The Bednarik Award has been presented to the nation's top defensive player since 1995. A former standout at Penn and with the Philadelphia Eagles, Chuck Bednarik is a member of both the College Football Hall of Fame's Class of 1969 and the NFL Hall of Fame's Class of 1967. Hyde (6-foot-1, 190) started the first two games at free safety last year and the final 11 games at cornerback. He earned second team All-Big Ten honors by league media after recording 72 total tackles and sharing the team lead with three interceptions. - Iowa football
