A few weeks back, I did a "video time" post that featured four outside linebacker prospects. This week I will add to that list.

While I like Morgan's ability to both rush the passer and defend the run, I'm far from sold on his ability to drop into coverage, which is something an OLB in this defense has to occasionally do. I'm just not sold on Morgan's ability to play in space:
