Scouting Report: Nyles Morgan
School: Notre Dame Position: Inside Linebacker Class: Senior Height: 6-1 Weight: 245 lbs Projected Draft Round: 5-7
A key component to the Notre Dame defense’s 4-2-5 defense, Morgan has been a team leader for much of his college career. However, he was stripped of his captain’s C before his final game, something he will have to explain during interviews with teams. A “move forward” linebacker that shows superb recognition skills for where the play is going, and a determined and effective tackler. May best fit with a 3-4 defense as the inside linebacker that controls the gaps, allowing the other inside linebacker to make plays.
