2. Jalin Hyatt, Tennessee

Arguably no wide receiver in the nation benefited from the 2022 campaign more than Tennessee's Jalin Hyatt. Over his first two seasons, he looked to be a wide receiver that had potential. Through his first 17 collegiate games, he recorded 41 receptions for 502 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

This past season, Hyatt took his game to new heights. In the Hendon Hooker-led offense, he became a go-to target. Over 12 games, he recorded 67 receptions for 1,267 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns.

Hyatt's biggest outing of the season came when Tennessee took on Alabama in Week 6. He finished the game with six receptions for 297 receiving yards and five touchdowns. This was just one of five games that he recorded at least 135 receiving yards.

When looking at the ideal fit for the Giants offense, Hyatt could be their guy. On the field, he has elite speed that defenders are forced to focus on. This was on clear display with how he tested an Alabama secondary full of elite talent.
