A 'Hall' of a competitor

Chad Hall, the 5-8, 187-pound 2nd Lt. in the Air Force, quietly is having a solid rookie camp. After spending his first handful of practices catching almost everything thrown his way, Hall is getting comfortable running routes. Like the stop-and-go-route leading to one of the top grabs of Thursday. Lining up wide, Hall beat double coverage and ran under a deep ball from rookie quarterback Mike Kafka.
Truth be told, there is no press coverage or pass rush on the passer. That said, Hall is looking as comfortable as some of the players who have been in the offense much longer.
Hall, 23, is a 2008 graduate of Air Force Academy, where he starred at wide receiver and running back. He caught the eye of an Eagles scout at a recent Pro Day at the University of Utah, then gladly trekked to Philly for a workout before signing a contract. The Eagles look at him as a Wes Welker-type slot receiver.
Hall had been supervising the maintenance of 28 F-16s in the Air Force, a 12-hour per day operation.
