Michael Morgan
Position: OLB
Class:  5Sr
School: USC
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-3.5
WT: 225
40 Time: 4.58
Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 57 tackles and three tackles for loss as a senior after recording 50 tackles and 13 tackles for loss prior year.

Positives: "Athletic linebacker who's shown flashes of NFL ability the past two years. Displays good movement skills, fluid in every direction of the field and gets depth on pass drops. Covers a lot of area, is fast out to the flanks in pursuit, and explosive at the point. Tackles well and delivers hard hits."

Negatives: Easily pushed from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Minimal force on the blitz. Late reacting and shows marginal instincts.

Analysis: Morgan is a solid athlete with good size and growth potential. He flashes ability as a weak side prospect but has never shown a complete game. Morgan could make a roster as a backup linebacker if he produces on special teams.

Projection: FA
