I read this at PFW's "The Way We Hear It" and thought it sounded a little more than just interesting. First the Fitz comparison is eye opening when talking about Jenkin's skill sets. Secondly, it reinforces what we've been hearing from Vick and about Vick and that is he's clearly lost as the QB of the Falcons. Whiule Hall isn't pointing his comments at Vick I think it's easy to understand where he's coming from. After all, he covers Jenkins in practice all the time. He knows if Jenkins is running the right route or if Vick is making the throws. He also covers other guys and can make a fair comparison.
Falcons’ Hall expects WR Jenkins to break through in 2006
Pro Bowl CB DeAngelo Hall just can’t get enough football, and that’s why we saw him strolling around the halls of the Indiana Convention Center during the Scouting Combine. Hall said he was just hanging out and not there in an official capacity, though he was granted access to watch workouts behind the curtains in the RCA Dome. “If there’s anything to do with football, I’m there,” Hall told PFW. “Whether it’s scouting somebody or giving my own personal opinion on the guy. It’s just fun for me to get out there and watch guys run, lift, compete. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about. It’s not about how fast you run or how good you catch the ball. It’s about who can come out here and compete day-in and day-out, no matter what situation they put you in.” While Hall was reluctant to give his scouting report on any of the players at the Combine, he did evaluate teammate WR Michael Jenkins, whom the Falcons selected in the first round of the 2004 draft: “I think he’s no different than Larry Fitzgerald, who caught 103 balls (in 2005),” Hall told PFW. “The guy got opportunities to make plays, and that’s all Michael Jenkins needs. I’m positive he can make those plays. He’s a great receiver, great guy. He’s definitely going to get it done this season.”
