John Lynch was asked an open-ended question: “Has any player stood out who is in great shape?”
“Carlos Hyde looks tremendous,” Lynch said. “He’s really dedicated himself.”
The praise came during a press conference featuring Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Hyde met with media shortly after and confirmed that his summer has been spent preparing for training camp. Players officially reported to the SAP Performance Facility on Thursday, but Hyde had already been at 49ers HQ. Rather than return home to Florida, the running back stayed in the Bay Area for daily workouts with 49ers strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright, the story said.
