Joe Morgan had an awesome interview today with NFL Draft Zone
 
Check this interview out, I love this kid, great answers. He is the future of the Saints. I am a huge fan of Morgan. This has to be one of the best interviews because he is a true small schooler that made it to the next level. Gotta love those stories.

I like how they linked to the great catch too. Great to see that again.

Sounds like a very humble young man...I like it.

True...I like how he doesn't shy away from explaining why he transfered to Walsh. He owned it and said he got into trouble but the move to Walsh humbled him and made him grow up and credits Walsh and the coach for giving him a chance and getting him ready for the NFL.

I think thats typical for a lot of college students not just athletes. I know I grew up in a tight knit family...it kept me in check during high school. But once I moved away from home, staying in a dorm room, not having anyone like your mom force you to go to class or do your homework.....man my first semester grades were so bad...all I did was drink and party (I was going to college in Germany...you can go to clubs at 16...drink at 18).

Eventually I got my act together though once I was reminded sternly by my parents that my higher education was not free. LOL.

I totally understand where you're coming from. I was raised on a cattle ranch and going to college in the city required some hard life lessons. When I found out that the bars are open 24/7 in New Orleans I was in trouble. It's so easy to get side tracked.
What I like about this young man is he did in fact own up to his bad judgement. He dedicated himself to hard work and it's about to pay off. Just keep working hard son. It looks like you've got the talent to make it.:cool:

The kind of guy that I really get behind and pull for - a really good story. I cannot help but to admire a man who messes up, owns it, and sets out to redeem himself publicly.

Pro Football Zone Interview: New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan
 
When you follow small school, and over-looked prospects, New Orleans Saints Wide Receiver Joe Morgan is considered a true success story. A guy many other players in his similar position can look up to. Morgan was a University of Illinois transfer, who did not light the college football landscape ablaze at Walsh University. The assumption that one must dominate the smaller divisions in order to be an NFL success, did not prove to be true in the case of Morgan. In his final season with the Cavaliers, Morgan logged 653 yards and 5 touchdowns. That amount would be a hard sell to most “draftniks”. And true to form, Morgan was not a highly rated prospect, although he did earn an invite to the NFL Combine (where he would run a 4.44 40 yard dash, vertical jump 35.5 inches and log a 6.91 in the 3 cone). As was somewhat expected, Morgan went undrafted in the 2011 draft. However, from that point on, his fate became his own. And in the end, he emerged as one of New Orleans brightest young stars by the end of the 2012 season. In his sophomore campaign, Joe showed big-play ability. He piled 379 yards and 3 touchdowns, at a 37.9 average. By comparison, look at the 2012 seasons of more hyped WR’s in the 2011 draft, all taken within the first 100 picks- Jonathan Baldwin (K.C. Chiefs-1st round)- 325 yards, 1 td; Austin Pettis (St. Louis Rams-3rd round) 261 yards 4 tds; Titus Young (Detroit Lions- 2nd Round)- 383 yards, 4 touchdowns & cut and Jerrel Jernigan (N.Y. Giants-3rd Round)- ready? 22 yards. 22….yards. It just goes to show you, it pays to think outside the box in the NFL Draft, and to pay attention to more players than just whom Mel Kiper is talking about. This…is Joe Morgan’s story. My interview with NFL-underdog success story.
