NFL PLAYOFF Predictions (As of week 14)

Note from the editor,

Samuel, our graphics guy, here at DFS Cheat Sheet loves the NFL playoffs. In turn he’s going to be writing a series of playoff predictor articles each week leading up to the actual NFL playoffs! Thank you Samuel. Enjoy! – Chris Robin

One week closer! Surprisingly, nothing has changed for my outlook on the AFC. The Chiefs are still making strides across the league at every turn and should not be underestimated despite the (once perfect) record from ANY team. The NFC however is an ever-changing gauntlet of teams ready to put someone on notice on any given Sunday. With that being said… here are my thoughts on a few of the biggest matchups of Week 14, and some fantasy player value changes moving into the 2nd round of Fantasy playoffs… Tell me what you think! Who would you like to see? Could you see this Super bowl happen?

The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs will be looking to assert their AFC dominance once again.

↗ Fantasy Value up
− Fantasy Value the same
↘ Fantasy Value down

Houston Texans: 7 v Chicago Bears: 36

Any remaining glimmer of hope that the Texans would make it out of this season with their dignity left was finally crushed. How easy did Bill O’Brien really get off by just getting fired? It’s embarrassing. This team’s defense is embarrassing. Aside from Zach Cunningham, I’d be scared to stream anyone from it. The Offense does not look too promising anymore either. In addition to the non-existent run game, the receiving corps is on its last legs too with the recent loss of Kenny Stills and Will Fuller. Watson made it clear post game that he intends to start the last 3 games of the season, and his top 10 performances should remain consistent. Fantasy owners should expect him to put more of the game on his shoulders as he has many times before. But be weary of inexperienced receivers still establishing chemistry this late in the season. Now is no time to get cute with the lineups… You have better options.

The Chicago bears however have rejoiced with their first win in months after falling from 5-1 to 5-7 prior to this game. Now sitting at 6-7 the always-confused-QB-room is still in the fight for a wild card playoff berth. Do they get it? No, if you ask me. But that won’t stop Trubisky from being as dialed in as we’ve ever seen as he fights for a contract, and his first shot at the post season. His fantasy value, as well as David Montgomery’s especially will continue to rise as they have some favorable matchups on tap, especially for the run game.

Pittsburg Steelers: 15 vs Buffalo Bills: 26

Was this the last time Juju dances on an opposing field logo? I sure hope so. Mike Tomlin and co finally have their game script cracked for the 2nd time, maybe this time it’ll be enough to change things up. Obviously, you can’t keep making Big Ben throw 50 times a game. But given their matchups on tap, and the production from James Connor, they probably will. Speaking of which…is James Connor even in the NFL still? The last game he got more than 50 yards was week 11 against a bottom 5 Defense, and before that it was week 7. No TD’s since week 8. Hasn’t been targeted as much for passes recently. And I get it… He has been some nursing some stuff, but he is back finally, and next week’s favorable matchup for Connor does not make me feel any more confident in starting him. Meanwhile, the committee of wideouts is sure to continue seeing their fair spread of targets as Ben fights for his chance at another title before he hangs it up.

Buffalo’s story is not much different. They are one of the best teams in the league that everyone is sleeping on. Their record came to them in a different order than the steelers, but realistically they’re almost the same team. They are also not really running the ball that much right now. When they do, it is a committee operation. Neither can be trusted. Josh Allen looks fantastic, mobile, strong. He’s a top 5 QB right now. Stefon Diggs looks fantastic. He’s a top 5 WR right now. Cole Beasley even… in the top 25. I mean….Sean McDermott and his defensive knowledge and weapons on offense really should be raising eyebrows at this point. This is a Superbowl Contending team. All their starters are doing great. They have some tougher matchups up next that will be the real test of their will. Go with your gut. Start your studs. Bills are getting it done.

