His biggest concern with Hyatt is his ability to handle opposing defensive backs in press coverage. With a long, slender frame, his play strength is questionable. Hyatt's route tree is somewhat limited as he specializes mainly in running vertical routes with some slants. Limitations with his route tree could potentially hinder his production at the next level. With the right coaching, he should look to diversify his route tree. In one-on-one situations, Hyatt needs to be more physical in order to make more contested catches; play strength development will be key to his success at the next level.
