Overview:

Hall finished his career at Sam Houston State, where he played in 56 career games, had 284 tackles, 86.0 for loss, 42.0 sacks, 3 interceptions, 9 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovered. He has great size, good speed for his size, is a tackling machine, and a sack machine. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is also a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is very powerful, he commands double teams, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He also gets a good push on the offensive line, he powers his way through the offensive line in pursuit of the ball carrier, and he does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage. On the other hand, he has issues with fast running backs at times. With that said, I view Hall as a day 3 pick.