Baltimore Ravens: 47 v Clevland Browns: 42

Call it a down day for the Browns. Call it a rebound game for the Ravens. Whatever. Ravens got a lot of work to do if they want to make the post season still. And the browns once again reminded us that they’re not the browns they used to be. Ravens star RB Lamar Jackson once again lit up the back field reinforcing once again that he is not a good passer. 11 out of only 17 pass attempts were caught, but he had 2 Rushing TD’s and 124 rush yards. More than JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards combined. So… in terms of fantasy, if run game matchup looks good and Ravens O-line continues to collapse, Lamar should be good. On the flip side however, this game script renders almost every other skills player on the team irrelevant and extraordinarily boom or bust depending on TD’s. Even the likes of Mark Andrews have seen the lowest of the lows. Be careful streaming anyone but Lamar.

As for the browns, Baker Mayfield commanded another awe-inspiring performance late in the game. Throwing for 343 yards, 3 Total touchdowns, 28/47 attempts. One of only 3 games on the season with 35 or more attempts though. Granted the Baltimore pass defense isn’t all that great. They also let up 213 total yards to Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt combined, both of whom scored too. The loss of OBJ has not slowed down Baker, or the offensive powerhouse mind of Stefanski at all. And so long as Baker keeps passing TD’s, everyone should fare relatively well moving forward. He now has 3 straight games with at least 2 passing TD’s and 250 or more pass yards in each. In 12-man leagues especially, baker should be worth considering for streaming. The only 2 folks I’d be weary about are Hunt and Hooper. Hunt is back to inconsistency, just like last year behind Chubb. We expected that, and he’s only ever been a confident start against poor defenses. As for Hooper…Baker just isn’t a TE targeting man. Any Cleveland TE should be an absolute last resort.

Too Early 2021 NFL Draft

Too Early 2021 NFL Draft
11/20/20
Ben Anderson https://twitter.com/bennieboy26

Over the last few months I’ve learned several things about social media. First and foremost it’s toxic! Second, people really like to look ahead. Third, crazier the comment then higher the likes.

In the spirit of social media toxicity what better way to join the party then with an early 2021 mock draft!

Ben is one of our resident college football fans and writers. He loves NFL mock drafts so who am I to stop him?

ROUND ONE

2020 NFL Draft Narrative

2020 NFL Draft Narratives
4/25/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Where do we start? It’s been a fantastic few days filled with real life NFL talk along with fantasy football talk. Where do we draw the line? Is it skewed? Does it even matter? One has to do with the other right?

I’m not here to bring bad news. I’m also not here to put others down. I do however, think we need to hold our horses. It’s been a rough and wild few months so I fully understand the excitement.

Kansas City RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

After round one had finished social media was on fire! Rightfully so! The number one comment was Clyde Edwards-Helaire. When Kansas City drafted him 32nd overall it sent a fantasy shock wave across the land. Thursday night into Friday morning Clyde had surpassed Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa as the 1.01 choice in rookie drafts. Even in super-flex formats. Who am I to judge others? Put people down for their opinions. You won’t get far in life acting that way. My brain was processing so many thoughts and feelings. So I wanted to express it the best way I know, writing!

Detroit Lions RB D’Andre Swift

Now everyone turned their attention to the second round. The Detroit Lions selected GA running back D’Andre Swift. In turn, everyone is burying Kerryon Johnson. We’re seeing how fast the market and ADP can shift after a few outlandish opinions on social media. I’m well aware of Kerryon and his inability to stay on the field his first two season. Well they did draft Swift to sit on the bench! Of course not but how can any of us truly say he’s done? He’s washed up? We have absolutely no idea how it’s going to shake out.

With each draft selection the landscape changes. With each offensive player drafted everyone is scrambling to rank and update projections. That’s the good and the bad of social media. Everyone is able to express their opinion. There are hundreds actually thousands of fantasy football pages on Twitter. It’s filled pod-casters, rankers, projections and quite frankly, awful advice. It’s a rat race where everyone wants their content heard.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathon Taylor

Is Marlon Mack really dead? The Indianapolis Colts drafted Jonathon Taylor 41st overall. Marlon Mack’s outlook seems grim. That’s literally all we know. The Colts drafted a RB. We’re all rushing to judgment.

Lets check in on Devin Singletary and the Buffalo Bills. Devin is a 22 year old kid who started 8 games in 2019. He finished the season with 969 all purpose yards and 4 total touchdowns. Buffalo drafted Zack Moss 86th overall in the third round. So Devin is done right? He’s finished? If you believed all the opinions on social media then you’d think that.

