Notes:
Named a First-Team All-American in 2009, giving him more than enough reason to forego his senior season and make himself available for this draft...Morgan was also selected a First-Team All-ACC performer, and was named the league's Defensive Player of the Year as he posted 12.5 sacks and 18.0 tackles for loss as a junior...Started all 13 games in 2008, earning honorable mention All-ACC honors as he tied for second nationally with four fumble recoveries, collecting one in three consecutive games...Morgan posted seven sacks and 9.5 TFLs in 2008, a huge step in the right direction after logging a mere nine total tackles in 12 games in 2007...Uses his hands effectively, but doesn't always get off the line well...Morgan is expected to contribute right away for a Tennessee team lacking a consistent pass rush.
