Emanuel Hall – Wide Reciever, Missouri

There were a ton of crazy athletes at the wide receiver position on Saturday and Emanuel Hall was among the very best. Hall proved to have rare explosion testing in the 99th percentile for the broad jump and 98th percentile in the vertical jump.

Add that to his 4.39 40-yard dash, and you’ve got an instant deep threat the second he joins an NFL roster.

At Missouri, Hall averaged 20.8 yards per catch and has a little more nuance to his game than it would seem. Defenses will have no choice but to respect his speed, and it will only aid Hall’s fellow receiver underneath. His hands are inconsistent which means he probably can’t be relied on as your number one receiver, but his athleticism is truly rare and at this point, he won’t get beyond the third round.
