BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his junior and senior campaigns.
POSITIVES: Hard-working blocker with adequate size. Quick in all aspects of the game, displays solid footwork sliding off the edge, and anchors in pass protection. Effectively works his hands throughout the action, shows the ability to adjust, and jolts opponents with good hand-punch. Nasty and shows a large degree of toughness to his game. Quick in his head picking up assignments and works well with teammates.
NEGATIVES: Not a dominant drive-blocker and marginally effective opening holes for the running game. Gets minimal results blocking in motion.
ANALYSIS: Hale is an intelligent blocker who gets the most from his abilities. He has enough skill to find a spot as a reserve offensive tackle.
