3. Micah Hyde
Despite not necessarily being named an All-American, Micah Hyde played a crucial role on the Iowa Hawkeyes defense, and his versatility is arguably greater than that of even Amani Hookers.
Hyde committed to the Iowa football program as a dual-threat quarterback, but he was quickly switched to defensive back where he alternated between corner back and safety throughout his tenure with the Hawks.
Hyde was twice named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten (sophomore and junior seasons) before receiving First Team All-Big Ten honors his senior season. He was also the first Iowa football player to receive the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year award (it began in 2011).
During his career, Hyde had 240 tackles, eight interceptions, 15 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and three defensive touchdowns.
After an outstanding career with the Iowa football program, Hyde was drafted in the 5th round by the Green Bay packers, and he has put together quite a nice NFL career thus far. He was named one of the top-100 players of 2018 and frequently places in the top ten of Pro Football Focus’ safety rankings.
