PLAYER OF SPECIAL INTRIGUE (PET CAT)
I would be remiss not to mention the unique fit of Bryce Hall when considering the Cowboys secondary needs. Hall is projected as a corner and expected to leave the board in the second or third round.
Solely as a corner, Hall would be worthy of a third round selection. He led the NCAA in pass deflections (21) his Junior year. This feat earned preseason All-American honors going into his final season.
Hall then showed a penchant for giving up the deep ball before being injured after six games. He also flashed many plays of covering massive amounts of ground to recover at times. Not only is he big and a very physical tackler, he has great range.
Hall needs to fine tune some flaws to become a reliable starting corner, yet would still contribute early. However, his physical traits and impressive range are an ideal fit at safety. He blitzes like a runaway truck and would blanket tight ends with ease.
Hall is the opposite of Byron Jones. He’d be a standout starting safety, but less consistent starting corner. His skill set allows playing either position where needed. As a versatile asset, drafting Hall would boost the Dallas secondary for years to come.
