  01/02/21 - *Darren HallrJr/2021, San Diego State, 5-11, 189 (DS#25 CB) + More +

  San Diego State's defensive secondary was perhaps the deepest position group - and certainly most experienced - on the team this season. But the Aztecs could be auditioning for five new starters in the spring. In recent days, three starters - junior cornerback Darren Hall and senior safeties Tariq Thompson and Dwayne Johnson Jr. - declared on social media for the 2021 NFL Draft. Two other senior starters - cornerback Tayler Hawkins and safety Trenton Thompson - also could be gone. The NCAA has extended an extra year of eligibility to players amid the COVID-19 crisis, so Hawkins and Thompson could potentially return. Their 2021 plans have not yet been made public. - San Diego Union Tribune
