The Cyclones’ offensive leader for the past three seasons, Breece Hall has established himself as one of the most complete and productive runners in the country. A veritable yard machine, he has racked up no less than 3,000 yards on the ground over the past two years and scored and scored a whopping 41 touchdowns. An exceptional productivity that earned him many votes in the Heishman trophy ranking for the best university player. It must be said that in addition to being devilishly effective on the ground, Hall is also skilled with his hands. Capable of capturing a lot of balls and being a real alternative out of the backfield, he displays a complete profile which should please the upper echelon.
The running back draws his success from his propensity to break tackles. Since his arrival on the Iowa State campus, he is quite simply the player who has broken the most tackles in the 1st university division with 194 units. When he starts, Hall also knows how to be patient behind his line, using his good reading of the gaps to make the most of the work of his blockers.
– Early wear?
With more than 800 balls during his 3 seasons with the Cyclones, Hall has been busy. A workload that could have started its durability on the pitch at only 20 years old. He is the runner who has touched leather the most in the last two exercises. If the for the time being, it has only known minor glitches, the scouts have to take note of this overuse.
Despite his production, Hall suffers from a physical deficit in particular a lack of power. Faced with NFL adversity and the physical phenomena he will encounter, he could suffer from this deficit.
Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
If his lack of power can cast doubt on his ability to take on the role of number one, Breece Hall has the ideal profile to join a committee. His productive and complete profile could complete a squad lacking in efficiency. In a Bills attack where only the running game can sometimes stay behind. The Dolphins’ running offense is among the least prolific in the league. Despite some additions during free agency, Hall could provide a boost and help relieve Tua Tagovailoa.
