PJ Hall Draft Profile

PJ Hall draft profile

Strengths:

  • Ultra-productive
  • Powerful
  • Quick burst off snap
  • Point of attack beast
  • Athletic
  • Leverage
  • Mirrors QB scramble well
  • Blocks kicks on the regular

Analysis: If you look at the stats PJ Hall racked up during his time at Sam Houston State, it is truly astounding. He totaled 86.5 tackles for loss and 42 sacks for his career, completely dominating his level of competition. He has compact frame and packs explosive power. He is ultra-quick off the snap with early hands. Sharp upward thrust into blocker establishes leverage. Owned point of attack against his competition. Able to brace up against double teams. Equally powerful with upper and lower body. Athletic and rangy as tackler. Drives under and through the guard’s edge. With the Bearkats he was able to rush the passer with a dominant bull rush. He mirrors the quarterback with his eyes and is always around when the quarterback scrambles. His 14 career blocked kicks is absolutely insane.

Weaknesses:

  • Lacks ideal size for position
  • Length
  • Additional weight impacted conditioning
  • Needs to fight against down blocks better
  • How will he do against powerful NFL lineman?

Analysis: Saying PJ Hall is over six-foot is being generous. He lacks the ideal size for the defensive line–he even tried to carry additional weight this past season, but he was clearly slower with the extra bulk, hurting one of his best qualities (burst and athleticism). Additional weight appeared to impact conditioning and fatigue levels. Faced very few opponents who could match his strength on FCS level. Fails to feel and brace for down blocks and can be big-boyed out of the gap by size. At times, his effort level was lacking on tape.
