Overview

Hull was a two-year starter for Penn State, having a breakout season in 2009. Hull has a good frame but lacks great bulk and power as a run defender. He is a high-effort linebacker that will throw his body around but isn't an explosive player. He needs added weight and strength to hold up at the next level. Hull is an average overall athlete that lacks speed, quickness and range in pursuit. He can be effective in zone coverage's but would be a liability in combination man schemes. Hull is an instinctive player that wins with effort, technique, intelligence and toughness but is clearly an overachiever that likely will only contribute as a back up in the NFL.

Analysis

Strengths

Tall with a wide frame that can support more bulk. Prepares well, reads fast and is a solid tackler. Maintains consistent technique. Does a good job of following underneath routes when dropping in zone coverage. Former walk-on that brings it every down until the whistle.

Weaknesses

Lacks bulk and does not have the strength to hold in run support and take on larger offensive lineman. Limited athletically with less than adequate speed, burst and lateral agility. Struggles to stick with tight ends and backs in man coverage. Not an explosive hitter.
