SALT LAKE CITY – Former NFL player and current KSL Sports Live analyst Stevenson Sylvester broke down the film of 2023 NFL Draft prospect and former BYU Cougars quarterback Jaren Hall.

Sylvester, who played in the league from 2010-14, discussed Hall’s potential as an NFL player and his fit in the professional game during KSL Sports Live on Sunday, April 2.

“Everyone wants that light, athletic quarterback that’s able to move and keeps his eyes downfield, extends plays,” the former NFL linebacker said of the BYU product. “That’s who Jaren Hall is.”

During his conversation with Sam Farnsworth, Sylvester highlighted multiple traits of Hall’s game including speed, throwing accuracy, and mobility.

“Wherever he goes, receivers are gonna love him,” Sylvester said of Hall. “He’s very athletic. He can escape the pocket and extend the play…on the run he’s able to find the open guy.”

“Jaren Hall does an amazing job of keeping his eyes downfield and delivering the football,” Sylvester added.
