ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said the idea that second-year DB Micah Hyde could hold off first-round S Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix "should not be completely discounted."
This comes after Hyde opened OTAs as the first-team safety. It is clear the Packers' coaching staff likes Hyde and wants him on the field, but it seems highly unlikely he is able to hold off a player as talented as Clinton-Dix. We still expect Clinton-Dix to open the season as the starter with Hyde playing in three-safety "big nickel" looks and slot corner in deeper sub-packages. May 31 - 1:41 PM

Second-year DB Micah Hyde opened OTAs as the Packers' first-team free safety.

Hyde will eventually cede the job to first-rounder Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but his position to open the spring is notable after Hyde focused on slot corner as a rookie. The 2013 fifth-round value pick figures to end up as Green Bay's No. 3 safety and No. 4 cornerback. He's also the Packers' kick and punt returner.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes the Packers will definitely select a safety in the draft, perhaps even as early as the first round.

Rumors had been second-year CB Micah Hyde would be transitioned to safety in Green Bay's base packages, but the selection of a player like Louisville S Calvin Pryor in the first round would change those plans. The Packers gave up the fifth most passing touchdowns in the league last season.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he'd like to see DB Micah Hyde as a three-down player.

As a rookie last season, Hyde was a third corner that played on 39.4 percent of the snaps. This year, it's possible he'll compete to be a safety in base packages and then slide down to the slot in sub packages a la Charles Woodson in 2012. Hyde could be battling a rookie -- the Packers have been linked to first-round safety prospects Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor.

Packers signed fifth-round DB Micah Hyde to a four-year contract.

Hyde played both cornerback and safety at Iowa and is tentatively expected to be a corner in Green Bay. He'll fight for special teams work as a rookie.

Packers selected Iowa S Micah Hyde with the No. 159 overall pick.

Hyde (5-foot-11 3/4, 197) logged 38 starts for the Hawkeyes, seeing action at both corner and safety and recording eight career interceptions. He played right cornerback in 2012. Hyde ran 4.56 at the Combine with a 33-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. He was arrested twice as a senior, once for public intox and again for disorderly conduct. If he gets his head on straight, Hyde will offer position flexibility and core special teams value in Green Bay.
