However, he has struggled to put it all together.
Last year was definitely his best year by far as...
Derrick Morgan was the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and had high expectations after 55 tackles, 18.5 for loss, and 12.5 sacks in his final year at Georgia Tech. However, with just 5 career sacks in 2 years, Morgan is now better known as the guy who was selected one pick after Jason Pierre Paul.
