3. Jaren Hall, BYU
"Quarterback Jaren Hall had an outstanding throwing session today. He threw more than 50 passes, and many of them had a high degree of difficulty. Hall wasn’t just accurate — he displayed pinpoint pass placement and drove deep passes downfield with speed. The criticism from scouts after the Combine centered on Hall’s footwork dropping into the pockets from center and setting himself to throw."
Hall started 22 games at BYU over the last two seasons, with a touchdown-to-interception ratio a shade over 4:1 (51 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions) over that span. He gets overall props from draft analysts for his poise, polish, accuracy and mobility, and he adds something with his legs.
The easy knocks on Hall are his size (6-foot, 207 pounds at the NFL Combine), and his age (25). Pauline mentioned that his age is not a big concern for NFL teams, since more quarterbacks are often playing (and playing well) into their 30s. He apparently comes across great in interviews and is a “mature 25-year old married man.”
Hall is a likely Day 3 pick, perhaps early Day 3 (fourth round). His steady play at BYU might appeal to the Lions.
