While Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller have great speed, some of their best work can be in the screen game. With Emanuel Hall there is no doubt about it, he is a deep field burner who can stretch the defense.
Hall averaged over 20 yards per reception getting behind SEC defenders and making plays down the field. The biggest issue with Hall has been his health. He has been on and off of the field, and as of now is looked at as a risky one-trick pony.
However, he went to the combine and raised eyes. He showed that he not only is healthy, but has the potential to add more to his game.
The Bears brought in Hall to see what kind of shape he is in, and what kind of routes he can run to expand his game in the NFL. Hall is a player with first round upside who will fall to round three because of his health. If the Bears trust their evaluations, they may pull the trigger on what they see as value.
