Logan Hall – Defensive Tackle, Houston
With Ndamukong Suh still a free agent, and his future in Tampa Bay very much still up in the air, basically waiting for the coin to land heads or tails at this point, the Bucs’ starting defensive front consists of Vita Vea and William Gholston, then a mystery.
The solution to this Buccaneers’ mystery is Logan Hall.
Hall is a 6’6″, 275-pound beast who is a natural 3-4 defensive end, with the strength to play inside if need be, which the Bucs should need with their nickel and dime looks. Hall should be able to use his pass-rush ability to wreak havoc. Hals should be able to slide right into the starting lineup and learn and grow from a fantastic front seven.
With Jason Pierre-Paul more likely than not coming back to Tampa Bay, Joe Tryon-Shoyinka and Shaq Barrett are the starting pass rushers, with Anthony Nelson penciled in as the “third” guy. With Hall being a natural pass rusher, he should be able to pick up some of the slack.
The best part? The Buccaneers got him in the second round by trading back and got more picks in the process. Plus, they still may bring back Suh, and it’s just an extra mentor for Hall.
