Skipping the first round, The hall did not have to wait long to hear his name called Friday.
The Jets exchanged to choose the Cyclone tailback, and NFL draft analysts admired his approach to the crime and his projected engagement with New York backman Michael Carter.

Of course, they’re going to play football with (Hall). He’s big, strong, physical, (and has) a lot of patience behind the line of scrimmage, a great break and a second-tier finish.”
