NFL Transition

Morgan is one of the more intriguing tackle prospects in the 2024 draft, given his excellent size, body length and traits profile. Though his shorter arms could be a problem for some offensive line coaches in the NFL.

There is no question that he possesses the light feet and fluid athletic movement you want to see at the left tackle position. There will be many offensive line coaches that will not see him as an offensive tackle prospect because of his arm length but rather project they'll transition him into a guard prospect. Morgan has the needed traits to move inside to guard, with good size, play strength and more than enough physicality to make the transition relatively smooth. At guard, his narrow base and less than ideal lateral range would not be a concern,.

There were run game snaps at left tackle in which Morgan came off the ball low with excellent leverage, generating power through his hips and core. This helped him keep his feet moving to drive and sustain. That will be an absolutely necessary trait inside at guard.

Arm length will be a concern for some, but based on tape and his overall play traits, he can start his career at the left tackle position. The main question that coaches will need to answer is whether Morgan can pass protect 1-on-1 in third down — especially third and long situations. All offensive coordinators want to get all five eligible receivers out in routes without having to help their tackle with a tight end or running back throwing chip blocks or double teams.

Other Notes

Morgan stayed in state as a three-star recruit, playing for Arizona. He became the starting left tackle in the shortened COVID season of 2020. Morgan started 33 games in his final three seasons, all at left tackle, and was named First Team All-Pac 12 in 2023.
