This young man hasn't even played in a preseason game yet and people are already trying to bring him down. For NY Giants wideout Jalin Hyatt, the third-round pick is ready to make an immediate impact for Big Blue in 2023.
However, he's now got some extra motivation after seeing his name dragged by multiple NFL execs and a coach. In a recent piece from Dan Duggan of The Athletic, two execs called Hyatt out, while a coach said that he's got some 'arrogance to him' and that he is the kind of guy who has 'all the answers.'
Hyatt was surely motivated to have a strong rookie season before. Now, though, he's probably even more fired up to prove these doubters wrong:
Jalin Hyatt can't be too happy with people in the NFL calling him out
I mean, it just sounds like these random dudes don't like the fact that Hyatt plays with plenty of confidence and swagger. In today's NFL, you need to play with some edge. Hyatt fell to the third round despite plenty of mock drafts thinking he'd hear his name called on Day 1.
He put up impressive numbers for the Tennessee Volunteers last season, highlighted by his five-touchdown game vs. Alabama in what proved to be a thrilling upset win. Hyatt is a big-time talent, with incredible wheels to match.
Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka must be jacked up thinking about his potential in this offense. Daniel Jones is surely excited about throwing him the ball during the regular season too. The two have been getting in some extra reps after practice at OTAs, which will only help Jones and Hyatt's chemistry moving forward.
At the end of the day, Hyatt still has plenty of work to do this summer before the 2023 campaign gets here, but he's surely going to help open up the playbook for Kafka. As for the random execs/coach who tried blasting him with this negative talk - get ready to see this kid live up to the hype this fall.
