In today’s NFL, a team can never have enough defensive backs.
The 2021 NFL features a talent-rich cornerback prospect pool.
One of these prospects is Darren Hall out of San Diego State.
According to Justin Melo, the LA Rams have met with Hall and he could be a target for them in the draft.

Hall spent 4 years at San Diego State that included him redshirting in 2017.
He was a starter in his final 2 years and played in more than 30 games.
At 6 foot 190 pounds, he had 134 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 6 interceptions, 1.5 sacks, 31 passes defended, and 3 forced fumbles.
He is known to have good ball skills with great size.
Pro Football Focus named him First-Team All-Mountain as the best cornerback in the conference.
“Hall emerged as one of the top zone coverage corners in the conference last season, and this year he went from one of the best to the best,” PFF’s Anthony Treash wrote on Hall. “No MWC cornerback earned a higher zone coverage grade than Hall, who also cracked the top 15 in the FBS in that metric.”
Hall also had a great Senior Bowl and opened many eyes.

“Darren Hall is going to make the impact that he’s destined to make,” Hall told The Draft Network when asked to offer a self-evaluation. “I’m gonna come in and work my butt off. I’m gonna make sure that I’m doing all of the things that allow me to play at a high level. I can play on special teams. I can play multiple roles in the secondary. Every play that comes my way is going to get my full effort. I’m gonna give it my all every single day.”
