Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall reportedly has "a lot of late interest."

Small school draft evaluator Josh Buchanan said Hall (6'0/308) "could play end in a 3-4 or tackle in a 4-3 -- for the next seven-plus years." Hall "seem[ed] like a man on a mission [during pro day]" according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline and has visited the Bengals, Ravens, Bucs, Vikings, and Raiders. He will likely be a Day 2 selection.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall is expected to be a day two pick, according to NFL Media's Mike Garafolo.

Hall drew considerable interest after posting an outstanding pro day workout, visiting a handful of teams. Josh Norris recently projected him in the third round to the Atlanta Falcons. Teams will see an upfield disruptive athlete. Those are important.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall is taking an official predraft visit to the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris has been all over prospect visits this spring and twas the case with this Hall trip to Cincinnati. The 6-foot, 308-pounder began his process by doing yeoman's work at the East-West Shrine Game. While the NFL did not invite him to the combine -- snub alert -- he shrugged off the slight to crush his pro day. If the board breaks right for him, Hall could be in play for a Day 2 selection next week.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall is visiting the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris with the tip on this particular visit for Hall. He's also been out on visits to the Raiders and the Colts this week. After starting out the draft process with a strong showing during the East-West Shrine Game practice week, the 6-foot, 308-pounder failed to receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine before ripping it up on his late March pro day with testing marks including a 38-inch vertical jump and a blistering run of 4.68 seconds (with the wind at his back) in the 40-yard dash. The most optimistic projections have Hall vying for a late Day 2 selection in two week's time.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall "seem[ed] like a man on a mission [during pro day]."

Hall (6'0/308) did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine, but perhaps he should have. Not only did he perform well during East-West Shrine Game practices, he turned in pro day testing marks including a 38-inch vertical jump, a hearty 36 reps on the bench press and a 40-yard dash clocked as fast as 4.76 seconds -- against the wind -- and 4.68 seconds (on a second run with the wind). Hall has lined up visits with the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders for April. He's a likely Day 3 selection next month.
Mar 27 - 3:16 PM

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall has visits in April scheduled with the Vikings, Bucs and Raiders.

Hall produced an impressive East-West Shrine week as a disruptive interior defensive lineman. Expect more teams to show interest after a solid pro day. Hall was not invited to the NFL Combine, but a day three selection is absolutely in his future. Interior disruption is king, and some teams will see tremendous value in Hall's game.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Eric Galko of the Sporting News tabbed Hall as one of the most impressive performers at the East-West Shrine Game, but alas, that performance did not parlay into a combine invitation. Hall (6'0/308) consistently wrecked the place during his time with Sam Houston State, recording at least 19 tackles for loss each of his four years in a Bearkats uniform. Beyond that production as a rusher on the line, the likely Day 3 selection also showed an aptitude for blocking kicks during his time in college.

Bleacher Report's Brent Sobleski named Sam Houston State QB Jermiah Briscoe one of his "losers" of the college all-star games after his performance in the Senior Bowl.

Briscoe put up massive numbers at the FCS level, but based on reports from draft analysts who watched him in Mobile, it may not transfer to the NFL level. "The highly productive quarterback struggled to make the transition during practices and the game," Sobleski writes. "His accuracy could be described as erratic at best because he continually sailed passes and didn't have a feel for the routes or his targets." Briscoe will have to be much better over the winter if he stands any chance of being drafted.
Feb 4 - 11:29 AM

Sam Houston QB Jeremiah Briscoe completed 1-of-6 passes for 15 yards in a 14-10 victory over the East in the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday.

Briscoe had one pass dropped, but his completion should have been an interception, but instead miraculously ended up in the hands of South Dakota State receiver Jake Wieneke. Briscoe also reportedly had some issues during practice with accuracy, and this didn't do anything to alleviate those concerns. At this point, it'd be an upset if he was selected in the NFL Draft.
Jan 20 - 6:20 PM

East-West Shrine Game participants on the West team told the Sporting News' Eric Galko that Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall impressed them most during the practice week.

Galko was also hearing good things about Texas DT Poona Ford from players, but it was the 6-foot, 308-pound Hall whose name came up most. The Sam Houston State standout posted at least 19 tackles for loss in each of his four seasons with the Bearkats and profiles as a likely Day 3 selection for the draft, one who has the upside chops to rise during the evaluating process. Off to a good start.

Sam Houston QB Jeremiah Briscoe met with the Jets on Tuesday.

Briscoe (6'3/220) threw for 57 touchdowns as a junior, and led Sam Houston State to the FCS semifinals in 2017. He currently projects as a late round pick, but a strong showing in the East-West Shrine Game and practices could see that draft stock rise.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Briscoe (6'3/225) is coming off one of his worst games with the Bearkats, throwing three interceptions in a semifinal loss to North Dakota State on Saturday. The senior signal-caller has put up ridiculous numbers since transferring from UAB to SHSU, however, throwing for 98 touchdowns in his last two seasons. This will be a great chance for Briscoe to show he can handle quality competition, and could see his late-round or undrafted free agent stock rise to early Day-Three consideration if things go well at the Shrine Game and his pro day.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe completed 29-of-51 passes for 289 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in a 55-13 loss to North Dakota State on Saturday in the FCS playoffs.

Briscoe has some of the best passing numbers in the country -- FCS or FBS -- but really struggled against the powerhouse that is the North Dakota State Bison. This game was over at halftime, with the Bison leading the Bearkats 41-3 after 30 minutes. Even with the poor game, Briscoe still ranks as the top FCS quarterback prospect in the country, and if he tests well, he has a chance to be drafted. This will be a game he'll likely want to forget, however, and won't help his draft stock.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe threw for 504 yards and four touchdowns on 28-of-43 passing in a 54-42 victory over South Dakota on Saturday in the FCS playoffs.

Briscoe (6'3/225) has been one of the most dominant players at the FCS level this year, and is beginning to draw buzz as a potential NFL draft pick. The former UAB quarterback has now thrown for 41 touchdowns, which pales in comparison to the 57 he threw last year, but still, pretty good. He's going to have to pass some tests because of the system the Bearkats play in, but if he does, he could be an under-the-radar prospect to keep an eye on.
Sat, Dec 2, 2017 06:53:00 PM

Sam Houston State senior DL P.J. Hall has accrued 78.5 tackles for loss over his career.

That includes 67.5 TFL from 2014-2016, and 11 this season. Not only that, but Hall is a special-teams demon who's blocked an incredible 12 kicks in his career. ESPN's Mel Kiper believes this FCS tweener may have what it takes to stick around in the NFL, despite his unorthodox frame. "Hall takes on double-teams and is still able to be disruptive," he wrote. "He's a powerful defender. At 6-1, 270 pounds, Hall might be an end in a 3-4 defense at the next level. He's likely a Day 3 pick with upside and versatility, but his stock could rise if he gets an invite to the Senior Bowl and plays well."
