Jalin Hyatt, 5 TDs vs. 'Bama ...

Manny in CA : 3/13/2023 12:20 am

Remember when the Eagles snatched skinny 6'0", 170 DeVonte Smith from our waiting arms. "Skinny" is reprised in Hyatt 6' 170 Hyatt.

He is a 2nd round prospect,

so he is in our reach if managment see's him as being worthy. Maybe move up in 2nd? (We have 57 and Walterfootball has him at 45.)
His ratings are all over the place

I’ve seen him at 20 and deep in round 2. Everybody is hung up over the style of offense Tennessee ran. I think the kid is a stud and I also like his teammate Cedric Tillman.

There are very good receivers in this draft. I expect Schoen to draft 2, 1 very early and I’d be happy with Hyatt in round 1.
First round is to early for him

I don't like reaching for a player in the first round. We have more than one need. With 11 picks we can trade up if Schoen wants to.

Why exactly is he a "reach"? Because Mel Kiper has him ranked as a 2nd rounder?
PFN has him listed at #29 overall.

WR rankings vary wildly from site to site.
Although I like Zay Flowers Better...  
Jim in Tampa : 3/13/2023 9:04 am : link
I initially thought that Hyatt might be a better fit for our offense, because his deep threat ability could open things up for Barkley and for the underneath throws.

But supposedly, during his interviews at the combine, Hyatt was telling teams that he viewed himself more as a slot WR. (Probably not the best thing to tell teams, given that the draft is full of slot WRs.)
Im all aboard

Flowers or JSN (assuming Addison isnt there)
I still think

Q. Johnston is the way they need to go. He needs a lot of coaching but he's got huge upside.
Those college highlight reels are tough to gauge,

at least for me. That Alabama defense might be as close to an NFL talent level as you'll get in CFB, but it's not the same. Not as fast, not as sophisticated... talent from position to position is less consistent. (Even on Alabama, not every starter is a future NFL starter.)

So while it is impressive for any player to score 5 TDs against Alabama, that doesn't tell me he's a sure-fire #1 pick for the Giants or anyone else.
