The Sacramento Bee reports that the Niners have come to terms with 6th round draft pick Josh Morgan. The wide out from Virginia Tech signs a four-year deal. Last season in 14 games he caught 46 passes for 552 yards and five scores. Below is a quick scouting report on Morgan from NFLDraftCountdown.com:
Very athletic…Nice size and excellent bulk…More quick than fast…Has pretty good hands…Great leaper with terrific ball skills and body control..He knows how to get open…Strong and physical…Also offers value on special teams…Has some upside.
Doesn’t have great timed speed and lacks a burst…Not much of a deep threat…Is not real elusive and won’t do much after the catch..Has been known to drop some catchable balls…Gives a sub par effort when it comes to blocking….Underachiever with a poor work ethic…Ran into off-the-field trouble and his character is an issue.
Prepped at Fork Union Military Academy…Suspended in 2006 after being arrested and charged with obstructing a police officer…Profiles as a possession type at the pro level…He definitely has some physical tools to work with but his questionable intangibles might very well prevent him from ever really reaching his full potential.
