Auburn edge rusher Derick Hall has been getting quite a bit of attention over the offseason, and he got a little more on Tuesday.

Hall was named to PFF’s top-25 college football edge rushers list on Tuesday. He was ranked No. 16 on the list, just below fellow SEC edge rusher Brenton Cox Jr. of Florida. The list clarified that it had nothing to do with pro potential, but simply ranked the players based on how well they believed they’d perform for their college teams in 2022.

The SEC had a great showing on the list, with seven representatives across the conference. Hall himself looks to be one of the anchors for the Tigers’ upcoming defense for the 2022 season and has been projected by many to be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

Last year, Hall had 52 total tackles, 12.5 tackles for a loss and nine sacks in all of Auburn’s 13 games. He’ll look to improve upon that in his senior year to boost his draft stock and to help propel Auburn past their projected win totals for the upcoming season.
