WT: 205 lbs
High School: Longview (Longview, TX)
Accolades: Senior Bowl.
Speed/Athleticism: Incredible quickness and body control. Has the ability to stop and turn on a dime. He doesn’t possess straight-line speed but is extremely quick and agile on his feet. Makes defenders miss with excellent footwork and escapability.
Contact Balance: Hasty shows the explosiveness and quickness to have excellent contact balance, but unfortunately he seems to lack core strength to keep himself upright. He struggles to bully past defenders despite his explosiveness.
Receiving Ability: Excellent receiver out of the backfield. Good solid hands can make catches without looking in the ball and with ease. Excellent route runner, as his quickness and stop and go ability prove to be very valuable. Could probably line up out of the slot in several systems.
Blocking Ability: When Hasty makes the correct read and gets on the block, he’s solid. However, he seems to struggle with chip-and-go concepts a good bit. Sometimes doesn’t see the field well and blocks the wrong person.
Field Vision/Football IQ: Field vision is pretty good for Hasty, but it could be better. You see lanes open up sometimes before he does. Football IQ is about average. Makes good decisions most of the time, but struggles to really see the field at times.
Overall: JaMycal Hasty is a project, but a very intriguing one. He has tools that can be used almost immediately, but the complete package isn’t quite there yet and he just needs to work on building his core strength and working through contact. Once he does that, he can be an electric contributor to an offense.
