He was a four-year starter and helped protect the blind sides of Deshaun Watson, Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence.
But even being an All-American offensive lineman for a national powerhouse doesn't guarantee anything when it comes to the NFL Draft. Mitch Hyatt found that out the hard way. But as an undrafted free agent,.Hyatt could pick and choose his landing spot and he chose the franchise with the big star on the helmet.
"I thought that would be the best fit for me, honestly," said Hyatt.
"That's what I thought. I'll come in here and learn from great veterans from the best o-line in the NFL."
Hyatt completed his rookie mini-camp with Dallas this past weekend and he's taking the same approach there as he did his first week in camp at Clemson.
"My goal is to just do my best I love learning. I love playing the game of football... kind of prove to myself what I can do and what I can do at my best."
