Wes Phillips on the Progress of Vikings Rookie QB Jaren Hall

“There’s a lot to learn in a short time, but so far he’s progressed really well,” Phillips said earlier this month at Vikings OTAs. “He’s learning how to play in an NFL system. They have a great program at BYU and their system’s great for what they do, but there’s definitely some different things that he’s had to work on with footwork and kind of tying your feet to the reads, which is a little different, I think, than maybe what he’s done.”
Then he had to take what he’s learned to the practice field. But because Hall is the No. 3 quarterback, his reps during full-team periods are limited to sessions on the secondary field with other second, third, and fourth-stringers. That means an important part of practice is sticking around afterwards to get in extra work.
