New York Giants sign Jalin Hyatt to rookie contract

The New York Giants moved one step closer to getting their entire 2023 NFL draft class under contract on Monday, signing wide receiver Jalin Hyatt to his rookie deal.

Hyatt was selected in the third round of April’s draft after the Giants traded up to nab him. General manager Joe Schoen sent picks No. 89 and 128 to the Los Angeles Rams as part of that agreement.

β€œI think he’s a good player. I think he runs some of the routes that we run here,” head coach Brian Daboll said of Hyatt. β€œHe’s a young guy. We’ll throw him in the mix with the other receivers and let those guys compete it out. A good visit here. Definitely has some qualities that you like when you’re watching him. Good young man. So, happy we have him.”

β€œHe can roll,” Schoen added. β€œI was at that Alabama game. I can’t remember why I came in late, but I was a little bit late. But I was on the field for the first half. I was coming from another game, landed there, and first half I was on the field, and you could really feel his speed. It’s legit 4.3.”

Hyatt joins running back Eric Gray, cornerback Tre Hawkins III, defensive tackle Jordon Riley and safety Gervarrius Owens as rookies from the team’s draft class that are now under contract.

Cornerback Deonte Banks and center John Michael Schmitz have not yet signed their rookie deals.
