Mitch Hyatt (born February 6, 1997) is an American football offensive tackle who is currently a free agent. He played college football at Clemson.
A native of Sugar Hill, Georgia, Hyatt attended North Gwinnett High School, where he was three-year starter at left tackle for the Bulldogs, and an All-American offensive lineman as a senior.
In Hyatt's sophomore year, North Gwinnett faced defending state champion Grayson in the second round of the GHSA Class 6A playoffs, upsetting them 28–10, as Hyatt reportedly played Grayson's blue chip defensive end Robert Nkemdiche “to a draw.”
After an All-State junior season, in which he helped pave the way for North’s run to a GHSA Class 6A state runner-up finish, Hyatt verbally committed to Clemson.
Listed first team on the depth chart entering August camp in 2015, Hyatt was scheduled to become the first freshman since Barry Richardson in 2004 to start on the offensive line for Clemson. He started the season opener against Wofford at left tackle, the first true-freshman to do so for the Tigers since Phil Prince in 1944.
Hyatt was part of the Clemson team that defeated Alabama in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship by a score of 35–31. In 2017, Hyatt was named as the recipient of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy for the ACC's most outstanding blocker. Hyatt was the 8th Clemson lineman to receive this award, and the first since 1987.
As a senior in 2018, Hyatt became the 13th repeat winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy. He also became the Tigers' all time leader in snaps from scrimmage during the 2018 Louisville game.
He finished with school records in career starts (57) and snaps played (3,754). He was a three-time first-team All-ACC selection and twice received the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the ACC Conference top offensive lineman.
