Packers must target Jalin Hyatt

Jalin Hyatt doesn't meet all of the Packers' wide receiver thresholds, but they be willing to make an exception for the 2022 Biletnikoff Award winner.

Hyatt is a game-changer. He is also a great athlete, with a Relative Athletic Score of 8.76 out of 10. Hyatt has the deep speed to punish defenses. As we saw with Christian Watson last season, speed kills.

"When he appears to be at his max speed, Hyatt can reach an otherworldly gear, accelerating with long, efficient strides," wrote Pro Football Network's James Fragoza.

Defenses have enough of a challenge trying to prevent Christian Watson from taking over the game. Think about the endless possibilities Packers head coach Matt LaFleur would have with Watson and Hyatt on the field at the same time. One mistake from a defensive back, and it's game over.

Even when the ball isn't going their way, having Watson and Hyatt on the field would create space underneath for other pass-catchers to dominate -- perhaps a rookie tight end the Packers draft in the early rounds.

Hyatt is one of the most exciting players in the entire class. He is only 176 pounds, which may concern the Packers, but he has game-changing potential.
