There wasn’t much disagreement about whether Morgan was a good or bad pick. Had the poll options been more extensive (e.g. include an “85”), the 80.47 grade could’ve easily jumped up a couple points.
Excluding “incomplete” votes, 11 of 85 voters (12.94 percent) chose a grade lower than a “B.” Nobody chose anything less than average. Three voters considered this as an “A,” which is an excellent pick. The three voters who chose “incomplete” probably believed that it was too soon to a evaluate a player who missed all but four games of his rookie season with an injury. They’d prefer to wait until he finishes a complete third season.
For Morgan, the 2013-14 NFL season could go a long way in determining his overall value. The farther removed Morgan has gotten from the ACL injury that he suffered during his 2010-11 rookie season, the better he has gotten. Although Morgan has 10.5 sacks over his first three seasons, 6.5 of those came this past season.
