Pros

Has the size and length for the NFL. Has a strong punch, which he lands with full length of his arms. Has good, consistent hand placement. Has light feet when coming out of his stance.

Puts his feet into proper position right away. Has good bend at his knees. Finisher and has the attitude you want in offensive linemen. Mean and nasty. Smart with high football IQ. Composed movements. Drives through his blocks with strong lower body.

Cons

Ducks into blocks far too often. Level of competition wasn’t what teams desire and struggled when taking on stronger competition. Is a multi year project.

Has some balance issues. Lunges to land his punch because he tries to land it with full arm extension. Needs to do better at keeping his feet under him.

Morgan was a four year starter at left tackle, but he won’t be a tackle at the NFL level. The switch to guard will take some time, but more time will be spent getting him up to NFL speed and power from Division II level of play.

The biggest issues will be keeping his balance and lunging in check and fixed. If that is done, he could develop into a starter at guard.

Fit With The Broncos

Denver has a lot of players manning the guard position to where they will be cutting a draft pick when trimming down to the 53-man roster. Ronald Leary, Max Garcia, Michael Schofield, Ty Sambrailo and Connor McGovern stand as the top five, and at most four of them make it.

Adding a project to them gives Denver another name, but one they could look to stash on the practice squad. For them to do that, they would probably be looking his way in the 5th round or later, which is where he probably goes.

Draft Grade: Round 6

Where He Goes: Round 5 (late), Round 6 (mid)
