49ers Rookie WR Josh Morgan

WHO IS THIS GUY?! I mean, I know who he is and where he came from...but...WHO IS THIS GUY?!

I can't remember the last time I've seen a 49ers' WR get open or behind a defense since Terrell Owens. Morgan has been the 49ers' top receiver in the first 2 preseason games. He 's making the big plays. Alright, I must admit. It is STILL preseason. I must'nt get too excited here. BUT I CAN'T HELP IT! Us 49er fans haven't had much to get excited about the last few years. The signing of Isaac Bruce and Bryant Johnson has been the 49ers biggest news regarding the WR position *yawn*. Now this Morgan guy breaks out 2 games in a row. I mean is he that good? Only time will tell.

I recall in April, many of us 49er faithful were hoping to see the 49ers land on of the top WR in this year's NFL draft (Devin Thomas, Early Doucet, James Hardy, DeSean Jackson, Malcolm Kelly, just to name a few). Many of us were disappointed when the 49ers passed on a receiver early. Maybe this was the plan all along.

I know Morgan had some off field issues at Virginia Tech, but is he that talented? I'm hoping that he provides us the kind of spark that we need for the regular season. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I've always said that a team should draft based on it's own thought processes and strategies and not what the general public thinks. Could Morgan be a 6th round gem? Maybe the 49ers knew something about Morgan that no one else did...

...again, only time willl tell and I can't help to be excited about that.
