No. 19 Jalin Hyatt, WR, @Vol_Football
“He’s got the size (6’1″ and 180 pounds), wheels, and body of work worthy of a high-end draft pick in the 2023 dynasty rookie rankings.”

Jalin Hyatt said he is targeting to run a “4.29” in the 40-yard dash next month at the NFL Combine.
Only 16 players in NFL Combine history have run faster than that
I think a healthy Will Fuller is Hyatt's absolute ceiling. Some lower-end comps, imo, are Travis Benjamin, Markus Wheaton, Dede Westbrook and Mecole Hardman.FBG rookie guide came to the same player comp as me - Will Fuller
A healthy Will Fuller is potentially a very good NFL/fantasy weapon

Just saying there’s no proof of a route tree as of today. I suppose he could improve that. It’s a red flag is all.
NFL WR Gauntlet—> Hutchinson looked smooth but announcer was saying Hyatt has a “full route tree” and can play anywhere. Don’t know if reality but something to considerJust saying there’s no proof of a route tree as of today. I suppose he could improve that. It’s a red flag is all.
I am less excited about fantasy, and more about him being a true deep threat, and what that could mean for teams that don't have it now. Doubt he's ever a 100 catch guy, but everyone needs deep speed

Ruggs and Reagor anyone? And from a few years ago Desean Jackson.I am less excited about fantasy, and more about him being a true deep threat, and what that could mean for teams that don't have it now. Doubt he's ever a 100 catch guy, but everyone needs deep speed

Just wait until today's workout is over. Hyatt has been slept on for far too long. He's the real deal.
Junior He runs 3 routes @robo8936
Matt Miller @NFLDraftScout
Scouting is looking at what a player CAN do and understanding what he was ASKED to do. They're not mutually exclusive.
DK Metcalf ran three routes in college. Learning a bigger route tree isn't hard.
I agree. Too “limited” for me to take Top 15 pick (Rookie 1QB 12 Team).I'm at the point of someone else can have him in the 1st round.
If I had to pick a couple guys likely to bust--he's near the top of the list.

Tennessee wide receiver Jalin Hyatt leads his position with an 87 overall draft score entering the 2023 NFL Draft.
The 2022 Biletnikoff Award winner ranks in the top three of athleticism score (86, 3rd) and production score (88, 2nd) among wide receivers in this year's class.
Jalin Hyatt had a reputation as a deep threat in Knoxville, averaging 18.9 yards per reception in 2022.
He validated that reputation at the 2023 NFL Combine, reaching the 3rd-fastest top speed (24.29 MPH) of the 208 players who were tracked during the forty-yard dash.
Giants selected Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt with the No. 73 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.A freshman non-factor under lame duck coach Butch Jones in 2020, Hyatt (6’0/176) suffered through an injury-marred 2021 under Josh Heupel. Then he put everything together in Heupel’s RPO/play-action heavy spread in 2022, exploding for 67/1,267/15 en route to first-team All-American honors. Hyatt is something of a tough eval because he’s a speedster who tested “slower” than expected at 4.40 while much of his college film features him running in wide-open space thanks to Heupel’s beautifully-designed offense. He also bombed his agility drills in the pre-draft process. Hyatt does ramp up quickly, creating space both deep and at the short-to-intermediate levels. He is a very dangerous man in the manufactured touch department. Still five months shy of his 22nd birthday, Hyatt has the makings of a classic boom/bust prospect at the NFL level. Given the Giants' embarrassment of riches exclusively at slot receiver, Hyatt may struggle to earn a significant role as a rookie. Still, if he lives up to his potential, he will be New York's most explosive wideout.

It will be interesting to see if he can’t run the complete route tree or was that simply something he wasn’t asked to do at Tennessee because of the offense.He may be a one trick pony, but it is a real good trick.
