STRENGTHS - His ability to anticipate and get moving quickly at the snap of the ball makes him dangerous blitzing off the edge. He has good footwork/backpedal and is able to transition and close quickly out of pedal. He reads the QB/Pass well and is able to plant, drive and close quickly on passes in front of him. He has a good burst to the receiver to make a play on ball to break up pass.
WEAKNESSES - Tight in the hips, Hall loses a step when he has to flip hips to turn and run with man off the LOS in man coverage. He is not physical or aggressive with hands to try and jolt/slow TE's release off the LOS and then loses a step when he tries to turn and run with him. Despite having the quickness to close quickly on plays he does not do it consistently - Hesitant driving on the ball and often seems content to allow teammates to make the play. Even when he is willing to make tackle, he does not wrap-up and use good technique consistently, which allows ball carrier to run thru his attempt to gain yards after contact. .
SUMMARY - Hall shows he has the athleticism and ability to play zone coverage well. He does a good job reading where the QB is going and has the closing speed to the receiver when the ball is thrown. His closing speed on the ball carrier is inconsistent and he tends to allow his teammates to make the play. At times he seems hesitant trying to make a tackle in the open field. In press man coverage his slow hip flip is a big concern as it leads to him losing a step right off the LOS. Hall is not a consistently physical player, which hinders his tackling and ability to jam TE to slow release. Overall, Hall is a good enough athlete to make an NFL team as a backup safety and special teams player. However, to make a roster he will need to become a more consistent tackler and improve his play when aligned in press coverage on the LOS. .
