Tyrant Analysis

Morgan could very well be the nastiest Offensive Lineman at any level this year. Though he’s an excellent pass blocker, watching him run block on film is absolutely terrifying. He loves to play through the whistle, and brings a fiery competitiveness to each game.His size and athleticism are both NFL ready to play Guard. Morgan has the opportunity to mix it up with other NFL talents at this year’s Reese’s Senior Bowl, and I expect him to impress.  Tyrant Scouting gave him a Draftable Grade in this years Small School Draft Overview.
