As an alternative to the video scouting report I did earlier this week, I figured I would type up notes for those of you wishing to get my opinion without sitting 10 minutes of TV tape.
-One of the best deep balls in the class.
-Vertical teams like Arizona, Cleveland, and Jacksonville should be on the lookout for him.
-Even incompletions are almost completions, rarely misses any pass by a significant amount.
TOO MANY SACKS
-Too skinny to be taking hits hits like option quarterbacks.
-Holding the onto the ball works both ways, patience also leads to big plays.
-A QB who can run, but chooses to look for the throw first.
-Underrated footwork is better than most claim it to be.
-Makes plays by moving, re-setting feet in and out of the pocket.
BALL DIES SHORT
-Passes will randomly die short on short throws.
-Happened in 3 of 5 games.
ROLLING LEFT; SIDELINE
-Again, underrated footwork.
-Russell Wilson comparisons are most likely due to height and ability to rollout/throw well to the left sideline.
-Knows who to throw it over/under and how to do it.
-Won the NC State game largely due to hard count, which lead to offside penalties/"Free Plays".
Morris throws the deep ball every time a free play is given to him (as every QB should).
-Reads/progresses well when plays allowed to develop.
-As stated earlier, height not an issue for me as much as weight, due to his release point.
-Only 2 tipped passes in 5 games.
-Morris has confidence in himself, sometimes too much.
-Some passes might be due to system.
-Ball may not be smart balls, but the best way to throw them if you were asked to make them.
