Clemson senior LT Mitch Hyatt (undisclosed) is expected to return for the second half of Saturday's game against Boston College.
Hyatt (6'5/310) left the game late in the first half due to his unspecified injury, and his return gives Clemson a boost on the offensive line. While Clemson did manage to put up 260 yards of offense in the first half, only 44 were gained on the ground (2.9 yards per carry). Nov 10 - 10:02 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Clemson senior T Mitch Hyatt improved his draft stock on Saturday during his performance against Florida State.

As Pauline notes, Hyatt was facing off against one of the best pass-rush duos in the country in Brian Burns and Janarius Robinson. Saying he was up to the task in the 59-10 thrashing of the Seminoles is an understatement. "Hyatt looked stout all day; he held his ground in pass protection, used his long arms to knock the FSU speed rushers from their angles and sealed defenders from the play to open up the running lanes," Pauline writes. Pauline believes that Hyatt (6'5/310) could be a mid-round pick this spring, and this will certainly help that possibility.

The Draft Network's Joe Marino believes Clemson senior T Mitch Hyatt is "closer to being a developmental project with modest traits than a high draft pick."

Marino listed Hyatt as his first player with the most to prove in 2018 among all ACC players. The former five-star lineman "is very poor with his hands. Offensive lineman need to be able to locate and time their punch in pass pro and Hyatt is guilty of routinely giving up his chest and allowing the pass rusher to dictate the rep. To make matters worse, his anchor is soft which compromises the width of the pocket." Marino doesn't hold back in his disinterest in Hyatt and claims his resume as a three-time all-ACC lineman would suggest a high draft pick, but his game tape shows otherwise. He will likely be a mid-round draft pick with upside come next spring.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Clemson senior T Mitch Hyatt a fourth-round grade heading into the 2018 season.

Hyatt had a bit of a mixed junior year for the Tigers, but he is certainly on NFL radars coming into the 2018 campaign. Pauline thought he was going to see an nonathletic tackle on tape, but came away "pleasantly surprised." "Hyatt does a great job bending his knees, staying square and using both blocking angles and body positioning to seal the edge," writes Pauline. "I’m not sold on his ability to play left tackle at the next level, but I think he can start on Sundays, potentially at right tackle or guard." Just another Clemson player to keep an eye on this fall.
Jul 29 - 12:58 PM's Chase Goodbread lists Clemson vs. Florida State as the third-best game of the 2018 season in terms of NFL talent.

This contest will take place on October 27, if you're a planner. While the focus will be on Clemson's ridiculously loaded defensive line, Goodbread lists a Seminole defensive lineman vs. a Tiger tackle as the match-up to watch: Florida State's Brian Burns against Clemson's Mitch Hyatt. The Tigers will be a considerable favorite to win this contest, but there is plenty of next-level talent on both clubs.

Clemson junior T Mitch Hyatt announced he will return to school for the 2018 season.

"I have some unfinished business on the field and I know another year will benefit me," Hyatt said. The left tackle just completed his third season as a starter, a huge accomplishment. He was a part of the outstanding line play in front of Deshaun Watson during the 2016 season, but on an individual basis, 2017 likely was his best year.

NFL Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline was impressed with how Clemson junior T Mitch Hyatt performed on Saturday against Boston College.

Hyatt was going up against a tough Boston College defensive line -- particularly potential high-pick Harold Landry -- and Pauline believes the sophomore more than held his own. "I’m still not sold Hyde projects to left tackle at the next level," Pauline said "but it was a very good showing for the big man." Hyatt will likely start 2018 as one of the top offensive line prospects in the country.

Clemson freshman T Mitch Hyatt played more snaps (1,067) than any true freshman last season.

Hyatt, ESPN's No. 18 overall recruit in the last cycle, became the starting left tackle for the runner-up Tigers right out of the gate after Isaiah Battle departed for the NFL via the Supplemental Draft. "He had his struggles in pass-protection at minus-8.7 (two sacks, three hits, 21 hurries on 558 attempts) though he held his own as a run-blocker at minus-0.1," wrote Steve Palazzolo.

Clemson G Eric Mac Lain believes starting LT Mitch Hyatt can be a freshman all-american.

Hyatt takes over for Isaiah Battle, who departed for the NFL via the Supplemental Draft. The truth is Hyatt could be an immediate improvement over Battle. Clemson's offensive line is their biggest question and could hold back a loaded offense.

Clemson co-OC Jeff Scott believes freshman LT Mitch Hyatt has the "it factor."

"He's very serious about what he's doing. He's a hard worker," Scott said. Hyatt is on track to see immediate playing time with Isaiah Battle jumping to the NFL through the supplemental draft. The 6'5/270 lbs tackle was considered a five-star prospect by many services. Scott is in his first season as offensive coordinator after Chad Morris joined SMU as their head coach.
