2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Chris Hall, C, Texas
Over the last four years Chris Hall has been one of the least heralded players in all of college football. His consistent play on the offensive line has led to some dynamic offenses at Texas, but he rarely gets the national accolades that he deserves. His versatility and intelligence have made him a great player for the Longhorns and that success could continue in the NFL. Hall began his collegiate career as a reserve during his redshirt freshman campaign. However, a year later, Hall was a staple of the line. Not only did he start a dozen games that season, but he started at least one game at all five positions on the offensive line. Now that is the definition of versatility. By his junior season, Hall's intelligence made him a perfect candidate to take over at center on a permanent basis; besides missing a couple of games with a knee injury, Hall did just that and was tabbed as a second-team All-Big 12 honoree. The 2009 season went just as well and Hall again earned second team honors. While Hall may not measure out all that well to the NFL, few players are as smart and experienced as he is heading into the 2010 NFL Draft. That should be enough to get him drafted late in the process. 2/15 Update: Hall has not had much of an opportunity to show his stuff for NFL scouts. In the meantime, other centers like Kenny Alfred of Washington State, John Estes of Hawaii and Jacob Hickman of Nebraska are passing him on many draft boards. In order for that to stop, Hall has to have some quality individual workouts. In any event, Hall should find himself on a team that needs an experienced backup center.
