Explanation of Player Grading System


Strengths

Experience at all 5 positions on the offensive line. Does a nice job getting to the 2nd level. Takes good angles on blocks. Decent footwork. Keeps his head on a swivel, showing adequate awareness. Average height/weight.

Weaknesses

Has trouble facing nose tackles. Doesn’t play with ideal leverage. Can use more upper body strength as he is often over-powered by stronger defensive linemen. Doesn’t pick up stunting defensive lineman as effectively as you’d like. Loses leverage as he tends to bend at his waist and will get caught reaching.

Analysis

Hall will find a home on an NFL roster with his experience playing at every position along the offensive line. He has enough experience to run a scout team effectively and could provide good depth with his versatility. A high character player with solid work ethic. Will need to further develop before being able see any significant playing time at the next level.

Experience

As a sophomore, played in all 13 games, starting 12. Hall started at least one game at every position on the offensive line during his sophomore season. Found a home at center and started every game (except for 2 missed by injury as a junior) at center his final two seasons.
