Draft Profile: Bio
For his high school career, Jaren Hall had 5,109 passing yards and 52 touchdowns and as a result, the No. 3 quarterback in Utah by Scout and Rivals ranked him the No. 20th dual-threat quarterback in the nation in the 2016 class

Following high school, Hall opted to join BYU.

After redshirting the 2018 season Hall played little as a freshman seeing action in 4 games for the Cougars as he threw for 420 yards on 46 attempts with a completion percent of 67.4 for an average of 9.1 yards per pass, with one TD, while taking 4 sacks, for a QB rating of 103.5.

Hall missed 2020 with an injury that sidelined him for the whole year, he bounced back in 2021 as a sophomore as in 10 games as he put up 2583 yards on 296 attempts with a completion percentage of 63.9 for an average of 8.7 yards per pass, adding 20 TDs in the air, while also taking 12 sacks, and putting up a QB rating of 107.1. He also finished the year as BYU's second-leading rusher with 62 carries for 307 net yards and three touchdowns, averaging five yards per carry.

At the end of the season he was awarded with a spot on the Phil Steele All-Independent First Team, named Pro Football Network Independent Quarterback of the Year and the handed a spot on the Pro Football Network First Team All-Independent Offense.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • A former baseball player - and it shows in his fastball delivery
  • Seems to have a natural affinity for the position - so even as a first-year quarterback he looked composed
  • Physically, Hall is a natural athlete who plays with the balance and light feet to float in the pocket.
  • Hall is enough of a threat as a runner to earn respect from back-side defenders at the next level, opening opportunities for running backs.
  • Good accuracy overall, including excellent accuracy on short timing routes to backs and receivers, placing the ball slightly in front to lead receivers to potential yardage after the catch.
  • Possesses a strong right arm and is capable of making every NFL throw easily. Can drive the deep out to the sideline from the opposite hash and has no problem threading the needle between closing defenders. Easily zips to all areas of the field, demonstrating very good touch on underneath routes to running backs and receivers, as well as down the sideline on deep passes.
  • Dual-threat quarterback with athletic footwork and mobility. An instinctive runner with very good toughness - uses stiff arms and runs with good body strength.
  • Is a composed player with the ability to quickly read the defense and works through his reads quickly
  • Accurate and has the touch to deliver the ball where only his receivers can catch it
  • Patient in the pocket - does not take off too early and bail out too early on plays
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He has under-average height at just 6-1 and weighs in at only 205 lbs. May lack the bulk to stay healthy at the next level has had a chequered injury history
  • He’s clearly more effective when on the move, and many of his reads were half-field.
  • His arm strength is decent but not elite; Accuracy becomes an issue when he’s unable or unwilling to set his feet.
  • Hall has a bad habit of fading and throwing off his back foot when the pocket gets muddled, and he is too often all arm when throwing on the move, sacrificing accuracy.
  • He's overaged - will be 25 by the time of the draft - and despite this, he also lacks full time playing experience
Scouting Report: Summary
Jaren Hall is a dynamic quarterback who is a threat as both a runner and a passer for the cougars. He's got a quality arm and is able to make pretty much every throw needed in the NFL, in addition, Hall has proved to be a quick-thinking smart QB with a high football IQ. The major downside with Hall is one he, unfortunately, can't do anything about - he's undersized without the ability to back on much more mass and has struggled with injuries.

If he can prove he can stay healthy in 2022 while continuing to put up good numbers Hall has the chance to be a starting pro-level player and as a result, will likely be selected in the second or third round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
