Denver Broncos interested in Missouri receiver Emanuel Hall
Due to a groin injury, Hall was not able to flash his full potential at his Pro Day this week, as he did not run routes with quarterback Drew Lock. However, Hall demonstrated outstanding speed with his 4.3 40-yard dash in spite of being hobbled.
Hall is coming off of a senior campaign in which he hauled in 37 receptions for 828 yards and six touchdowns. His breakout year came during his junior season, when he caught 33 passes for 817 yards and eight scores.
Prior to his junior year at Missouri, Hall did not see much of the field, as he had totaled just 27 catches for 371 yards and a pair of touchdowns over each of his first two seasons combined.
Still, due to his ridiculous athletic ability, Hall is a wide out who could end up going fairly high in next month’s NFL Draft.
The Broncos own the 10th overall pick in the first round, and while taking a quarterback seems like the smartest way to go, you never know with Denver, a franchise that has had a lot of difficulty finding a signal-caller since Peyton Manning retired following the team’s Super Bowl-winning 2015-16 campaign.
The Broncos won just six games this past season, marking the first time since 1972 that Denver had posted back-to-back losing campaigns. Denver has now missed the playoffs three years in a row after making five consecutive postseason trips between 2011 and 2015.
