NY Jets’ fifth-round pick Bryce Hall shined at Virginia both on and off the field.

The NY Jets seemingly placed an emphasis on adding high-character leaders in the 2020 NFL Draft and fifth-round pick Bryce Hall is a shining example of that.

A former second-team All-American selection, Hall starred at the University of Virginia earning first-team All-ACC honors in a junior season where he led the FBS in passes defended.

It was his second year as a starter — and just his third playing the position (we’ll get to that) — but Hall was already showing the potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

Unfortunately, his college career was ended prematurely following a devastating ankle injury that wiped out all but six games of his senior season. Hall went from a possible Day 1 selection all the way to the middle of Day 3.

The talent wasn’t a question with Hall, but the medicals were.

He was invited to play in the 2020 Senior Bowl but was forced to hold out due to his injury. The same was true for the NFL Combine as his ankle injury left him watching from the sidelines.

However, Hall showed in college that he has the talent to be a top-flight cornerback in the NFL. That being said, what about Hall’s story off the field?

Bryce Hall has quite an interesting backstory that many Jets fans don’t know about. So with that, let’s take a look at three things you might not have known about the Jets’ fifth-round pick.
