Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Logan Hall is a high cut, slender athlete on the DL with outstanding height, but limited weight relative to his frame and normal 3-5 Techs. Has converted his weight significantly from HS after coming in as a true edge prospect at 225, getting up to 241 as a true FR and SOPH, and then (as a he increased his role) getting up to 260 as a JR before finally finishing at 275 lbs. as a SR. At the NFL Combine, he had gained approx. 8 lbs. since the 2021 season. Has average overall length with average arm length (limited relative to his size) and adequate shoulder width. Has increased the build in his hips and rear most over time, with an average build there. Above the line durability and frame and isn't listed to have had any injuries during his college career even though he wore a brace on his right elbow throughout 2020 and 2021, which ultimately led to surgery after the 2021 AAC Championship game vs. Cincinnati before Houston’s Birmingham Bowl game vs. Auburn (DNP). He was back playing in early February 2022 at the Senior Bowl, so it couldn't have been a significant surgery.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Logan Hall has adequate toughness and played across the DL for Houston (0-5-Tech) effectively and with physicality to hold up. Adequate initial strike and flashed knock back but struggled against Doubles or head-up as a 2-Gapper due to his disproportionate length to his height that made it hard for him to lock out. Limited instincts and FBIQ against Pass and had to take multiple read steps on various occasions on both before he initiated contact on an OL (at first seemed that he had poor get off, being the last one off the ball at DL on multiple occasions). Not an anticipatory rusher and struggled when he did try to jump the snap, lunging too much so that he could maintain leverage. Better vs. Run, where he could set and go with adequate feel on blockers and adequate ability to maintain his gap and leverage at the POA. Above the line effort and has very active hands and wins often in the 2nd part of the snap. There are many plays of him running and chasing in pursuit as well.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Logan Hall has adequate explosiveness especially playing cross-face or on stunts and twists due to his ability to gain width quickly laterally while also flashing adequate initial strike to displace OL in 1v1s. Inconsistent explosiveness in his get off (hard to gage considering limited instincts against Pass). Outstanding speed in space to hawk down ball-carriers. Adequate but inconsistent body control, and plays very within himself at times, while at other times he can try to lunge too much or bend his shoulders forward too much trying to create leverage, therefore losing his balance. Doesn’t get knocked off the point often. Adequate flexibility with natural bend in his ankles and knees, with average ability to bend the corner. Struggles with hip stiffness. Light feet with above the line COD and lateral agility that creates mismatches for when Hall is given space to work. Adequate play strength and excels when he can get home in the middle of an OL’s chest either with a 1-arm or both with above the line ability to drive his feet on contact.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Logan Hall has inconsistent get off (therefore it’s hard to gage), but when he’s on, he can be adequate. Average in Pass Rush and wins in the 2nd phase of the snap mostly while struggling to win initially consistently due to get off and instincts at the snap, while showing limited bend in his hips that will hinder him from consistently bending the corner from a 5-Tech. Does, however, have above the line hand quickness that helps with keeping him clean from blockers taking advantage of his frame that creates naturally higher leverage along with struggling to bend in his hips. Adequate initial strike and has adequate hand strength to be effective. Adequate at the POA. Will struggle to improve his average disengage ability due to his length. Already has well developed UOH and a Pass Rush plan (specifically excels with his cross swipe and swim move). Outstanding closing speed toward the ball which translates with his ability to close toward the ball running to the perimeter or downfield. Above the line suddenness due to flashing with his reactionary athleticism with adequate twitch/flexibility due to some hip stiffness but adequate ankle and knee flexibility. Has outstanding play temperament and rarely is seen taking plays off.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
SR who has started 23 of 46 games, including 12 of 13 in 2021. 3-star HS prospect who was listed at 225 in HS and increased his weight to approx. 240 for his 1st 2 years at Houston before he gained more weight and became a regular starter on the DL in 2020. Has steadily increased his production while at Houston statistically including as a Pass Rusher, where he only produced 1.5 Sacks over his first 3 years before he set a career high in Sacks in 2021 with 6.5. Senior Bowl attendee. Played under HC Dana Holgerson (3rd season), Associate HC/DC Doug Belk (3rd season), and Brian Early (3rd season). Logan Hall projects initially as a Developmental Backup with traits with potential to be a Functional Starter down the line. He has a skill set that is hard to hammer down as to where he’d fit positionally at the next level but has the athleticism, developmental upside, and in-game effort to potentially be successful down the line. He projects as a 5-Tech DE (with 3-Tech flexibility in "Rabbits") in a 4-3 or 3-5 Tech DE in a 3-4 with experience along the Defensive Front but not enough girth or length to consistently be successful as a true DT. Has limited ability to be effective on 3rd Down immediately in the NFL but could provide early down Run-stopping ability due to his Run instincts, hand strength, and block awareness.
