Love this pick.  Joe D had a strong first draft.

Bryce Hall CB/S Virginia

by Drew Boylhart • January 2, 2020

STRENGTHS
Bryce is a multi-talented, multi-position football player. He has the coverage skills to be one of the best cornerbacks in this draft. He also has the size and tackling skills along with the speed to play as a single safety, in the slot or up close to the line of scrimmage in any down and distance situation. He is smart and shows leadership skills beyond his age. He could be a coach on the field as well as your best cover corner. Bryce has the makeup speed and burst you like to see in any defensive back playing any position on your team. On film, Bryce shows the character and athletic talent along with the competitiveness needed to be a franchise defensive player for the team that selects him. I call him Bryce (Good Night) Hall because when he’s on the field your offense will go to sleep.

CONCERNS
He’s injury will affect his draft status for most teams in this draft, but it will not affect his play on the field when it is all said and done. Depending on how well he is healing and how fast he regains his pure speed, the team that selects him might have to “redshirt” him (so to speak) the first year. Reports are that Bryce broke his leg and dislocated his ankle.

BOTTOM LINE 1.41
Bryce is big enough, smart enough, physical enough, fast enough to even be moved to outside linebacker if need be. For me personally, if I’m drafting in the top ten selecting Bryce is a no brainer. I rate players who I believe have the needed talent, size, football IQ and leadership qualities above players who I believe are locked into just playing one position. I do this because coaches are fired and new coaches with new systems are hired. Looking from a GM or Ownership side, this makes players with multiple position qualities a priority to me. Bryce has multi-position qualities all over him and because of those qualities, I believe rating him as one of the top defensive backs in this draft is a no brainer. For me personally, he can’t sneak up any higher than I have him already rated on my talent board and that would be, as the 1st DB in this draft. Of course, he still has to show improvement and that his injuries are not career-ending injuries. To my knowledge, it might take some time to heal both injuries and regain his speed. That being said, my gut tells me, some playoff team is going to get very lucky when they find Bryce (Good Night) Hall still on the board, ready to be one of the future stars of their defense.

Ok. I just meant he went lower than expected due to an injury and maybe needs to start the yr on pup. I think it’s a great pick! 

Fair enough. I think he’s in a bit better shape with the injury than where Austin was but I see your point.
I seriously can’t believe we landed him. I’m in Chsrlottesville and he’s the man here. Everyone loves Bruce hall and joe reed

The 8 best late-round steals in the 2020 NFL Draft, including picks by Cowboys and 49ers

Vinnie Iyer  12 hrs ago
Several of the best late-round steals this year were wide receivers representing arguably the deepest modern class ever for the position. Others teams got steals because of injury concerns that couldn't be alleviated before the draft.
Which teams made out like bandits with players they had no business getting near at the end of their drafts? Here are eight picks that stood above the rest:

The best late-round steals from the 2020 NFL Draft

Cowboys: Tyler Biadasz, G/C, Wisconsin (fourth round, No 146 overall); DE Bradlee Anae, Utah (fifth round, No. 179 overall)

The Cowboys sang "Catch a Falling Star" all throughout the draft, starting with Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb in Round 1 and Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs in Round 2. They got two players at positions of need who could have gone as early as mid-Round 2.

Jerry Jones got Biadasz (6-4, 314 pounds) to continue the fine tradition of Badgers interior blockers that worked so well for him with now-retired center Travis Frederick. Some teams were scared by reports of past knee and hip injuries, which was a big mistake.

Anae (6-3, 257 pounds) is a relentless pass-rusher but his limitations in technique and agility relegated to him to teams with 4-3 base defenses. That works out fine for the new hybrid defense of coordinator Mike Nolan; the team needed a complement to DeMarcus Lawrence to help replace Robert Quinn.

Jets: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia (fifth round, No. 158 overall)

Hall is on track to be fully healthy after season-ending left ankle surgery, but many teams didn't want to take the risk. The Jets were the beneficiaries and landed a 6-2, 202-pound prospect who is made to start on the NFL perimeter. He filled a pressing need for New York. Hall was slated for the first round before the injury.

Buccaneers: Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota (fifth round, no. 161 overall)

The Buccaneers needed another big-bodied target to complement Mike Evans outside when Chris Godwin works the slot in 11 personnel. Johnson isn't the blazer free-agent departure Breshad Perriman was, but he's the type of perimeter receiver who has meshed well with Tom Brady. Johnson (6-1, 206 pounds) is physical and positions his body in ways to impose his will on the end of routes. He fights hard for the ball, giving him looks of a tough possession and red-zone target.

Dolphins: Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State (fifth round, No. 164 overall)

This pick shouldn't be lost in Miami's massive haul that included a ton of defensive help for Brian Flores. Weaver was highly productive in college (13.5 sacks last season) but some teams were concerned he did it against lesser competition and that his moves wouldn't reap the same rewards in the NFL. He is a high-energy pass rusher with untapped upside as he makes the jump. 

 

Browns: Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan (sixth round, No. 187 overall)

The Browns also needed a complementary outside receiver to Odell Beckham Jr. with Jarvis Landry being their main man in the slot. Like Johnson, too many worries about top-end speed probably caused him to slip. Peoples-Jones (6-2, 212 pounds) can be a big possession target with the potential to slide inside, which would allow the Browns to be more versatile with Landry's routes.

Eagles: Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn (sixth round, No. 210 overall)

After trading Halapoulivaati Vaitai to the Lions, the Eagles took a couple of developmental tackles late behind Andre Dillard and Lane Johnson: Wanogho and his bookend at Auburn, Jack Driscoll. You can bet some teams were scared about Wanogho's raw skills, thinking he can't put it all together to be a polished NFL player. That's overlooking his ability to learn quickly, however. Wanogho needs to work hard on his technique and footwork to maximize his natural, fluid athleticism, but he's willing to put it in the time.

49ers: Jauan Jennings, WR, Tennessee (seventh round, No. 217 overall)

The 49ers were excited to land big playmaker Brandon Aiyuk in the first round, but don't sleep on their final pick, yet another wideout unfairly knocked for not having top-end speed. Jennings (6-3, 215 pounds) won't be a game-breaker in the NFL, but he could make the team as reliable big inside target behind Deebo Samuel, Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne

I would have liked to see the jets take one of he late round WRs that dropped.  Great value for some of the guys mentioned in that list.

This years Bless Austin? 

This is what I was thinking. The position is such a huge need for this team, and two years in a row, under two different GMs, the Jets've taken the crumpled up dude with a lot of talent if he heals. 

Hey, it looked better than I expected with Austin last year. I don't think I expected him to even get on the field. A lot of praise for Hall's ability online, so I'm fairly optimistic. I know people hate that Ashtyn Davis pick, but I'm hoping he's useful as a nickel or dime as a rookie. Jets needed help in their secondary.

If you told me pre-draft we’d end up with Bechton, Mims, Zuniga, and Hall without ever trading up...

I’d say:

“put your goggles on. I’m about to nut in your eye.”

Robby is that you?

Whatever, I remember the same being said about Revis when he was drafted. I even remember people, in the media, saying he might be moved to safety.

Revis ran sub 4.4 at the combine. I don't remember anyone questioning his speed.  Still, hall was a great pick and a no brainer so late in the draft.

That’s why we drafted a 4.3 FS. Hall needs only to lock them up within 25 yards. Maye and Davis over the top.

Every single player on this list were top players on mine.  I agree completely with this assessment and believe they were all steals.  My hope is that Hall is the best of the bunch. The good news is that it's actually very possible.  Bryce Hall is the best CB prospect we've had in here since Revis. 

That's right. I said it.  :)
