The Green Bay Packers figure to be in the market for a wide receiver this off-season. Brian Gutekunst and Matt LaFleur have both commented on their desire to add to their pass catchers this off-season. Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs certainly provide a bright future at the position. They also give Jordan Love some reliable options as he starts his tenure as the Green Bay Packers starting quarterback. There may be one more guy that the Packers are interested in bringing in to bolster those weapons for Love.
Green Bay Packers Show Up To Jalin Hyatt’s Pro Day
Jalin Hyatt is the fifth-ranked receiver prospect on the big board of ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. The other top four wideouts were selected by the 25th overall pick in his latest mock draft. Hyatt stands 6-feet tall and weighs 176 pounds. He recorded a 4.4 40-yard dash and a 40-inch vertical. His professional player comparison is Desean Jackson, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL Network.
“Hyatt is an instantly credible WR2 with the ability to make a huge impact, but production could be erratic due to the limitations of his game,” Zierlein wrote.
Hyatt made 67 catches for 1,267 yards and 15 touchdowns across 12 games last season, per Football Reference. He averaged 18.9 yards per reception. According to reports, Hyatt met with the Packers at the NFL Combine, and the team decision-makers are impressed with what he brings to the table. Head coach Matt LaFleur runs a West-Coast offense that requires a lot of speed from the wideouts. The Green Bay Packers doubled down and truly showed their interest in Jalin Hyatt when they attend Tennessee’s pro day. While it is unclear if the Packers would take Jalin Hyatt with their 15th overall pick, if he is there in the second round, the Packers would almost certainly pull the trigger.
