Derrick Morgan to Test the Market

If we re-signed him I would ask him to put on a little weight to play on the interior DL. He just doesn't have the burst to do much on the outside anymore.

 

But with us most likely to move on we can now all revoice!


Vegan lifestyle could be going away!!!

Morgan never had the burst to do anything on the outside. He was a classic Fisher misevaluation. Good enough to keep a spot, not good enough to really make an impact. 

 

He got marginally better when moved to OLB from DE.

Clelin Ferrell. But he'll be gone most likely.

Thats about the only one I think would be worthy. I think OLB and DL is especially deep

Yep. 

 

I mean, the top DL will all be gone most likely except Simmons who we will not draft. 

 

The only defensive options at all are Lawrence and Ferrell (who won't be there!) from what I see.

We really need a bigger body that can hold up against the run, Iowa Edge Anthony Nelson is a guy that intrigues me in the 2nd round, not the most explosive guy speed wise but very long/powerful, wins with power/hand use.

I was listening to turron davenports show. He had jon ledyard on it and ledyard said burns is putting on weight in order to bulk up for the combine. Turron asked ledyard if burns, sweat, polite, lindstrom, and simmons were there for us at 19 which one he would take and he said burns.

I disagree. His injuries early in his career really shot his speed, I think. All the sacks he piled up the last 4-5 years were just him working harder and eating better than other guys.

 

He was healthy for a few games his rookie year and looked like The Freak off of the edge.

He didn't have that much burst at GT. He was just good at using his hands and body leverage.

A lot of people are reporting that Burns is probably going to come in around 250 and with his body type he could probably add about 10-15 lbs if needed, but at 250 he can keep his flexibility and speed around the edge.

Isn't the worry with him similar to that of Allen? Is a bit of a tweener Karl Klug type? I don't know how well he would play out in space at OLB. Although we do play in the nickle more than half the time.
