Bio

Leon Hall is a cornerback for the Cincinnati Bengals. In seven NFL seasons, he has 23 interceptions and has been a starter since his rookie season. In 2012, he received the Ed Block Courage Award as a role model of inspiration, courage and sportsmanship.

Early Life

Hall was born on December 9, 1984 in Oceanside California. He attended Vista High School. A sure pair of hands gave him opportunities to play wide receiver and defensive back. Ultimately, he committed to playing the cornerback position once he enrolled in Michigan.

Michigan Wolverines

Hall arrived on campus and played immediately as a freshman. He caught three interceptions in his first year and was deemed a First-team All-American freshman. Interceptions weren’t the only impact of Hall’s game. In 2006, he had the most passes defended in the Big Ten Conference with 18 deflections. He currently holds the record for passes defended in Michigan school history with a total of 43.

Cincinnati Bengals

In the beginning stages of head coach Marvin Lewis’ plan to strengthen the defense, the Cincinnati Bengals drafted Hall as the 18th overall pick in the 2007 draft. Hall’s extensive and productive career at Michigan signified stability for the Bengals’ defensive backfield. He’s been consistent in defending passes in Cincinnati an ability he exhibited on the college level. He’s also shown solid tackling capabilities with 273 tackles in 7 seasons.
