Logan Hall 2022 NFL Draft Profile
After spending the entirety of his collegiate career at Houston, interior defensive lineman Logan Hall is set to take his talents to the next level in the 2022 NFL Draft. Hall is coming off the best season of his storied career, recording seven sacks, seven quarterback hits, 16 hurries, 10 tackles-for-loss, and 20 run stops during his final year of action.
Hall originally joined Houston as a two-star recruit in the 2018 class. After spending his first two seasons as a rotational player, the Texan native finally earned a chance to start during his Junior season. During that breakout campaign, Hall recorded one sack and two tackles-for-loss on 360 snaps.
Throughout the course of his collegiate career, Hall recorded eight sacks, 97 tackles, 19.5 tackles-for-loss, and one forced fumble. Now, he hopes to bring those skills to the professional level.

Bottom Line on Logan Hall
Logan Hall is the type of defensive tackle that could only thrive in today’s pass-happy NFL. The interior defensive lineman is going to be one of the smallest players at his position, but he makes up for that with his speed and quickness. Blessed with a great reaction time, Hall uses his long arms, speed, and aggressive play style to get right to the quarterback.
Teams are throwing the ball more often than ever before, so Hall’s ability to bring pressure from the interior is going to get him on the field. However, you probably won’t see him too often in short-yardage situations. At 283 pounds, Hall is much too small to handle run blocking duties with any sort of consistency. Additionally, he’s best suited playing over tackle and can get manhandled by interior linemen if they get their hands on him. In essence, Hall should start off his career as an effective situation pass rusher and should have the chance to start if he can add a few more pounds.
