One of draft's top WR prospects says he'd like to play in Kansas City and it could happen


(610 Sports) – Following a win in Super Bowl LVII, the Kansas City Chiefs now turn their sites on the 2023 NFL Draft. Despite having the last pick of the first round, the Chiefs could still end up with a dynamic wide receiver capable of stretching the field.

Not only could that player be available, it sounds like a player fitting that very profile has interest in playing for the Chiefs.

Former Tennessee Volunteers wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is one of the fastest and most productive prospects in this year's draft. The South Carolina native caught 67 passes for 1267 yards and 15 touchdowns in 12 games this past season.

Hyatt's 15 touchdowns in 2022 was a school record, with 5 of those coming in a 52-49 win over Alabama.

The speedy wide receiver spoke to reporters at the combine on Friday and he said that he wouldn't mind catching passes from Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City.

Hyatt also revealed that he watched some game film with Chiefs HC Andy Reid during a pre-draft meeting.

Hyatt's ability to stretch the field makes him a very intriguing fit in Kansas City, which would pair well with Mahomes' big arm and Andy Reid's offense.

It's very possible that Hyatt could go earlier than the Chiefs' 31st pick. While they probably shouldn't give up too much to trade up to get him, it's a scenario they should at least consider. We're already aware that the Chiefs know how to properly use the kind of elite speed that Hyatt possesses.
