In the preseason, Ohio State DT Michael Hall Jr. was already billed as one of the top prospects at his position in the 2024 NFL Draft. Here’s everything to know about Hall ahead of the big event.

How Tall Is Michael Hall Jr.?

Hall stands at 6’3″. He’s a dense, well-leveraged defender with great proportional length and power capacity.

How Much Does Hall Weigh?

Hall weighs in at 290 pounds. He does lack elite mass, which can affect his take-on strength and balance through contact.

Hall was born June 13, 2003, and is 20 years old. He grew up in Streetsboro, Ohio, and attended Streetsboro High School.

As a junior, Hall made 72 tackles with 17 tackles for loss and five sacks. He was the nation’s No. 54 overall player and was rated as a four-star defensive tackle as a high school senior in 2020.

What School Did Hall Go To?

Hall committed to play college football at Ohio State over offers from Cincinnati, Maryland, and Penn State. He spent his entire college career with the Buckeyes.

Revisiting Hall’s College Career

After three seasons at OSU, Hall declared for the NFL Draft following the 2023 season. He played in 28 games during this time at Ohio State and started 11 times (five times in 2022 and six in 2023).

Hall racked up 45 career tackles with 10 tackles for loss, which totaled 64 yards, and also had six quarterback sacks. In 2021, he redshirted his true freshman season after playing in four games.

In the 2022 season, Hall played in 12 games through some lingering injuries and recorded 19 tackles.

He had a career-best 24 tackles in 2023, was named third-team All-Big Ten, and matched his career high with four tackles against both Notre Dame and Rutgers.

Hall’s impact was felt almost every game, and he has the disruptive traits to be a coveted 2024 NFL Draft prospect.

At Ohio State’s Pro Day, Hall logged a 4.78-second 40-yard dash, a 33″ vertical, and a 9’3″ broad jump — numbers that would place him well above the 90th percentile of athletes at the defensive tackle position.

Hall’s Potential in the NFL

Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings said Hall has the upside to be a plus-starter in the NFL.

“Combine Hall’s explosiveness, lateral freedom, leverage, length, and rotational torque, and you get a defender who’s tailor-made to demolish blocks and disrupt the offensive game plan. At his peak, that’s exactly what Hall is,” Cummings wrote.

“Nevertheless, Hall is still striving for more consistency across operational areas in year three of his collegiate career. His balance can still be an issue at times, and his pass-rush arsenal has room to expand past swims and clubs when stunting.”

Hall’s strengths, according to Cummings, include having agility and freedom of motion to allow for eye-opening bouts of recovery quickness, and having unnatural torque and rotational power for his frame, obliterating opposing balance.

Hall’s weaknesses include sometimes losing his balance when rushing and stunting across gap alignments, and not having the strength to negate snatch-and-trap moves while stunting across-face.
