BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter and previous All-Conference selection who totaled 100/6.5/3.5 as a senior, intercepting one pass and breaking up four more. Missed four games with a fractured wrist. Junior-year totals included 128/10.5/2. Sophomore-year numbers included 112/8.5/3.
POSITIVES: Active, instinctive run-stuffing linebacker. Quickly diagnoses plays, explodes up the field, and slices through the small gaps of the offense to make the tackle. Displays good awareness, takes good angles to the play, and remains disciplined with assignments. Fluid changing direction, collapses from the outside defending the run, and wraps up when tackling. Displays solid footwork in reverse, gets depth on pass drops, and effective in zone coverage. Plays faster than his 40 time. Quarterbacks the defense and gets his teammates in proper position.
NEGATIVES: Average strength at the point and struggles taking on blocks. Lacks the blinding lateral speed and the ability to cut off the corner.
ANALYSIS: Hall is a productive defender with a passion for the game. He is an intelligent prospect who gets the most from his abilities and plays beyond his size/speed numbers. Hall offers possibilities at a number of linebacker spots and is a middle-round selection who could surprise at the next level.
