The upcoming 2013 NFL draft this week is full of talented young outside pass-rushers, including defensive ends and outside linebackers. Former USC defensive end Morgan Breslin has not risen to the very top of the list but remains a highly intriguing possibility for several NFL teams.
At 6'2'' and 250 pounds, he has the physical talent and the fundamental skills that NFL scouts look for in a pass-rushing prospect.
Breslin has a high ceiling and the potential to bring long-term value to any NFL franchise as a three-down defensive player. The most likely target positions for him would be as an edge-rusher, either as a 4-3 defensive end or a 3-4 outside linebacker.
His most notable traits include a high motor and good edge-rushing ability. While he has played mostly defensive end, he has shown the ability to be effective when standing up. He has the frame and speed to be developed into an NFL linebacker.
Here are some of Breslin's best and most revealing highlights from his college career playing for the USC Trojans.
