Emanuel Hall shows out in Indy

New, 4 comments

While Drew Lock and Kendall Blanton impressed, Emanuel Hall took things to another level on Saturday

Well, Emanuel Hall sure seems healthy.

After battling injuries throughout the 2018 season — and even afterward, as he had to leave the Senior Bowl — a healthy Hall showed his potential with an impressive afternoon of testing at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine.

Hall jumped 11-feet, 9-inches, which ranks second all-time at the Combine. The record was previously set by Byron Jones in 2015. Jones’ leap — 12’3” — was a world record, as well. It should be noted that Hall’s jump on Saturday would have beat the previous world record (11’7”) as well.

Hall also ran a 4.39 (unofficial) 40 on his second attempt. That ranks third overall (as of Saturday at noon).

If Hall was seen as a potential late-round pick before the Combine, there’s a very real chance he just worked his way into the top half — maybe third round? — with those numbers. Of course, teams are probably going to be examining his on-going groin/hamstring injuries as closely as possible.

But Hall suddenly became one of the top performers in Indianapolis and is going to garner much more attention going forward.

Well-deserved atention.

Notable 2019 Combine Missouri testing results

  • Drew Lock ran a 4.70 40, which ranks fourth among quarterbacks. He’s just behind Mississippi State’s Nick Fitzgerald (4.65) who is also asked to work out as a tight end. Penn State’s Trace McSorely paced the quarterbacks with a 4.58; McSorely is also working out as a defensive back.
  • Kendall Blanton put up 22 reps on the bench press, tied for second-best among the tight ends in Indianapolis. Blanton also ran a 4.95-second 40, which didn’t rank in the top 15 for tight ends.
  • Paul Adams, after putting up low bench-press numbers on Thursday, impressed on Friday.
  • Terry Beckner and Terez Hall wil go through testing and workouts on Sunday.
