Player Analysis from Morgan’s NFL player profile

“While some scouts see Morgan as ‘just a guy’ with average size and athleticism who fails to stand out as a prospect, others may appreciate his professional approach to the position and competitive demeanor. He's best judged by the sum of his parts, which takes into account his toughness and durability, as well. He doesn't open wide catch windows, but his ball skills and ability to haul in contested catches tend to make up for it. He could start off as a WR4/5 but has the chance to find playing time as he works his way up.”


Prospect Grade

Morgan currently grades at 5.50, which means he has a “chance to become an NFL starter.”
