    Sacks are great, but I prefer consistent play each week. And of course someone who doesnt get hurt. I see a big year for Morgan with the whole new supporting cast around him this year.

    I never got the Morgan hate. Got injured bad his rookie year. Coming back from bad injury 2nd year. Played pretty damn well last year. Yeah he might not have been worth a 1st round pick yet, but is far from a bust. 8/10 would draft again.

    Yes, totally agree. If Morgan can take that next step he can be a top 10 DE. Some guys need to remember this guy was out/limited by injuries his first two years. Last year he was a good player but still needs some work. I wish there was more to go by rather than PFF just to get different view points but whenever I watched a Titans game he looked pretty good, the sack totals just aren't there.

    A legit pocket pushing DT will do a lot to help Morgan but I don't believe hat he can be called a straight bust because at the very worse he would be a 3rd DE on any team in the NFL. IMO the term bust is as overused has the term elite because I don't see how a player that provides a positive impact can be rightly called a bust.

    Vernon Gholston is a bust.
    Derrick Morgan is not.

    I like Morgan as well. Was the only DE worth a damn against the run last year, and consistent pressure on the QB. While I do think sacks aren't everything, I would like to see him improve that total to 10+. He's a great tackler as well.
