Former Tennessee Vols wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is heading to The Big Apple after getting selected by the New York Giants with the No. 73 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Before that happened, however, he had a chance to show teams what he could do during his pro day earlier this year.
Footage has now come out showing him in a conversation with a Dallas Cowboys scout about his ability. The unknown scout was doubting what he can do while only pointing out his speed. The young man made it known that he could also run routes, to which he would show him and everybody else.

Hyatt, who was viewed as a potential first-round pick, surprisingly lasted until the third round of the draft. That was mostly due to concerns about Hyatt’s size and the offense he played in at Tennessee.
The former Vols standout did not let his slip in the draft get him down, in fact, he told them he’s probably the best deep threat in this year’s draft class.
“I feel like I’m probably the best deep-threat receiver in the draft,” said Hyatt (via SNY). “I really do believe that, and Giants they really got a playmaker, they got a dynamic playmaker, an explosive playmaker. And that’s what I want to bring and add to the team.”
Hyatt also made it clear that he’s ready to get to work with Giants quarterback Daniel Jones.
“That’s one of the first [people] I’m going to meet with to understand what he does, what he likes in games, what his best throws, what he wants me to do for him,” said Hyatt. “I think when you build that connection with a quarterback, you can go as far as you want to go.”
“I’m going to be consistent, I’m going to be consistent in the facility and meeting with him and doing what he wants me to do for him, because I’m here to help him out,” added Hyatt. “That’s why I can’t wait to do it.”
The receiver had a career year for Tennessee in 2022, totaling 67 receptions, 1,267 yards, and 15 touchdowns while averaging an impressive 18.9 yards per reception.
The 6-0, 175-pound Tennessee Volunteers speedster had a quick development, considering he had just 21 receptions, 226 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in nine games in the 2021 season.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
