  • Class: Senior
Table inside Article
Tall and lengthy frame on the interior, Hall uses that length to affect passing lanes and gain leverage on blockers. Good hands at the first punch and drives backward when he keeps his pads low. Good quickness from side to side and never gives up on a play. On the lighter side for an NFL interior lineman. Hall could see some early troubles keeping his feet and trying to anchor. May even need some tweaking in his footwork and hand-fighting as well. Could add some extra emphasis on pass-rush ability.

OVERVIEW: There aren't a ton of 6-foot-6, 291-pound guys that make their living as a defensive tackle in the NFL. Hall could either try to be one of the few, or he could be utilized as a versatile defensive lineman or special teams ace. During his time at Baylor, he shined over three seasons as a starter, earning All-Big 12 honors as a sophomore in 2022. He showed an ability to help the run, but really excelled as a pass rusher. His frame and athleticism could fit in a number of places. It's ultimately up to the organization that drafts him.
