Explosive playmakers for the Buffalo Bills to target on Day 2: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

We have talked extensively about this kid, and if the Bills somehow ended up with him, Buffalo would be in excellent position going forward. Their offense could wind up being the best in the league. After adding Kincaid in Round 1, getting a guy like Jalin Hyatt would feel like a dream.

It would also mean Hyatt falls a bit, or the Bills trade up for him. He stands six feet tall, runs a 4.4 40-yard dash and boasts a 40-inch vertical to go with an 11-foot-3 broad jump. In short, he is a stud athlete.

Hyatt would give the Bills three formidable options at wide receiver, and could very likely supplant Gabe Davis as the no. 2 option as a rookie.

One thing to be careful of with Hyatt is to overlook his 40-yard dash time. 4.4 is a great time, but when he’s on the field, he’s even faster. He is able to operate so smoothly to fly by corners and safeties that, once they realize just how fast he’s accelerating, it’s too late.

It’s one thing to have speed, but Hyatt has elite acceleration. Once he’s hit that top gear (and he hits it quickly), he’s gone.
