Chicago Bears rookie Deiondre’ Hall starred at Blue Springs and certainly wouldn’t have minded ending up a Chief.

But Hall, a 6-foot-2, 199-pound rookie cornerback who was selected by the Bears in the fourth round of this year’s draft, is making the most of his situation in Chicago, as the Chiefs learned on Saturday.

That’s when Hall made them pay for passing on him, as he intercepted a deflected pass in the third quarter of the Bears’ 23-7 loss on Saturday.

Hall, who went to college at Northern Iowa, caught the pass by quarterback Aaron Murray – which was high –– and deflected off the hands of rookie receiver Demarcus Robinson, who was taken one spot ahead of him (No. 126 overall) in the draft.

Hall is tied for fifth on the Bears in tackles with six this preseason and has also recorded three pass deflection. His interception Saturday was his first of the preseason.
