Yeah, Burke is on record saying that the only picks he hand selects are 1st Rounders, and then relies heavily on his staff for the rest of the picks. I think he mentioned he lets them make those decisions for the most part because they've done all the hard work scouting during the year and deserve it or something like that.

However, I know that Morrison alone has a massive impact on who Burke selects in the 1st round. Two years ago he convinced Burke to take Biggs ahead of Percy, for example.
