by Mitchell Meyer

Stanley Morgan Jr.

6’1” 194 pounds

2018 Statistics

70 rec, 1004 yd, 7 TD’s

Strengths

Route Running: One of the more polished route runners of this class due to his unique ability to glide past defenders with his sharp cuts, lateral quickness, and his head fakes.

Football IQ: Innate ability to find the open spots in zone defenses in the way he manipulates defenders with fluid footwork, loose hips, and body positioning.

Hands: He illustrates soft hands and can effectively secure the ball extending from his frame, fully utilizing his 31” arms and 7/8th” hands.

Versatility: He has shown full complement of the route tree, experience lining up inside and outside of the numbers, as well as time spent returning.

Weaknesses

Physical Corners: He can be jammed up against a strong and physical corner who can put hands on him at the line of Scrimmage.

Contested Catches: When the ball is in the air, and there is hand battling back and forth for position, he often loses concentration of the ball.

Red Flag: Off the field incident and was arrested in 2017.

Overall

Stanley Morgan Jr., son of the former Patriot and Colt WR Stanley Morgan, is someone who might be flying under the radar with a third to fourth round selection. The all time receiver and only player to cap 1000 yards in a season at Nebraska University can best be utilized in the slot at the next level. Playing in the Big Ten he has had valuable experience playing against some top tier corners like Denzel Ward of Ohio State University, who he scored a touchdown on in 2017. Even though he has a capped ceiling due to his non-elite speed and explosion, he has illustrated he can be a productive player as well as a playmaker in the right system.