Buffalo Bills RB Zack Moss

Green Bay is having an interesting draft to say the least. In the second round 62nd overall they selected Boston College RB A.J. Dillon. So instantly Aaron Jones is no longer viable as a professional running back? Jones had an absolutely phenomenal 2019 season. 1,558 all purpose yards and 19 total TD’s. Those are without a doubt RB1 numbers. So you mean to tell me that’s it? Once again, an awful opinion burying a stud RB. If anything it hurts Jamal Williams. Do we even know? I’ll tell you, we don’t. Again, we know nothing.

Green Bay Packers RB A.J. Dillon

It’s funny how we only fixate on what benefits us most in the short term. Dallas drafted CeeDee Lamb 17th overall and the only thing I’ve heard is, “oh my gosh this is great for Cooper and Gallup!” May I ask why? What makes drafting a wide receiver in the first round so fantastic to the teams other WR’s compared to burying a RB1after a second running back was selected? It’s for selfish purposes. “Dak has so many weapons now!” Or, “everyone in Dallas is going to eat!” We only mention and speak on situations that benefit us the most.

In Detroit no one is talking about Kerryon being done and over. No one in Buffalo has said Singletary is now trash. It’s all a personal perspective. Only issue is the fact it’s polluting social media and watering down the entire conversation. Everyone in Green Bay is excited with the addition of A.J. Dillon.

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb

Most of these opinions are quite negligent. They hold little to no water. We know absolutely nothing. Kids from college were drafted to play professional football. That’s it! Nothing more nothing less. How many times in the past have we seen draft choices fizzle out? Not do a thing. We are a lifetime away from the actual start of the NFL season. Before you hit send double check, is this truly how I feel? Or is this a rash decision based on another comment? Do I firmly believe Kerryon and Singletary are done as RB’s in the NFL? Or is this just massively early speculative thought?

Let’s take it easy! Enjoy what’s going on around us. I love being a strategist and thinking what depth charts will look like come August. Those two thoughts are not the same. We need to cool down and let it play out. Fantasy sports fans all want to have the hottest take. Everyone wants to be the first who said it. This player is the biggest winner, he’s the biggest loser. Based on what? I’ve said it a few times here but we still truly have no idea how it’s going to shake out. Take a moment and think. What are you really saying?

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Is any one sick of the 2020 Draft content? How about the 2020 fantasy football season? Are we running it into the ground? By the looks of it, I’m going to say no! My Twitter feed and other social media outlets are absolutely loaded with fantasy football and NFL Draft questions.

It’s pretty easy to figure out why. Most of us are stuck at home with nothing but our phones and streaming services. It’s never a bad thing to be prepared. It’s never a bad thing to go over every option possible for the actual NFL Draft.

If you missed the wide receiver ADP article check it out here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/fun-with-wide-receiver-adp/nfl/04/

Within reason! There is still a lot of time left before the start of the 2020 NFL season. Burning out is a real thing! For most of us, fantasy football will never get old. I’m not talking about you. I’m talking to the first time fantasy football player. Or a young kid looking to take on his first ever dynasty team. Have you ever heard, “Rome wasn’t built in one day?”

All the experience we’ve accumulated over the years has taken time. A lot of blood, sweat and tears. Plus, the entire point of this is fun! Enjoying yourself and relaxing! Fantasy football! Your own little oasis, build your own fantasy!

I had a fun idea about comparing all my mock draft notes and making a list of each positional player and their ADP. Below is a chart I made after I ran 100 mocks through a simulator. I logged all the top 20 players at each offensive position. This is the chart for tight ends!

As you can see I left of the highest and lowest portion of the TE ADP. It’s changing every minute. It’s clear to see where each is being drafted.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle

Aside from the top 2, Kittle and Kelce, it’s best to wait. Kittle and Kelce are in a tier of their own. There is also a massive drop off after the top 5. Personally I would put Waller at #5 and let Hooper slide.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

As you can see I listed the top 25 WR at this moment in time. We could argue 11-20 but why? All these guys are capable and will continue to hold value.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

Personally, I’m not a fan of Cooks at #25. When you dig in to his production you’ll see he’s no slouch. Just a head injury risk.

