Forget running back Thursday

Scrap running back Thursday, I'm calling this Derrick Morgan Thursday instead. My main point of interest in the Georgia Tech/Clemson game was to take a good look at Jonathan Dwyer and C.J. Spiller. However, Morgan (a junior DE) has stolen the show in the first quarter. He already has three sacks (taking his tally to 5 in two games). He's shown speed off the edge, a good spin move, strength to plow through blockers and get to the QB. If this guy declares for the draft next year, he's going to be pushing the top defensive lineman in an already loaded class.

NFL Draft Scout gives him a first round grade: "Derrick Morgan’s consistency is a sight to behold. The junior plays all-out on every snap, no matter the opponent, and excels against the run and pass."
