2022 NFL DRAFT: BREECE HALL

By John Mesenbrink

IOWA STATE (JR), RB

Arguably the most explosive back in this year’s NFL Draft, wherever Breece Hall went, so went the Iowa State Cyclones offense. He has the great blend of size and power (6'1”/220) to be an every down back at the next level. Last year’s Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, Hall rushed for 1,472 yards on 255 totes with 20 TDs (behind a mediocre O-line). He padded his rushing stats with 36 catches for 302 yards and 3 TDs over 12 starts. Hall’s Cyclone career saw him rush for nearly 4,000 yards and 50 TDs which set an FBS scoring record with a rushing touchdown in 24 concecutive games. Hall projects to be selected in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft but we wouldn't be shocked to see him sneak into the backend of the first.

Pluses:
• Excellent yards after contact
• Size and strength
• Projected every down back
• Patient runner

Concerns:
• College workload (800 touches over three seasons)
• Runs high due to his frame
• Pass protection improvement
