Jordan Morgan 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- Competed as a shot put thrower in track and field
- Consensus three-star recruit
- Scheme tendencies: Spread offense with run emphasis
- 2022 projected role: Starting LT
Pros: Jordan Morgan plays with a physical demeanor and style. He displaces and washes edge rushers during run-blocking sequences. He pops out of his stance with a nice roll from his hips to make contact with his defender. He fared well in his match-up against Cameron Thomas. Morgan uses his length and punch placement to keep rushers at bay. His athleticism shines when pulling on screens and running plays. His hands are impressive—Morgan can counter and reset during combative sequences. His hand power allows him to latch and control his opponents. For an OL of his size, he has decent feet to mirror rushers. He displays the ability to absorb power and anchor with his strong lower body.
Cons: Jordan Morgan’s lateral strides can be a bit restricted and segmented. With his strong and powerful hands, his punches are thrown with wide spacing. He does not consistently cover his chest, especially in the run game. He tends to attack defenders with high leverage in the run game, decreasing his overall balance. Improving his knee bend to eliminate waist bending will help him. His change of direction once he is committed outside is concerning. Twitchy rushers can stress his upfield shoulder and footspeed.
