Antonio Morrison Highlights and Profile

The Packers added depth at the Linebacker position with the addition of Antonio Morrison. The forth round draft choice of the Colts in 2016 will add depth to a linebacker group absent Jake Ryan and with an injured Oren Burks. Here are Morrison’s pro day results:

PRO DAY RESULTS

40-yard dash: 5.1 seconds
20-yard short shuttle: 4.6 seconds
3-cone: 7.69 seconds
Vertical: 30 inches
Broad jump: 9 feet, 3 inches
Bench: 23 reps of 225 pounds

At 6’1″ and weighing in the low 230’s, Morrison’s size was considered a barrier in college. That didn’t stop him from leading the Colts in tackles last year (109) and Morrison, assuming he has grown up (a couple arrests in his past) his aggression on the field should be a plus on a defense that needs an attitude adjustment. Morrison doesn’t have a lot of speed but his quickness is on display and the way he drives his hips through tackles is top notch. It should be noted that the linebacker position was the weakest position group on the Colts’ defense last season so Morrison could have just been the guy who floated to the top and the high tackle count is not uncommon from ILB regardless of the team. Here are some highlights and there is a lot to like about this young player, balanced, aggressive and tackles through opponents. His instincts are not the best but he is slated as a two-down backer and may be a real benefit at that role.
