He scored 3 TDs this season where he had to make guys miss to score.
He improved a lot with his strength, feet, and
Stands to reason he could continue that improvement in those areas.
Even if he didn't, you are missing the point of having an accurate QB in the NFL.
Most WR work to get better at skills J Hyatt already has.
You're severely underestimating his other attributes.
- reading coverage
- constant acceleration
- field awareness
- knack for the big play
- body control
- wing span (wide catch radius)
You're talking about him as if he didn't torch Alabama and all their future NFL Dbs for
200 yards and 5 TDs in one game lol!
Why in the world can you not see why???
you didn't mention any of the things I pointed out. He is not a shifty guy he relies on straight-line speed and defenders being out of position. Yes, Heupels scheme is about WRs reading coverage and taking advantage of mismatches. He does not beat guys with cuts or jukes or double moves. He is not fighting through a jam at the line. He runs by guys and splits zones. They stack receivers in front of him to prevent dbs getting their hands on him. Go back and look, half his TDs are on busted plays. Take away the bama game and he never had another amazing game. 1/3 of his total tds came in that game heck damn near 1/4 his career td's are from that game. If you take that game away hes not even in the first-team all-SEC conversation.
Yes he has a decent wingspan for a 6 footer.... Body control? Where is that coming from? Dude caught bombs lol where are these highlight reel circus catches to substantiate that claim? There are no toe taps, diving catches, shake and bakes on tape. Those were Keyton and Mccoy. He is fast, reads coverage well, has good hands, good attitude, became a hard worker. Running by a guy that's releasing you from his zone because he thinks he has help over the top is not the same as running by a guy in man. In almost all his TD he was matched up with a safety. Also note in the video posted earlier some of those TD are from 20 and 21 and were in garbage time against backups. There's one in there from Shrout lol
Hyatt had an awesome season, mostly based on one game.and its gonna get him an opportunity he probably would have had. Truth be told he'd probably be a better WR if he stayed another year but he would have been stupid not to take this shot now. I truly with him the best and hope im wrong. I hope he puts on some weight and shows the world his craft. But until then I think Tillman is a way better NFL prospect than him ... by far. Second issue he has in the draft. THis is a year of smurf WR's and most of the other smurfs have better resumes than him (more than 1 year of excellence and or special teams experience)
I am just gonna wait till pro day times are in because 4.41? if he was a 4.2 even 4.3 guy maybe but 4.41? Thats fast but not fast enough to make up for 175lbs Velus is having a good start to his career.. he ran a 4.31 and is 204lbs same height, can run full route tree, and is amazing on special teams. See my point? Take away the Bama game and compare those 2 guys' tape.
