Morrison has been here since 2004, and wasn't promoted to Director of Amateur Scouting until 2006. Since then we have drafted in the 2nd round six times.

2006- Nikolai Kulemin --Has had a solid career in Toronto, a steal for a 2nd rounder
2008- Jimmy Hayes --Traded for the 43rd pick in the 2010 NHL draft(Brad Ross)
2009- Kenny Ryan --Too early to write off
2009- Jesse Blacker --Too early to write off
2010- Brad Ross --Too early to write off
2012- Matt Finn --Too early to write off

Since 2004, we have missed drafting in the 2nd round 4 years total. So if it's anybody fault, its the god damn GM that keeps trading away our 2nd rounders.

Some other late round picks that Morrison has drafted

-Carl Gunnarsson
-Leo Komarov
-Anton Stralman
-Victor Stalberg
-Matt Frattin
-James Reimer

It's not great, but it isn't terrible either. I don't think Morrison is the problem, and before anybody jumps me, I'm not saying Burke is either.

Looking back further than that though I would have to agree with you (Before Morrison) our 2nd round drafting is abysmal. After Stajan, no 2nd rounder of ours played more than 200 games since we drafted Felix Potvin in 1990.
