Breaking Down DC Cyrus Jones and DC Deiondre' Hall

Cyrus Jones – DC/RS – Alabama Size – 5096v – 196v – 4.48 (Est) Strong Points – Tough and competitive. Has the required quickness, flexibility and speed. Tracks the ball well. Can play press or zone. Good in run support and a good tackler. Very good punt returner. Has long arms allowing him to play taller than he measures. Weak Points – Being that he is under 5’10, some clubs won’t have him on their draft board. Can give too much cushion in off coverage. Transition needs to improve. Summation – Two year starter for Alabama and their punt returner. Has been a productive corner with 7 career interceptions. Shows some inconsistencies in coverage but when he is on his game he can be very good. His lack of ideal club with keep some clubs from drafting him. Can come in and be a clubs number 1 punt returner while he further develops his coverage skills. See him eventually becoming a starting slot corner. His punt return skills will get him drafted higher than his coverage skills.     Deiondre’ Hall – DC – Northern Iowa Size – 6015v – 192v – 4.50 (Est) Strong Points – Tall with rare length (34 ¾” arms). Good athlete with deceptive speed. Plays the ball well (13 career interceptions). Quick to support the run and a good tackler. Good jam and can turn and run. Alert in zone. Has the frame to get to 210-215. Weak Points – Raw, gets tall with his pedal and isn’t real nifty with his footwork. Played some free safety and would bite on play action. Needs to add bulk and strength. Plays at a lower level of comp. Summation– Reminds me some of Charles Tillman when he was coming out. Hall is very tall and long but also lean and raw. Tillman has awful footwork entering his first camp and Hall’s may be a little better. Can play press and reacts to the ball. With his long arms he has a distinct advantage and he has good hands. Going to need a year to develop the finer points in coverage but the upside is there. Tillman was a high 2nd round pick, Hall won’t go as high but he won’t be far behind because of his upside.
