He had better be focused on impressing someone else... the "beat writers" don't pick the final roster.
Would like to see him take a spot from someone else but I don't think its going to happen.
A lot of buzz around this kid Morgan, Carroo could be in trouble. I don't remember even hearing about Carroo last year during camp.
Morgan sounds good but I wouldn't give up on Carroo yet. Really like the competition this year.
He better impress Rizzi if he wants to make this roster.
I would think that the roster spot that Morgan could take would be Grant's if he can CATCH and return punts.
Well if the beat writers are OKing it then why the hell not!?
If he is truly that much better, than yes he might challenge Grant or Caroo. Unless we have an injury, I would consider stashing him away on the practice squad. Work on punt return duties and if Grant fails to show improvement we bring him up for a chance.
Can't wait to watch these back-end receivers in the preseason games.
Probably all hype. Caroo is better IMO. So that leaves Grant, Ford, Morgan and the others for 1 spot
Practice squad guy for now...looks like he a will make a roster though in the near future.
Now if Grant gets cut, and Scott's injury lingers....Drew may have a shot.
Miami carried six receivers for most of the 2015 and 16 seasons, so if they do that again they'll have two spots up for grabs after, Landry, Parker, Stills and Carroo. Grant, Morgan, Lewis, Ford, Scott, Stringfellow, Owusu and Mathews currently fighting for those two spots and maybe 2 practice squad spots.
I can't stop hearing this man's name. Hard to believe he won't make the 53 at this point.
If he gets cut just to be signed to the practice squad, New England grabs him and makes him a superstar..
I believe we entered 2016 with 5 receivers with Carroo and Grant as the 4 & 5 guys and stayed there most of the year until they activated Rashawn Scott . 2015 was a different regime.
They could go with 6 this year because they may only go with 9 OL instead of 10 like last year. I just don't see the 10th guy on the roster for the line. I don't see them going with 5 RB's again either so that makes it more likely to keep 6 WR's. There were times last year when we had 4 TE's on the 53.
Poor Drew Morgan, all that work in camp to impress the right people, and then the kiss of death.
I'd love to see Drew, Stringfellow, Praise, & Chase make the roster.
However, we haven't heard one peep about Praise or Allen....hopefully when the pads come on we'll hear more. Hard for an LB/DL to make noise wearing tight shorts.
Watching the Arkansas vs. VT bowl game this year that had both Morgan and Ford in it. Based on that game...give me Morgan in a second over Ford! The guy doesn't give up. The effort there is what you want and he is willing to block. I like this kid as my dark horse this year...
The OTAs are for teaching so they spend extra time with guys that don't know the playbook thus giving them more of a chance to impress. It means nothing till they get pads on, and the teaching subsides to evaluation. Devante Parker won OTAs his rookie season, and he didn't get on the field till week 10. OTAs are for the rookies, and the guys you hear about in OTA almost every year are forgotten by preseason game 3.
It's not the end-all-be-all drill for players but he was the slowest WR at the combine with 4.74. For comparison, 13 defensive lineman ran faster than Morgan.
What caught your eye about Morgan in that bowl game? Was it his lost fumble in the beginning of the 3rd qtr signaling the momentum swing in VT's favor in which Arkansas never scored again, that turnover led to a VT touchdown, and ultimately spurred Hokies comeback? Just curious.
Ughh, less than two weeks before the rooks start training camp.
I promised myself I wouldn't click any more UDFA threads...Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.
Sniffing glue is so yesterday. Real trendy assholes snort chocolate.
Did they make another Airplane movie?
Or did that happen in Soul Plane? My Lord and savior forbid me to watch it...
Just snap the ball and throw 3 hail Mary's.
Literal "nose candy"
Link: People Are Getting High By Snorting Fancy Chocolate
There's a Jordan Phillips joke waiting to happen.
I could probably get some hippies here in Hawaii to start snorting cacao powder...non-gmo, of course.
The inherent danger in all this snorting chocolate is when it becomes illegal, you'll have dead dogs littering airports everywhere as soon as the quality of profylactics diminish...
Can I use that for the title of my autobiography?
That would imply that Blowmars words actually carry weight.
I could care less about a fumble when a guy is fighting to get every inch. He could have just gone down...he didn't. It is that effort that I loved.
Ford was "just another guy" in the game I watched and got lucky from the replay booth calling his fumble incomplete...so, they both had fumbles as far as I'm concerned. The difference is, one showed real effort...one didn't.
Morgan reminds me of Eric Decker and how he plays.
And it's, "couldn't" care less, "Dr".
"Sons of Shula"...stopped reading...
Let's not get personal guys.
No, that would imply Blowmar's words just Jinxed Morgan, and the opposite will be happening once pre-season opens.
