Wide receiver Damieon Dante Hall is presently a free agent who played for teams like Kansas City Chiefs and the St. Louis Rams. After playing his college ball for Texas A&M, the Kansas City Chiefs selected him as the 153rd pick in round five of the 2000 NFL Draft.
While at Texas A&M, he was a running back and return specialist, amassing 4,707 all-purpose yards. In the NFL, he continued his return duties and, instead of being a back, he developed into a wide receiver. Hall is often called by the names of “X-Man”, The Human Torch”, “The Human Joystick” and “The X-factor”.
He played with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2000 through 2006. On April 25, 2007, he was traded to the St. Louis Rams for third- and fifth-round picks in the 2007 draft. He was a Pro Bowler in 2002 and 2003.
In eight seasons and 104 games, Hall has returned 207 punts for 2,168 yards and six touchdowns and 389 kickoffs for 9,373 yards and six more TDs. As a wide receiver, he has appeared in 99 games, making 150 catches for 1,642 yards (10.6 TPC) and nine touchdowns. He has never fumbled the football.
Hall is small at five-foot-eight and 187 pounds. His size limits him as a receiver. He usually lines up in the slot, using his fine quickness to breakout. His acceleration is useful when running short and intermediate routes. He does not have the size or speed to go deep. His stem speed and burst at the top in routes are both fine, allowing him to achieve separation. He has a tough time separating vertically, corners can control him and his routes are often erratic. As a runner, he is tough to get a hold of, using smooth moves, excellent field vision and stop-and-start quickness to elude tacklers. He’s a dynamic open field and seam runner, switching directions to get the most out of his runbacks.
