EARLY 2018 PROJECTION: No. 16 DT in his class, which would have translated in the 2017 draft as a 6th rounder
2016 STATS: 13 sacks, 56 tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss – Southland Defensive Player of the Year
Hall has been a terror for SHSU opponents since he showed up and dominated as a freshman in 2014. He is just an uber-athletic talent who not only can contribute defensively, but also has made quite the name for himself on special teams — where he's just as tough to stop. He loves to block a kick, it's kind of a hobby of his. There's a reason he was one of four SHSU players named to the HERO Sports FCS All-America Team.
