Alex Hall Deserves More Playing Time


Alex Hall was drafted in the 7th round (231 overall) by the Cleveland Browns in 2008. Born on August 17, 1985 in Maryland, Alex is six feet five inches tall and weighs 250 pounds. He played his college football at St. Augustine. He was twice named to the First-Team All-CIAA and twice as a Division II All-American.
In 2008, Hall had 18 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 3 sacks with the Browns. The significant point is that Hall started in just two games last season for the Browns, and he played only about 20% of the snaps in the games that he was active in. With more playing time, Hall has the potential to become one of our better linebackers, and he can contribute to our woeful pass rush. It is impressive that a guy who played so little last season managed to get nearly 20% of the Team's total sack count.
Alex has the size to be a very good linebacker. There is not a single other linebacker on the Team (we have 17 total on the roster including Hall and including the new draftees) who is as tall as Alex. And there are few that have more bulk: Marcus Benard is 256 pounds, David Bowens is 265 pounds, David Holloway is the biggest at 284 pounds, Phillip Hunt is 260 pounds, Kamerion Wimbley is 255 pounds and our new draft pick, David Veikune, is 257 pounds. With his height and long arms and decent body mass, Alex Hall is a real threat to opposing offensive linemen trying to protect their quarterbacks.
We would like to see Hall play more snaps this coming season. We think that he could develop into one of our better pass rushing linebackers.
Go Browns!
