Rickey Hyatt Jr. is a playmaker with very good speed as shown 00:49 in the highlight video below when he spins twice to break tackles to run for a 63-yard touchdown. They also used him out of the wildcat. Hes excellent in coverage and has a good head for disrupting the run. Hyatt is very good at reading plays and has a great reaction time to pair with his speed. These tools may allow him to contribute in other areas of the field earlier than most. (DT Yates)
