Morgan is an extremely productive defensive end with a good combination of size and speed who fits in a 4-3. Shows great range in run pursuit. Has been a very steady, consistent performer. Is an explosive tackler. Has great pass rushing instincts and now has a variety of moves. Plays with a lot of toughness and intelligence at all times.
Morgan lacks some power with his initial punch and at the point of attack. He needs to improve his consistency when disengaging and separating versus the run. We question his scheme versatility, and he does not appear to be a fit coming off the edge from OLB in a 3-4 or holding up as a 3-4 end.
