Hall put up eye-popping numbers at his pro day and has incredible athleticism. Whether or not that translates into the pros remains to be seen, but Hall will get his chance to prove he deserves a roster spot.
A physical stud who ran in the 4.4 range for his forty and put up 24 bench press reps, Hall had over 100 tackles this year and also had three interceptions. However, he will have to add serious muscle if he wants to play linebacker in the pros.
Hall could be intriguing as a top special teams player in the NFL.
