Carlos Hyde will have to earn starting job
11 July 2017
CSN Bay Area believes Carlos Hyde will have to compete for the 49ers' starting job.
Longtime beat writer Matt Maiocco has seen what everybody else has, reasoning Hyde's injury history, contract status and unfamiliarity with new coach Kyle Shanahan's system has him on the defensive. Maiocco also believes it's noteworthy how hard Shanahan went after fourth-rounder Joe Williams in the draft. Maiocco expects a committee to develop even if Hyde is christened "starter." Tim Hightower is in the mix with Hyde and Williams.
