BIOGRAPHY: Rotated in and out of the lineup last season finishing the year with 16/4.5/1.5. Started 11 games as a junior posting career-high numbers of 30/8.5/4.
POSITIVES: Powerful defensive lineman with an inconsistent motor. Stout on the inside, holds his ground, and pushes opponents up the field. Gets off the snap with a good first step, plays with good pad level, and has a closing burst.
NEGATIVES: Lumbers about the field, lacks the ability to quickly change direction, and does not play with a sense of urgency. Poor hand technician and makes himself an easy target for blockers.
ANALYSIS: Morton has the physical skills to be used at a number of defensive line positions, but he is an underachiever who rarely works at his game and he lacks the intensity needed to make it at the next level.
