Injuries: Had a groin injury in 2018.
History: Three-star recruit from Franklin, TN. Multi-sport star at Centennial High School. Was also a track star, winning the Tennessee State High Jump Championship. Also competed in the AAU Junior Olympic track, winning gold medals in 2011, taking first nationally in both the pentathlon and high jump.
Strengths: Excellent athlete, world class track star. Tested extremely well at the combine. Excellent burst, can blow by people off the release. Explosive (141″ broad jump at combine). Has good short area quickness, can sink his hips. Has really high upside as a route runner.
Weaknesses: Questionable hands. Doesn’t possess ball skills. Has had his fair share of drops. Needs to show that he can make plays in traffic. Route tree was limited at Missouri. Route running has upside but needs work. Not a ton of experience dealing with press-man, and hasn’t faired very well. Is not the most physical of receivers, has been bullied around a little, especially throughout his routes.
Overview: Hall possesses decent size and is one of the best athletes in this draft. He is still fairly raw, in terms of route running and his ball skills are lacking. He needs to make more plays outside of go routes. Could really benefit from a coach that can get the ball in his hands, something Missouri didn’t do much. He’s a good upside pick, but would take a year or two to get up and running. He’s best suited as a Z receiver, that can help him get a clean release at the line of scrimmage.
