I'll still take Hyde.
IMO, it's because he has proven that he has a three-down skill set. He also has good size and great athleticism. He reminds me of Bengals RB Gio Bernard, who was the 1st back selected last year. He fits the mold of the more modern RB that is starting to take over the league while downhill runners like Hyde are starting to be phased out.

As far as the metrics go, let's remember that Ohio State, LSU, Auburn, and Baylor will all have O-Linemen drafted this year. Sankey probably played behind the worst O-Line of the guys listed here.