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks

Odell Beckham Jr. did not make the top 25 WR. So that tells you how little faith the fantasy football community has in his right now.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Tyler Boyd has taken a huge leap with an overall ADP of #18. That could be due to the upcoming draft and Cincinnati drafting Burrow #1 overall. I get the thought process but I fully expect his ADP to right itself and Boyd falling back into the ADP 30’s.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton

I’m not a fan of T.Y. Hilton at his ADP of WR16. I’ve discussed him in length in Fantasy Hell and the Sell! Sell! Sell! article.

Sad to say but there is no fun to be had with the wide receiver ADP! The top 10 guys are legit! As we continue towards the fantasy football season these will move and we will be able to see more trends. This is just the start of it all! Expect updated ADP content along the way.

Fun With Quarterback ADP

Fun With QB ADP Rankings
4/21/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Is any one sick of the 2020 Draft content? How about the 2020 fantasy football season? Are we running it into the ground? By the looks of it, I’m going to say no! My Twitter feed and other social media outlets are absolutely loaded with fantasy football and NFL Draft questions.

It’s pretty easy to figure out why. Most of us are stuck at home with nothing but our phones and streaming services. It’s never a bad thing to be prepared. It’s never a bad thing to go over every option possible for the actual NFL Draft.

If you missed the running-back ADP article here it is! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/fun-with-running-back-adp/nfl/04/

Within reason! There is still a lot of time left before the start of the 2020 NFL season. Burning out is a real thing! For most of us, fantasy football will never get old. I’m not talking about you. I’m talking to the first time fantasy football player. Or a young kid looking to take on his first ever dynasty team. Have you ever heard, “Rome wasn’t built in one day?”

All the experience we’ve accumulated over the years has taken time. A lot of blood, sweat and tears. Plus, the entire point of this is fun! Enjoying yourself and relaxing! Fantasy football! Your own little oasis, build your own fantasy!

I had a fun idea about comparing all my mock draft notes and making a list of each positional player and their ADP. Below is a chart I made after I ran 100 mocks through a simulator. I logged all the top 20 players at each offensive position. This is the chart for quarterbacks!

Ben RoethlisbergerQBPittsburgh150.77.0115.12
Drew LockQBDenver151.47.0715.12

As you can see there are five different QB’s under consideration in the first round. Lamar and Pat Mahomes aren’t that shocking. We could even argue Russell Wilson in the first round depending on the format. It’s very questionable that Matt Ryan at 1.02 and Josh Allen at 1.12.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

For the most part these QB’s are in the exact spot they should be.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz

Finally the real life numbers on Carson Wentz have been made clear! If you remember correctly both him and Baker Mayfield were sitting in the top 10 QB’s of fantasy drafts last season. Fast forward a year and Wentz (79.3) and Baker (105.3) have lost value and their respective ADP’s show that.

All the way down the list, Tom Brady, sits at QB #19 yet his highest ranked ADP is 3.10. If you look through the list above it sticks out like a sore thumb. The reason for those numbers has to be shaky owners reaching.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady

Slide over to the highest ADP column and glance at Dak Prescott (2.12) and Kyler Murray (2.12). As you can see Dak’s ADP is at 71.5 while Kyler’s ADP is at 58.5 yet are absolutely even in the highest ranked ADP. With an ADP difference of 13 picks owners are still looking to draft both end of the 2nd round.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

The hype around Denver QB Drew Lock has all but been extinguished in these 100 mocks. As his ADP is around 150 overall. Just another clear cut example of others reaching.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock

If I’ve learned anything from the 100 mocks in terms of quarterback ADP it’s how easy a group of people can sway opinions causing a rise in ADP. It’s just a cause and effect we have to pay attention to before out actual real life drafts.

It’s a lot to take in right? In terms of the Top 20 running backs, that’s all standard stuff. When you start looking at the ADP and comparing certain RB’s to highest and lowest you can see the trends that are happening in fantasy mock drafts!

The top 10 ranking running backs headed into the season all have first overall potential.

New York Jets RB Le’Veon Bell

Do you find it shocking to see to see that the mid-tier guys like Bell, Singletary, Kerryon and James Connor highest ADP is mid-second round? I don’t, those RB’s have seen a drop in value recently.

