New Green Bay Packers cornerback Micah Hyde and cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt talked about Hyde's fifth-round selection on Saturday:

5th-round draft pick Micah Hyde

♦ Mike Daniels is my man. Stayed at his house going into my freshman year. He never turned on AC despite hot weather.

♦ Have to work on my physicality. I'm a good tackler but need to do with more physicality. Am really comfortable with ball in air.

♦ I learned life lesson through whole off-field incident. (Hyde was arrested for public intoxication during Iowa's bye week.) I made horrible decision that night, learning from it and moving on.

♦ I was asked about off-field incident. I made a stupid mistake. They wanted to know every detail. My court date is coming off.

♦ CB is what I'm used to. Played couple games at safety, but most comfortable playing corner.

♦ Can play different position, can play special teams. Learned to perfect punt returning at Iowa. Extremely comfortable there.

♦ It's an awesome feeling getting picked by Packers.

Cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt

♦ Hyde is a willing tackler. Size is good. It's going to be fun with competition. I love bringing talent to room and team.

♦ Hyde is smart, tough kid. Decent long speed, understands football. Hyde and (Casey) Hayward are two different players.

♦ Arrest Hyde had in October is not my concern.

♦ Couldn't speak about Davon House's physical condition.

♦ Men in room decide who plays by way they prepare, practice and perform. Best ones will play.
