Why Achane and Hyatt Lead the List

Few college football players have blazed a path toward the pros like the Texas A&M running back and the Tennessee do-it-all receiver.

Achane is coming off a junior season where he eclipsed 1,000 yards for the first time (finishing with 1,102 yards on 196 carries), while Hyatt was a one-man tour de force out wide for the Volunteers, with 1,267 yards on 67 receptions with 10 touchdowns.

Hyatt’s 18.9 yards per reception average in 2022 ranked 13th in the nation, and the second highest of any wideout with at least 1,000 yards (behind Oklahoma’s Marvin Mims Jr.).

Achane, meanwhile, finished 2022 with a heady 5.6 yards per carry and eight rushing touchdowns, spearheading an Aggies offense that struggled for much of the season.

The junior capped off his time in College Station with a legendary performance against the fifth-ranked LSU Tigers, carrying the ball 38 times for 215 yards and two scores, showing the type of durability and versatility NFL teams crave out of the backfield.

Achane moves to the top of the 40-yard dash list because of his track and field speed. He has the ninth fastest time in school history in the 100-meter dash (10.14 seconds in March 2022) and was a first-team All-American in 2021 as part of the Aggies 400-meter relay team.

Hyatt ran track in high school. In 2022, he led the nation with 11 catches for more than 40 yards, regularly running by SEC defenses.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah sees Hyatt going 25th overall to the Giants, though the top-ranked prospect of the six players mentioned above is Gonzalez, who Jeremiah has going 14th overall to the Patriots. Gonzalez had four interceptions for the Ducks in 2022.

Who Else Could Set 40-Yard Dash Ablaze?  

Other players to keep an eye on during this year’s combine are Cincinnati wideout Tre Tucker and TCU wide receiver Derius Davis.

Both thrived out of the slot for the Bearcats and Horned Frogs this fall, with the pair pulling in 94 receptions for more than 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns between them.

East Carolina running back Keaton Mitchell is also on this list after more than 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground last fall.

All six will be looking to catch the eye of scouts, coaches and GM’s alike during this year’s combine and know the 40-yard dash is a great place to do just that.
