Pick Analysis: Wall provides the Cowboys with an athletic cover man to provide some special teams help, and can work his way into a backup role as a rookie. Wall has solid ball skills and is adept at reading opposing quarterbacks, but lacks top-end straight-line speed.

Overview

Wall has a good combination of size and strength for a perimeter defender. He can be a physical run-support player, making some powerful hits to set the tone in a game. However, he is susceptible to some misses in the open field and needs to come to balance better when in space. He has good overall athleticism but lacks great pure speed as a perimeter defender. His ball skills are above average. Wall was a productive player with durability throughout his career. He runs well but appears to be somewhat stiff when changing directions. He is a better zone-coverage defender and would be most effective as a rolled-up corner.


Strengths

Wall has a thick, muscular build. Fluid athlete who drops his hips and maintains speed in transition. Reads the quarterback's eyes well and has the ball skills to make plays on underneath routes. Does not shy away from contact and delivers big shots in run support. Very productive in the Big 12.

Weaknesses

Does not have the top-end speed to stick with faster receivers in man coverage. Takes too many false steps and lacks the explosion to close the gap with the receiver when the ball is in the air. Over-aggressive at times and can be exposed by double moves. Despite his size he does not consistently get a good press at the line of scrimmage.

Grade

3.7
