At Texas A&M, Coryatt became the centerpiece of outstanding Aggies defensive units (nicknamed "Wrecking Crew"), along with players like Mark Wheeler, Marcus Buckley, Kevin Smith, Derrick Frazier, and Patrick Bates.
In his junior season, he gained notoriety in a nationally televised game in 1991 by knocking out Texas Christian University wide receiver Kyle McPherson with a ferocious hit on a pass over the middle, breaking McPherson's jaw in three places. ESPN named it the "Hit of the Year". In his junior season, the Aggie defense ranked first in the nation. He was selected second team All-American and all-SWC, and also was named the SWC Defensive Player of the Year.
Coryatt elected to forgo his senior season and declare for the 1992 NFL Draft. Projected as the No. 1 linebacker available in a draft that also included Robert Jones and Levon Kirkland, Coryatt was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1st round with the second overall pick. It was the highest draft position in A&M history since John David Crow in 1958.
Coryatt played in 78 games over a six-year stretch for the Colts, and although he was a solid contributor, he never lived up to the stardom that was expected of him by virtue of his high draft status.
After spending the 1998 season on injured reserve, Coryatt joined the Cowboys for the 1999 season, appearing in four games for Dallas. Coryatt retired after the 1999 season.
