Marvin Hall Jr. played college football under Steve Sarkisian at the University of Washington. 

In his time with the Huskies, he recorded 25 catches for 409 yards at wide reciever. 

Hall signed with Detroit the week of the Arizona Cardinals game after being waived by the Bears.

Now with the Lions, he is making fans take notice due to his big play capabilities. 

“It’s surreal, just to take the path I took, and to make the impact I’ve made here, it’s a blessing,” Hall said. 

Hall is averaging 40.2 yards per catch. In three straight games, he has a reception of over 45-yards.

What is clearly an asset in Hall's game is his speed. At his pro-day, he reportedly ran a 4.28-second 40-yard dash.

In a television interview with Dan Miller of Fox 2, Hall expressed, "It's fun. It's surreal. Being able to find a home. Find great guys and make plays when I can."

Prior to Detroit, Hall made stops at Oakland, Arizona, Atlanta and Chicago. 

Responding to a question from Miller regarding his many stops in the NFL, Hall expressed,"You can't really get too high and get too low. Trust the process. Trust in the man upstairs and wherever you go continue to battle."


Against the Oakland Raiders, it will be the first NFL game Hall has played in his home state of California.
