The David Morgan Show

When David Morgan was drafted in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Viking fans didn’t know what they were getting.

But this top blocking tight end from UTSA with the long hair turned out to be a little different than Minnesota’s throwaway tight end draft picks, MyCole Pruitt and Bucky Hodges. He could actually play–and contribute.

The way to beat Chicago (twice!) is to use every offensive weapon possible. A criticism of Morgan could be his lack of availability in dealing with injuries, but as he is healthy, he needs to be hustled onto the football field!  Morgan can power block, pull and deliver punch, and he can leak and make catches.

Be aware that the Bears, as a fast young defense, are used to the natural grass of Soldier Field, and will be faster still on the U.S. Bank Stadium turf. The Vikings need to use that speed against them with misdirection, quick trap plays, and effective play-action.

And keep David Morgan on the field.
