2005 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Kirk Morrison

Right in the San Diego Chargers backyard is a linebacker that is drawing heavy interest from around the league. After another solid season, Kirk Morrison is poised to enter the 2005 NFL Draft.

Scouting Report:  Kirk Morrison  School:  San Diego State

Ht:  6-1  Wt:  237  40:  4.81

The Good: Disciplined, hard hitting defender that flies around the football.  Quick to key or diagnose running plays, displays good first step quickness and relentless in pursuit of the ball carrier.  Quickly fills gaps up the field yet also displays speed to the sidelines.

The Bad: Stiff in reverse and has limitations in pass coverage.  Slow shedding blocks once engaged at the point.

The Skinny: A hard hitting, high revving defender, Morrison does an excellent job leading the defense, always playing all out.  To this point looks like a two-down defender that will be a demon on special teams at the next level.
