A true burner, Hyatt plays a near identical game to Will Fuller. Quietly, the Jets could still use another vertical threat in their wide receiver room.

A true vertical burner, Hyatt looks and played like a Will Fuller clone in his 2022 campaign. He hauled in 67 catches on 89 targets for 1,267 yards and 15 touchdowns. He only dropped five passes.
His game is simple: he plays with deadly over the top speed. Tennessee did an excellent job finding him free releases off the line of scrimmage into his routes. He caught five touchdowns and went for over 200 yards in a win over Alabama this season, where they had no answer for him.
There are two questions with Hyatt. First, he weighed 176 pounds at the combine. Will he be able to stay healthy with that slender frame? He’s a very upright runner.
Second, will he evolve into a more rounded threat? Speed is a great calling card, especially when you possess the tracking and relatively reliable hands that he does. It forces defense to respect you on the back end, rather than selling out against the run.
He’s an early second round pick with a very defined role at the next level.
