2020 Fantasy Outlook
Morgan's a raw project, and in an ideal world for the Jets, the rookie fourth-rounder won't play a single snap once the games start to count in 2020. The Green Bay native grew up idolizing Brett Favre, and Morgan boasts a cannon of an arm and toughness reminiscent of the Packers legend. Morgan's all arm strength and no touch, however, so he'll need to greatly improve his accuracy and decision-making if he wants to stick in the NFL. As a rookie, he'll compete with David Fales for the team's backup quarterback spot. Read Past Outlooks

New York adds in fourth round
QBNew York Jets
April 25, 2020
The Jets selected Morgan in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 125th overall.
ANALYSIS
It's unlikely that this pick has anything to do with Sam Darnold, who's likely both far superior to Morgan in the meantime yet also possesses more developmental upside -- Morgan turned 23 in February, while Darnold doesn't turn 23 until June. Morgan is more likely a speculative developmental prospect, one the Jets perhaps hope to flip in a trade after a couple years of backup service behind Darnold. Most recently a starter for Florida International, Morgan (6-foot-4, 229) is a big, strong-armed quarterback who began his career at Bowling Green. The finer points of quarterback play elude Morgan at times, but he has some arm talent to work with.
