Per NFL Draft Buzz, Hyatt has the following strengths and weaknesses:

- A savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus

- Played mostly in the slot so didn’t match up against press coverage much
- Route tree is fairly limited

Jalin Hyatt in Mock Drafts
According to NFL Mock Draft Database, Hyatt is projected as a late first-round or early second-round pick. Likely because of his talent, he will sneak into the first round.

- Sports Illustrated – No. 12 overall: Texans
- Draft Countdown – No. 20 overall: Jaguars
- 33rd Team – No. 23 overall: Giants

Would Jalin Hyatt Fit on the Packers?
It would be very ironic that the year when Aaron Rodgers potentially retires the Packers take a receiver in the first round. However, Hyatt would be a great fit for the Packers. Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs can line up on the outside. They are needing a receiver to play primarily in the slot. Hyatt would slot (pun intended) right in and create a trio of young receivers.
Check Out Another Prospect That Could Fit For the Packers
Thinking about Hyatt’s speed next to Watson’s speed makes me excited for the Packers’ offense no matter who is at quarterback. Teams saw what the Miami Dolphins did with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle on the field this year. Speed can absolutely hurt even the best of secondaries. If Hyatt is available at no. 15 I’m not sure GM Brian Gutekunst will be able to resist.
