For the Jets last season, Bryce Hall started each game and outperformed expectations. However, the Jets went out and added two cornerbacks this offseason, moving Hall down the depth chart. After signing free agent D.J. Reed, they selected Sauce Gardner with the fourth overall pick.
These actions virtually guarantee that Hall will begin the season on the sidelines. But Hall continues to be upbeat.
Even though Gardner, who was selected first overall in the draft, will eventually take over as the starting quarterback for the Jets, the team has not yet given him the job outright.
As evidence that the coaches still have high regard for the Virginia third-year player, Hall and Gardner have been splitting first-team reps during training camp.
Is Bryce Hall a good cornerback?
In 2021, Bryce Hall had a decent season. He did not allow many big plays to be scored on, but he did not create any, either. Hall’s inability to consistently touch the ball was a major criticism of his play. Although he had 16 pass deflections, he did not have any interceptions.
According to PFF, he is the 56th-best cornerback out of 116 total players. He let in six touchdown passes and had seven penalties for a 101.5 passer rating.
