Morrison doesn't always get the credit he deserves because the Aztecs were mired in mediocrity for most of his college career. Even still, the Oakland, Calif., native finished his four years at SDSU as the most decorated player since Marshall Faulk.
Morrison finished second in career tackles with 396. He was twice named the MWC Defensive Player of the Year and was a two-time consensus All-American.
Morrison returned home when he was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the 2005 draft.
I understand Urlacher only played a year in the conference, but 8 is too low for a guy who did it all in ABQ. Really can't argue with anyone else . . .
It's crap that Bradlee Van Pelt isn't on this list. I believe along with Dalton he is the only other play to win two play of the year awards in the MWC.

Thanks Catch. I'll say that if BSU was in the MWC forMoore's four years (or probably even 3 out of the 4), he would have dropped Smith to #2. Moore was incredible, but 75% of his career was in a different conference--including his best season.
An intelligent, well thought out list. Would be easy to put someone like Moore higher (he may deserve it) and forget guys like Hughes and Weddle. Of course, had Boise been in the MWC earlier, this list would look a lot different.
