Hall earned scholarship offers not only based on his All-State play at Franklin (Tenn.) Centennial High School, but also his track prowess. He won a state championship in the high jump and also two AAU Junior Olympic Track gold medals in 2011 (pentathlon, high jump). Hall spent two years as a reserve receiver for the Tigers, first catching eight passes for 64 yards (8.0 average) in 11 games in 2015. The following year, his production in 12 games increased (19-307-16.2, two TD). He started 9 of 12 games in 2017, playing through a hamstring injury early in the year. He scored eight times that season, including a SEC-high seven scores in conference games. Hall also ranked second nationally with 24.8 yards per reception (33-817). League coaches named him second-team All-SEC in 2018, though he only played in nine games with seven starts due to a groin injury. His 22.4 yards per reception last fall (37-828, six scores) would have ranked second in the FBS if he had played enough games to qualify.

Overview
One-trick pony at Missouri with impressive turbo boost to rocket past cornerbacks and take the top off of defenses. Hall's transition into the NFL could be slowed by the challenge of physical press corners with good top-end speed, but his athleticism and short-area quickness should allow him to counter as a three-level route-runner with more exposure to an NFL route tree. It could take time, but he has the size and speed to become a low-volume, high-impact WR2/WR3.
Strengths
  • Excellent combination of size and speed
  • Smooth release with instant acceleration into go-routes
  • Long-strider with horsepower to outpace most cornerbacks
  • Posted career average of 20.5 yards per catch
  • Showed improvement in locating deep ball earlier in his route
  • Improved drop rate after poor 2017 showing
  • Tremendously athletic with rare stop-start quickness for his size
  • Sinks hips and stutters feet into sudden stops to uncover and present on comebacks
  • Feet are quick and choppy into breaks for short-area separation
  • Burst and stride to become a playmaking menace on crossers and slants
Weaknesses
  • More sprinter than polished receiver
  • Route inventory lacking with work confined to one quadrant of the field
  • Routes are fast but lack finesse
  • Needs better routes adjustments according to coverage
  • Ball skills are below average with too many career drops
  • Doesn't attack football and allows throws to beat him up
  • Needs to prove he can compete for the ball in traffic
  • Lacked competitiveness against Georgia and Deandre Baker
