Giants sign WR Jalin Hyatt, third-round pick in 2023 NFL Draft, to rookie contract

Tennessee wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (11) looks back as he runs the ball in to score a touchdown during the NCAA college football game against Kentucky on Saturday, October 29, 2022 in Knoxville, Tenn.

Third-round pick Jalin Hyatt has signed his rookie contract with the Giants.

The team announced on Monday afternoon that Hyatt, the 6-foot, 185-pound wide receiver from Tennessee, has put pen to paper, making him the fifth member of the Giants' 2023 draft class to sign a contract.

With Hyatt now under contract, only first-round pick Deonte Banks and second-round pick John Michael Schmitz remain unsigned.

Hyatt hopes to bring some explosiveness to the Giants' wide receivers corps, as he was one of the best big-play receivers in the nation while with the Volunteers. In his final collegiate season, Hyatt caught 67 passes for 1,267 yards (18.9 yards per catch) and 15 touchdowns.
