Scouting Report: Strengths
- Fantastic athlete with impressive size (6-6 and close to 280 lbs) - Has elite speed - his coaches report him being faster than Payton Turner who hit out 21.5 MPH on the GPS and Hall is even quicker
- Hall has remarkable physical gifts and incredible length as an interior pass rusher (6’5 1/2” with 33 3/8” arms and an 80 1/4” wingspan)
- Has the versatility to line up as a 3-technique and line up on the edge
- A natural pass rusher with elite speed and impressive interior pass-rushing moves. Has an excellent swim move as well as a quality counter spin
- Has very heavy, violent hands and a very strong anchor which enables him to dominate blockers in pass protection
- Good not great quickness and change of direction agility. Chases, using a long spin move to clear blocks. Low, strong off the line.
- Sacks and pressures are the product of hustle. Gives effort on every play. Holds the point with length and very long arms and a strong upper body.
- Very strong and powerful and has an elite bull-rush and effortlessly forces guards back into the QB
- Flashes nimble feet to chase running backs and mobile quarterbacks to the sideline when lined up at end. Spins off blocks to get back into the play.
- Elite change of direction skills for a man of his size
- Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
- On Bruce Feldman's Freaks List -- "The 6-7, 275-pound Hall was unblockable in spring ball. He’s added about 35 pounds in the past three years and is a 375-pound bencher and 365 in the clean."
- Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
- Joined in 2018 as a 225-pound defensive end. Bulked up over the years to become more of an interior player and hasn't lost any speed
- An unnamed NFL scout at the senior bowl said "Hall showcased a lightning first step and offensive linemen have not been able to stay in front of him."
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Average athletically with average straight-line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
- May be tall for an interior lineman and struggle with leverage
- Needs to improve his hand movement - sometimes struggles disengaging
- Has had limited playing time- with only one full year as a starter at Houston
- Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
- Sometimes has no answer if his first move doesn't work - needs to develop more of a counter
- Could be regarded as a bit of a tweener - too big to play at edge but not big enough to be considered a full-time DT
- Not always the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
Scouting Report: SummaryHall is an amazing athlete possessing an elite combination of strength, height, long arms, and ridiculous speed as well as change of direction skills. He also is a natural run defender who seems to spend half his game in the backfield - he's just too powerful for most interior linemen to handle. His upside is immense and has the skills to be elite at the NFL level - he, however, represents a bit of a risk as his playing time at Houston has been limited, and has only had a single year as a full-time starter. In addition, NFL teams may struggle to find a perfect spot for him to play and isn't a natural fit in most defensive systems
We look at Logan Hall as a developmental prospect but with quite possibly the highest upside of anybody in the class and well worth a second-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
