Todd Bowles Talks Logan Hall Pass Rush Impact — Without Being Asked

August 11th, 2022

Rookie DL Logan Hall

Ira Kaufman Podcast listeners heard the inside info earlier this week.

Today, head coach Todd Bowles confirmed it on national radio.

Bowles joined the SiriusXM NFL Radio training camp tour this afternoon and was asked about edge rusher Joe Tryon-Shoyinka and the team’s overall pass rush.

Bowles soon shifted to what he expects from the first pick of Round 2 in the 2022 NFL Draft, defensive tackle/end Logan Hall.

“With Logan Hall, we’ll try to get more push in the pocket and some pass rush with Logan, so that should allow those guys more 1-on-1s and they should be able to capitalize,” Bowles said, referring to his edge rushers as “those guys.”

Joe was intrigued by Bowles referencing Hall’s pass rush ability midway through training camp. Vita Vea is a monster, but he doesn’t play full-time. Newcomer DT Akiem Hicks is a powerful do-it-all guy who has looked good in camp, but he’s not expected to play full-time.

If Hall can spark more of a push than Ndamukong Suh did, which it seems Bowles believes is very likely, then the Bucs’ rush should be in fantastic shape.

    Weird Science. Oingo Boingo–underrated band.

    Watch Hall with those long legs and arms, penetrate….and that power. Thanks for listening to me this time Mr. Licht….

    JPP would never accept not starting.

    Suh would be good depth to be honest.

    The Bucs are going to have a pretty fierce pass rush this year I think. Hall is going to be sneaky good from the inside.

    Bowles has not had Hall’s speed at DT since he’s been here. Being a UCF fan I’ve seen Hall every year we played Houston. This kid makes plays sideline to sideline, you all will be blown away by his speed. He could literally run rings around Suh. That’s why he’s here, and Suh is not.

    Back To School–another great movie.

    Vea, Hicks, Hall, Gholston, Nacho represents strong talent for the Bucs interior DLine. Top 5 in the league up front I would say….

    The question is more one of health and availability for the whole season. Vea has missed 15 games in his 4 years with the Bucs. Hicks is almost certainly an upgrade over Suh at this point in their careers – but Hicks has missed 20 games in the last 3 years compared to Suh having never missed a game due to injury in his 12 year NFL career….

    I’m not advocating for Suh’s return unless its for a low price and the understanding that he is no longer a starter…. If Suh would agree to $3M to chase another ring and fully accept that age has relegated him to back up status – then I could certainly see some benefit to bringing him back to play limited snaps when the starters need a breather – but mostly as an insurance policy against injury.

    Definitely glad JL has used our 1st pick on DLine/pass rushers the past 2 years though. We desperately needed to get younger up front on Defense.

    I wouldn’t mind a bit if Licht picks another DL or OLB high in next year’s draft either….
