Carolina Panthers could target Logan Hall

  • Defensive Line | Houston

It might be worth the Carolina Panthers getting themselves another talented edge rusher after Haason Reddick left in free agency to sign for the Philadelphia Eagles. Brian Burns has stud potential, but there will now be a gaping hole on the opposite side of the front seven if the likes of Yetur Gross-Matos and Marquis Haynes cannot make additional strides.

This does appear to be a pretty deep class of defensive linemen. Many of whom were taken extremely high in the draft and later on in the first round.

There is still plenty of meat on the bone. Something the Panthers might be willing to trade up for depending on the right prospect being available.

Timing is also very important. However, it’s hard to look at Logan Hall’s attributes and not think he’d be a tremendous fit in Carolina.

Hall enjoyed a breakout campaign for Houston in 2021, recording six sacks and 13 tackles for loss to propel the defensive lineman up draft boards across the country. He has borderline elite explosiveness and consistent speed that allows the prospect to close space incredibly quickly.

His versatility allows Hall to play anywhere on the defensive line. Although his physique would suggest he’s better suited to an NFL edge.
