Derrick Morgan #91 OLB
Height: 6-4 Weight: 261 Age: 28
Born: 1/6/1989 Lancaster , PA
College: Georgia Tech
Experience: 8th season
High School: Coatesville Area HS [PA]
Selected By: Tennessee Titans
Pick (Overall): 16 (16)
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.
