Jaren Hall Rookie Profile King Fantasy Sports

Jaren Hall - QB - BYU

Welcome to the rookie profile for Jaren Hall. Hall sat a few seasons due to injury, and needed time to develop, but in the last two seasons he has really been a consistent player for BYU. When he is healthy, he is a hugely effective option on the ground and through the air. The mark against him will be his age, but he should make a decent mid-round backup QB option for a team in the league

Notable Headlines

Hall was a highly effective QB in high school, and chose to join BYU. He reshirted 2018, before playing in only 4 games in his freshman season, with limited production. 2020 was a skipped season for Hall, as he suffered an injury that put him on the sideline for the season, but he bounced back the next season. 

That 2021 season, finishing with 2,583 yards and 20 TDs through the air, set him up nicely for his 2022 Junior year. Is was in 2021 where he established his ability to rush the ball too, with 62 attempts for 307 yards and 3 scores. That ended up as his most effective season in college, as he threw for over 3,000 yards with 31 TDs through the air, with 86 rush attempts for 350 yards and 3 TDs on the ground.

Scouting Report

Positives

Hall is a well balanced dual-threat QB, who looked comfortable in the position from the moment he took the field. Has a nice arm, able to get the ball out quickly to his receivers, and place the ball nicely for them to make a play on. Able to quickly read the field and put the ball where it needs to go. His arm strength too should allow him to make every NFL-type throw required in a playbook. If a play breaks down, he has the ability to extend it with his legs, or make a play himself on the ground. 

Negatives

His age will put off plenty of teams, as despite being 25, he hasn’t had too much playing experience. He has suffered plenty of injuries during his time in college too, which could led to questions on his durability. He can sometimes sacrifice accuracy on his passes too, as he struggles with his feet.

Pre Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital- Mid Rounds

Landing Spots

Hall would be a nice backup/ spot-starter in an offense that runs the ball, with plenty of RPO plays. A team like the Eagles or Chiefs could use Hall effectively in the place of their starters if required. With his ability on the ground, he is at his best when making plays that have broken down.

Post Draft Analysis

Indianapolis Colts – Round 5, Pick 29

Landing Spot

The Vikings got a decent value in selecting Hall in Round 5. Hall is going to be a clear backup for Kirk Cousins for this season at least. The Vikings offense has talented receivers and backfield that can uplift Hall’s talents, not relying on him too heavily.

Fantasy Impact

A QB drafted this late, with a veteran starter ahead of him doesn’t lend itself to a strong fantasy impact. Outside of Superflex leagues, I wouldn’t consider him. Even in Superflex leagues you have to be prepared to have him on your taxi squad for some time. He could become a spot starter, but equally could flame out like Kellen Mond with the Vikings.
