Is this DL prospect a perfect fit with Chicago Bears new scheme?
Logan Hall NFL comparison
Thanks to RAS, and MathBomb, we are able to look at some NFL comparisons based on athleticism and playing style. One player who has a similar build, that also has a playing style to match what Logan Hall could bring to the NFL is Malik Jackson.
Check out how the two compare below.

Logan Hall is a bit taller but is a bit more athletic In a couple of areas. Still, had Hall posted a similar broad jump you could say that the two would have an even closer overall score.
Either way, the biggest comparison comes in terms of playing style. Malik Jackson was looked at as a tweener, or even a 3-4 defensive end at times as well. He fell into the fifth round, and it took him a couple of seasons to get on the field. When he did, he blossomed, because he could win with his hands and get into the backfield. He fought on run downs and it was enough to help Denver with a Super Bowl and get him big deals with Jacksonville and Philadelphia.
The NFL looks at fast interior pass rushers in a different lense now, thanks to a player such as Jackson shining in recent years. His success would be what a team should be thinking of when they plan to draft Logan Hall. The type of role in the defense that Jackson played would be where Logan Hall would thrive best.
