Chiefs Draft Rumors: KC Interested In Small School Wide Receiver

Yesterday, sports writer Brent Sobleski tweeted out that the Kansas City Chiefs held a visit with Walsh University WR Joe Morgan. Walsh is a small (2,500 students) university in North Canton, Ohio. They play their football games in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. The school's athletic programs play in the NAIA but are transitioning to Division II over the next few years.

Joe Morgan was originally enrolled at Illinois but transferred to Kent State after two seasons. He only played one semester at Kent State before finishing up his college career at Walsh University.  In addition to being a pretty good football player there, Morgan was also a noted track and field athlete.

It almost goes without saying that Morgan isn't projected to be drafted.None of these small school guys ever are. By far his best (but not really that impressive) two statistical seasons were with Walsh. He caught 38 passes in 2009 and 41 in 2010. He also caught nine touchdowns in those two seasons.

Great Blue North Draft Report tabs Morgan as a potential sleeper draft pick:

Its a long, long way from the NAIA to the NFL, but Joe Morgan from Walsh will at least be at this year's scouting combine. And Morgan didn't even put up that great numbers at Walsh; indeed, he only had 41 receptions this past fall for 15.9 yards and 4 scores on a team that just didn't throw the ball all that well. What Morgan is though, is a very good athlete - he's a one-time NAIA indoor long-jump champion - who can really run and is projected to run in the low 4.3 range at the combine.

The Chiefs are probably viewing Morgan as special teams help first and wide receiver help second. Great athletes are always valued when it comes to undrafted free agent signings.
