Default Rams Deal fifth for Dante Hall

Rams deal fifth-round pick for Hall
ESPN.com news services

The St. Louis Rams traded a fifth-round pick in this weekend's NFL draft to the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday to acquire one of the NFL's most dynamic kick returners.

"We have filled a need with one of the top players in football at his specialty, returning punts and kicks," Rams coach Scott Linehan said. "Dante will fit in nicely on our special teams and can be utilized as a receiver in certain situations."

Hall has 12 career kick-return touchdowns, one behind Eric Metcalf for second all-time. Brian Mitchell holds the NFL record for kick-return TDs with 14. Hall had one kick-return touchdown in 2006.

Last season, Hall returned 53 kickoffs for a 22.8-yard average and 27 punts for an 8.9-yard average. He also had 26 receptions for two touchdowns.

Either an indication that Hall's value definitely has slipped or that vets with significant contracts do not bring the level of traded draft picks one might expect.

Look for them to draft Ted Ginn Jr. of Ohio State.

For a FIFTH ROUNDER??? With that speed??

Even IF his speed has slipped... I would have loved to pick him up to shore up our punt return/kick return game!

Willie Ried should be healthy and he should be out punt and kickoff guy.

With all due respect, Preacher, I don't think a KR who could never seem to crack the starting lineup at WR warrants anything higher than a 5th, personally, regardless of how fast he is. Reynaldo Nehemiah was fast too, but he stuck around in SF (not to mention the NFL as a whole) long enough for a cup of coffee.

I doubt ginn falls to KC, unless KC moves up to get him. I bet Herm takes defense 1st round tho. Herm cares nothing about that offense and will dismantle it and it will only get worse in KC the next couple years. I personally think Herm will have KC down in the gutter with the Raiders within the next 3 years..
