Morgan Breslin NFL Draft Profile

Morgan Breslin, Senior, Linebacker, USC



It has been a busy college career thus far for Morgan Breslin. After high school, he attended a junior college and wracked up all kinds of numbers. Playing in JUCO for two years, Breslin was then able to transfer to the big time, division one football. He went to USC where he promptly started all of 2012 at defensive end. In essentially his first season playing what we consider real collegiate football, Breslin went off, tallying 13.0 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss. Both figures led the Trojans and ranked him competitively nationally with all the best pass rushers around. Now, entering his senior season, he is moving yet again, this time to outside linebacker. He should still be able to show off his pass rushing ability, just from a different vantage point.


Final Projection:

One year is often enough for NFL teams to fall in love with a defensive player who can get to the quarterback. However, that one year is usually the player's final in college. With Breslin, it was his first. Thus, Morgan Breslin needs to perform as a senior to prove that junior year performance was not a fluke or a result of players around him and scheme. Although he doesn't have to completely duplicate his junior year totals, coming close should put him squarely in first round draft pick territory whereas a disappointing season will leave teams confused as which year is the real Breslin.
