Derrick Morgan   #91 OLB

Height: 6-4   Weight: 261   Age: 29

Born: 1/6/1989 Lancaster , PA

College: Georgia Tech

Experience: 9th season

High School: Coatesville Area HS [PA]









Draft 2010

Pick No.16

Selected By: Tennessee Titans

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 16 (16)

Pick Analysis: Morgan has been an extremely productive starter for the Yellow Jackets over the past two seasons. He has a good combination of size and athleticism for a 4-3 defensive end. He doesn?t appear to have the overall athleticism to project him as an outside backer in a 3-4 scheme. Morgan has improved his overall hand use and counter moves as a pass rusher with good quickness to close to the quarterback. He needs to improve his pad level and power at the point as a run defender but gives consistent effort in this phase of the game. Morgan is an excellent football player that should test out well for his dimensions and likely be highly touted in the 2010 draft.
