Oregon State legend Ryan Nall, or as Brady Hoke’s family has been instructed to call him “You know who” made his professional debut last night against the Baltimore Ravens. In case you don’t remember the Central Catholic alum declared for the draft early, leaving one year of eligibility on the table. He was signed by the Chicago Bears after going undrafted in April.
Nall, who has been impressive in the early parts of Bears camp didn’t see any action on offense until midway through the 3rd quarter in the annual Hall of Fame game ended up with 7 carries on the night. Unfortunately he did not find a whole lot of daylight on any of those carries, only picking up 13 yard with his longest run going for 4. He was on the receiving end of one pass that netted the Bears 5 yards. He did see some action on special teams, which could be a determining factor in the Bears final decisions. If he can continue to contribute on special teams and make a better impression on the offensive side of things in the remaining 3 preseason games he will have a real shot to become a full fledged NFL player.
What do you think Beaver Nation? Does Ryan Nall make the Bears 53 man roster?
