Joe Douglas and the New York Jets undoubtedly stole Virginia cornerback Bryce Hall in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL draft.

Gregg Williams was grinning from ear-to-ear on draft day—especially on day three when Joe Douglas and the New York Jets stole Virginia cornerback Bryce Hall in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL draft.

The 6-foot-1 corner is long for his height and smart when looking to fit into every situation. He may just fit in brilliantly with Williams’s zone-coverage scheme at a position the Jets need a kid or two to step up.

Today, Blewett’s Blitz breaks down 37 Bryce Hall plays from a season ago.

Not sure what the coverage is here, as it doesn’t develop, but Bryce Hall (top cornerback) reads the screen to the No. 2 wide receiver very quickly into the rep. He jumps the route but drops the ball. The No. 1 WR gets his hands on Hall which disrupted him, but he needs to make this catch.


Hall (bottom) is playing in man coverage but is in “no man’s land” as he is 2-3 yards off the WR. Hall is patient with his hips, but he isn’t able to stay over top of the stem as he reaches for contact. Hall is able to turn and run with the WR but seemingly trips over the WR’s feet, allowing the TD.

Hall (bottom) is in press man against the WR. Hall does a good job staying patient not hopping back or splitting as the ball is snapped. I would like to see Hall get in a shuffle and get hands-on as the WR gets outside. The WR works vertical, Hall gets his right hand onto the WR tugging the jersey (has to be careful here), tracks the ball and gets the interception.

Hall (top) is in off-man coverage on the WR who runs a curl. Hall opens his hips as the WR closes ground but stays patient as he doesn’t get into full bail (would like to see Hall overtop of the route more). Hall sees the WR breaking back to the ball, throws his T-step and tracks the ball. He gets the pass deflection working through the ball/WR hands.