Buffalo RB Devin Singletary

The tail end of the Top 20 includes Ekler, Ingram and David Montgomery. The lowest average position they fall to are all the way into the 6th round. Which is absurd right? Not as crazy as you’d think!

Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler

I published these results so we could talk about them. They don’t do me any good tucked away in a notebook. It’s just a good piece of information to have and use when making a draft plan of your own! Just keep in mind there are a lot of young and talented rookies being drafted and mixed in with these mocks. Hence the reason for certain players dropping and not keeping their normal ADP value. Hope it helps!

2020 Deep Dive Rookie DB’s

2020 Deep Dive DB’s
4/20/20
David Reed https://twitter.com/Nfldraft_dwr

This years draft class at corner is a fun one to scout. After the top two corners, you can make a case for three or four different prospects that could be corner #3. Below are my personal top 10 prospects in this years draft.

If you missed any of Davids 2020 Deep Dive’s start with this one! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-deep-dive-rookie-lbs/nfl/04/

Jeffery Okudah – Ohio State 6-1 200

Ohio State DB Jeff Okudah

Pros:
– Great at man coverage
– Quick feet and good hips
– Overall great athlete
– Plus body control
– Aggressive against routes
– Recovery speed
– Willing tackler

Cons:
– Use his hands more in press
– Can still drag tackle than wrap up and drive
– Still room to learn and grow in zone coverage

Overall:
Okudah is the best corner in this class. He can be placed 1 on 1 with WR’s and will more than likely win. He is good at zone but can learn to develop a bit more there but you are still fine with him out there in a zone scheme.

C.J. Henderson – Florida 6-1 202

Florida DB C.J. Henderson

Pros:
– Great athlete
– Recovery speed
– Patients in man coverage, stays squared to the WR
– Plays the ball well in the air
– Effective blitzer
– Trust his technique
– Good in zone coverage
– Smooth hips and awareness
– Was used to match other teams top WR all game

Cons:
– Reluctant tackler in the run game
– Intentionally taken wider angles to avoid contact
– Has pulled up on plays to not make a hit
– Learn to get of blocks a bit more

Overall:
Henderson is now rising from a mid first to maybe a top 10 pick. His coverage skills are amazing. With his size, speed and ability to play man and zone. His main knock is not wanting to tackle in the run game. He needs to toughen up in terms of helping there but a team could be getting a future lock done CB here.

Jeffery Gladney – TCU 6-0 183

TCU DB Jeffrey Gladney

Pros:
– Quick footwork
– Change of direction is fast and fluid
– Smooth hips
– Sudden response and great body control
– Explosive plant and drive ability (closing speed)
– Recovery speed
– Can work outside and slot
– Competitive player and tackler
– Calm with ball in the air. Finds it and reacts/adjusts

Cons :
– Route anticipation in zone can improve
– Stronger on Jams at the line
– Though measured at 6 foot, seems he is missing that size to stop a catch at times

Overall:
– Gladney is a mid to late first round corner that a team will be happy to snag. He has quick feet and ability to play man and zone. Outside and in the slot. He is competitive and tough as a player who need to become a bit stronger but has the making to be a teams #1 CB!

Kristian Fulton – LSU 6-0 200

LSU DB Kristian Fulton

Pros:
– Man coverage skills
– Patients and balance in coverage
– Leverage and Manipulates routes
– Competitive and attacks the ball
– Never seems panicked
– Can play both man and zone
– Clean footwork

Cons:
– Improve as a run defender
– Ankle tackler
– Play off contact better
– Missed 2017 due to tampering a NCAA drug test
– Bad in national champ game

Overall:
Once a top recruit out of high-school and now on of the top corners in the 2020 draft. Fulton has a natural feel on the field. He has the ability to play man and zone and his ability to stay calm against passes is a plus. He needs to improve as a tackler but can be a solid corner for a teams future.

