Emanuel Hall Fantasy
Wide receiver Emanuel Hall stood out for the duration of the 2019 NFL scouting combine. He performed really nicely in the 40-yard dash (four.39), the vertical jump (43.five), and the broad jump (141”). He completed 1st in the vertical jump and 1st in the broad jump. Via these drills, he showed terrific traits of explosiveness. This matches his college production exactly where through PlayerProfiler.com he ranked in the 97th percentile in yards/catch (22.four). That mark also ranks second highest in the 2019 draft class.
By way of Pro Football Concentrate Hall (PFF) Hall ranked only behind Darrius Shepard (four.22) from North Dakota State, and Andy Isabella from UMASS (four.15), in yards/route run final year in the NCAA (four.14). Hall’s yards/route run was greater than other speedy 2019 draft prospects that include things like Parris Campbell from Ohio State and Marquise Brown from Oklahoma. Fantasy owners want to get excited about this player who could be the subsequent significant vertical threat.
- Height: six ft two in
- Weight: 201 lbs
- Arms: 33 1/4″
- Age: 22
Hall’s production will usually reference his insane yards/reception. It turns out that at Missouri he essentially holds the record for highest yards/reception of any player there with at least 64 receptions. Nintendo would be proud for all you retro gamers out there. His profession yards/reception was 20.eight. But that is not even my greatest stat nugget.
The most stellar stat nugget I was in a position to compile through College Football Reference was the reality that Hall led the NCAA in games in which he averaged 20 yards/reception or extra. He had 13 total games in college exactly where he accomplished that feat from 2016-2018. He essentially tied wide receiver Jamire Jordan from Fresno State in that category. That was greater than other wide receivers in the 2019 draft class, like Marquise Brown and Hakeem Butler.
In the SEC, Hall led the conference in yards/reception in each 2017/2018 and was second in the NCAA in these exact same seasons. He also ranked prime ten in the SEC in getting yards each seasons and was fifth in getting touchdowns 2017.

Strengths & Weaknesses
If I have not created it very clear what Hall’s strengths are but, it is his potential to get down the field as a vertical speed threat. That is the greatest strength that he possesses. According to PFF, when Hall was targeted deep (20 yards or extra downfield), he compiled the 6th highest QBR (132.two). When quarterback Drew Lock targeted Hall final season at any point, he designed a 141.eight quarterback rating. That was the second highest of any receiver targeted in the 2019 Draft Class behind Gary Jennings Jr. from West Virginia. Outdoors of that even though, Hall is really 1-dimensional.
He is surely not a move-the-chains kind of receiver. Think about the final season he had 37 receptions on 58 targets. 32 of these 37 targets went for 1st downs. All round he ranked 60th in college final season in 1st down receptions. A lot more usually than not Hall profiles to a receiver that will acquire a little market place share in terms of targets but will have boom possible.
A current player comparison to Hall is D.J. Chark from final year’s class. This each from an athletic standpoint and production level. 27 of Chark’s 40 targets in his final collegiate season went for 1st downs. All round in 2017, he ranked 60th in college final season in 1st down receptions just like Hall did in 2018. Nevertheless, Chark’s yards/route run (two.92) was significantly reduce than Hall’s (four.14).
Hall also does not provide significantly upside as an open field runner. He does not produce yardage following generating the reception. He ranked outdoors the prime-60 wide receivers in yards following the catch. He also has really tiny knowledge playing in the slot. He had just two receptions in the slot final season. Nevertheless, he did typical 51.five yards per reception from the slot. It will be fascinating to see if Hall is applied ever in the slot as a vertical threat downfield to split the safeties in coverage. In the clips beneath you can see that Hall is not significantly of a polished route runner. Rounds out his route. Now, 1 could argue that the defensive back is extra concerned about receiving beat-deep so he is playing extra of a soft coverage which is correct. Nevertheless, against greater talent in the NFL, Hall will not be in a position to get away with these sorts of routes.
Very best Match: NFL Scheme
Any group that is lacking a vertical threat would be a fantastic match for Hall. Searching back at final season in terms of yards/completion and yards/pass try for each and every group right here are the teams that had the fewest in that certain category.
- 2018 NFL Teams Lowest In Yards per Completion: Arizona, Jacksonville, Minnesota, Detroit and Washington
- 2018 NFL Teams Lowest In Yards per Try: Arizona, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Washington, and New York Jets.
Out of these teams, Arizona appears like a good match in particular if they finish up drafting Kyler Murray. Unless you are guilty of Kevin White #trutherstatus. Washington has primarily no wide receivers so they will be linked to virtually each single wide receiver in this draft class. And probably not the greatest fantasy football match, but the Minnesota Vikings desperately want to move on from Laquon Treadwell as their quantity 3 wide receiver. It would behoove them to take many wide receivers in this class and I feel Hall’s ability set differs from each Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs generating him the fantastic match there.
Aspects we also are seeking at when thinking about wide receiver prospects getting into the NFL as usually are college dominator rating and breakout age. Hall’s are not necessarily awesome, but they are not negative. 69th percentile college dominator and 56th percentile breakout age through PlayerProfiler.com. The essential with Hall is combining these metrics with his athletism make him an incredibly polarizing prospect to think about in rookie dynasty drafts.
He possibly will by no means come to be a quantity 1 fantasy wide receiver unless he is in a position to attain a ceiling like a Tyreek Hill or DeSean Jackson in their prime. And even with these receivers, they had dynamic quarterbacks to seriously expose their correct upside. Hall possibly will not price also significantly in rookie drafts, but do not be shocked to see him make a splash or two as a rookie. If you play in any greatest ball dynasty leagues or just greatest ball, in common, he is surely a name to think about with his significant-play possible.
