Following a four year stint with Northern Iowa, defensive back Deiondre' Hall was selected by the Chicago Bears with pick #127.

Hall had shown plenty of versatility during his time with the Panthers, playing at both corner and safety. During last season, he recorded six interceptions, three forced fumbles and 82 total tackles on his way to being named both an AP FCS All-American and the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

The Bears allowed 31 touchdown passes last season, creating a perfect scenario for Hill to fight for early playing time.

Congratulations to Deiondre' Hall and Northern Iowa for sending a player to the NFL.
