Emmanuel Hall, Missouri, Wide Receiver

Here’s an athlete who deserves more attention. Hall had consistent production at Mizzou as a deep threat and he continued his consistency with a fantastic combine. Here are his numbers:

40 yard dash: 4.39 seconds
Vertical Jump: 43.5 inches
Broad Jump: 11’9″

Hall didn’t disappoint in the few events he participated in. For a receiver who isn’t a polished route runner, the combine was the best place to showcase some of his abilities. His 40 yard dash proved to teams he can continue being a big play threat to teams, and his vertical and broad jump should he has the athleticism to make tough catches in the air.

That obviously doesn’t mean he is that guy, but it’d be nice to see a receiver coach get the most out of an athlete like Hall. Hall has the tools to be more than a deep threat. If he lands in the right situation, he could find himself being more than a big play guy.

In regards to Hall’s draft stock, the combine may have elevated his draft stock but I don’t know how front offices perceived Hall before the combine. Teams have different ideas of how to use a receiver like him hence each teams view his value differently. If anything, it probably reaffirmed the idea that if a team were to draft him, they are getting a speed demon.
