Jordan Hall, RB/KR/PR, Ohio State

UDFA. Signed by the Steelers as UDFA in June but released in August. He probably doesn’t do anything well enough to be consistently successful in the NFL, and his injury history is a definite red flag.

Positives: Experienced as both a receiver and runner. Was often used as a wide receiver in college. Runs with adequate speed, burst, and cutback vision. Though not strong, he keeps his legs churning through contact for extra yards. Finishes runs strong on the sidelines and doesn’t just give up. Above-average hands and adjusts fairly well to errant passes.

Negatives: Below-average height and bulk for the position. Runs a little upright at times. Not much of a leaper on the goal line. Tore his foot tendon in July 2012 and had surgery, missing the first two games of the season. Then he tore his right knee PCL in late September 2012 and missed the rest of season. According to his coach, he has a chronic knee problem.

Projection: If he stays healthy and makes an NFL roster, I can see him being a part-time contributor as a return specialist. No need to draft him in fantasy, though.
