The next linebacker could very well be the most intense player on the field Saturday.  His name is Antonio Morrison out of the University of Florida.

The way he plays jumps out at you.  By being very aggressive and not afraid to take on blockers is both a positive and a negative. Sometimes he becomes too aggressive and loses containment or misdiagnoses the play at times.

One thing to know about him is that he is going to give everything he’s got.  He had to have multiple surgeries on his knee back in 2014 but didn’t miss a game in 2015.  That alone shows you that he has a great work ethic and is going to try his best.

Morrison wouldn’t be a bad pick for the Saints in the later rounds to help add some depth at the position and have him bring his intensity to special teams as well.