Trevon Diggs – Alabama 6-2 207

Alabama DB Trevor Diggs

Pros:
– Great in zone coverage
– Shows ability to play man and crowd routes
– Decent pop to jam WAS at the line
– Patient footwork
– Stays calm
– Fluid athlete for size and length at corner

Cons:
– Tackling
– Still learning position (former WR)
– Ball skills with his back to the ball arnt great
– Needs to get head around and locate the ball better
– Can try to get over aggressive on jams and get beat at the line

Overall:
Diggs shows a lot of promise at Corner but still raw. He offers great length and athletic ability for the position. He’s best at zone now but shows ability to develop into a solid man coverage player. He’s a fringe 1st with great upside.

A.J. Terrell – Clemson 6-1 190

Clemson DB A.J. Terrell

Pros:
– Good athlete
– Pattern matching skills
– Quick feet
– Tight coverage
– Balance patients and hand usage in press
– Challenges the point of catch
– Good eyes to read back field
– Great range and arm length

Cons:
– Average tackler (needs more power and better form)
– Can be a bit handsy down the field that could turn to penalties at the next level
– Baited a lot of QBs in college. Could hurt him in pros

Overall:
Terrell is a long corner with good ability in man coverage. He will need to beef up a little and work on his tackling form but has the ability to be a great lock down corner.

Jaylon Johnson – Utah 6-0 190

Utah DB Jaylon Johnson

Pros:
– Long athletic frame
– Loves being a physical presents at corner
– Good jamming ability
– Crowds the routes
– Won’t be bullied at the top of the routes
– Patients and good foot work
– Always attacks the ball
– Shows good ball skills

Cons:
– Can get grabby down field
– Long speed
– Reading the backfield
– Can give to much cushion and gives up some un needed yards in screens
– Tackling form is sloppy and hesitant

Overall:
Long frame that loves to play man coverage and bully the WR’s. He has the skills to lock down WR’s early but could struggle against a speed technician style WR if he gets beaten early. He will need to improve as a tackler and reading the backfield more.

Noah Igbinoghene – Auburn 5-11 200

Auburn DB Noah Igbinoghenee

Pros:
– Great closing speed
– Works back to the ball
– Scrappy in press coverage
– Shows good balance, hand placement and body control to crowed at the line
– Good functional strength
– Plays through contact
– Works through blocks and willing tackler in run game
– Kick return ability (27.3 Yard per Kick Return)

Cons:
– Only a 2 year at the position (still learning the ins and outs)
– Processing and still calculating his decisions. Needs to feel more natural
– Track the ball better while defending
– Hands are average for a converted WR
– Tackle consistency (though willingness and doesn’t shy away)

Overall:
What Noah has done in 2 years with a new position is outstanding against strong SEC competition. He is now considered a late 1st. More than likely mid 2nd round prospect at the position. Most of his negatives are more learning and growing pains. I think a team with a good DB coach Noah can accelerate his development and get a stud corner.

Damon Arnette – Ohio State 6-0 195

Ohio St. DB Damon Arnette

Pros:
– Strong press cover corner
– Crowded and redirects the routes
– Balance and patients in his back pedal
– Anticipates breaks in routes
– Good hips and closing speed
– Can play zone
– Can play outside or slot

Cons:
– Shows flashes but limited production making plays on the balls (INTs)
– Willing tackler for the most part but lacks ability to shed blocks
– Collapse quicker in off coverage zone
– Late bloomer

Overall:
Arnette was a late bloomer playing his best ball this past year and was outstanding. He has generated some first round buzz and would not be shocked if selected in the first. I feel his grade is more Day 2 with upside to be a stud with his ability to play in mutilate schemes.

Bryce Hall – Virginia 6-1 200

Virginia CB Bryce Hall

Pros:
– Good size and length for position
– Strong in press using his length
– Plays the zone
– Closing speed
– Makes plays on the ball
– Takes angles
– Wins 50/50 balls

Cons:
– Lost a season due to broken ankle
– Delayed acceleration when he has to turn and go
– Struggles to stay with a receiver on complex routes
– Sure up the hands
– Inconsistent against run blocks and shedding them
– Improve tackling form

Overall:
Hall is a good corner who can play zone and man. His size and length is what teams want in terms of crowding the WR. He attacks the ball well and can really excel in a zone scheme. He will lose some in man coverage if beaten. Lacking long speed. He’s a mid round corner with high upside.
