Stephen Morris, QB, Miami (FL)
 
Has a pretty good arm:

Zero potential.

If he was in the 2013 Draft he would have most likely been a UFA, at best a late 6th Round pick. Many QBs with better resumes and skill sets than Morris went in Round 4 or later. This coming year looks to be a really, really down year for QBs but I don't see him going much higher than the 5th Round.

I said before he could very well be the best QB from the Class of 2010, but that really isn't saying a lot. I wouldn't be shocked to see a huge drop off in production as he'll have his 3rd OC in 4 years with Coley being a huge game day drop off from Fisch.

Fisch had one more year of play calling experience when he got to UM than Coley had. Hard to say how much of a game day drop it'll be until Coley actually gets real expereince. Fisch wasn't the most perfect play caller, consitency wise anyway.

Morris has average size and intelligence but has one of the best arms in college football and will have a stacked offense this year. His production will probably be ton higher in his 2nd full year starting. Where he goes in the draft will depend on if he can improve his consistency and develop the mental game.

Listening to a NFL Draft 365 (Formerly NFL Draft Tracker) podcast and Bucky Brooks talked about the QBs he saw at the Manning Passing Academy and Brooks' says that Morris might have been the most talented passer that he saw there in terms of natural arm talent. Also said he has a strong arm, excellent anticipation and ball placement, he won the passing challenge that weekend, and said he has all the potential to be a franchise QB. He also brought up how he had 11 touchdowns and no interceptions his last four games.

I really like him and I think that had he come out he is someone who would've lit up the draft prep process and had his stock rise. I think he'll be someone who does very well in workouts and meetings, he's worked under an NFL coach with Jedd Fisch, and I think his mobility combined with his natural arm strength will make him someone that NFL teams take a serious look at.

He's a good player and I think he's underrated. I think he has the Miami stigma on his back.

DcmRulz 09-07-2013 02:40 PM

He makes great passes and some good decisions, and also make terrible passes and reads. He could go anywhere from 20 to 220 and I would not bat an eye.

Just can't get a good feel for him.

Yeah, he has #1 overall tools but decision making is ??????

draftguru151 09-07-2013 02:54 PM

Interested to see how he develops throughout the year. He always forces stuff even if it's not there, and today nothing was there today. New offense hasn't done him a ton of favors so far.

Hurricanes25 09-07-2013 04:16 PM

Yeah, Morris is a guy who doesn't take what the defense gives him. He usually wants more. He trusts his arm and sometimes it results in big and "wow" type plays. Sometimes, it results in interceptions or bad incompletions.

SAGA45 09-07-2013 08:18 PM

My thoughts on him - http://chiefconcerns.com/class-of-20...hen-morris-qb/

Got out to a hot start today against the Gators but his timing and accuracy went to crap after that 2nd TD. If it weren't for the Canes defense, this would've been an ugly affair.

bucfan12 09-08-2013 09:26 AM

He's got that gunslinger mentality. If it's not there, he thinks he's got the arm strength to force it into tight windows. Always looks for the bigger play rather than take what the defense gives him and let his skill guys make a play.

EDIT: I think this part is coachable. It's only two weeks in. We'll see how he progresses throughout the season.

I suspect with the raw tools he'll go pretty high (little flick of the wrists on his long TD on Saturday and the ball was right there) - but I agree it's tough to get a feel for him - perhaps he'll grow as the season moves on to make it easier.

This is only his second year starting in college, so there's definitely room to grow as a QB.

That said, I think he's the type of QB that looks fantastic in shorts and will interview v. well. Once the bright lights go on though......

I hope he does enough to get the Canes to the ACCCG. I'd be shocked if he's a big part of the reason why we're there though - he's too inconsistent.

D-Unit 09-12-2013 07:38 PM

He's either clueless or he looks high all the time.

jth1331 09-12-2013 10:05 PM

Tell me, honestly, what makes him any better than Barkley, Landry Jones, Glennon, etc?

Arm strength and athleticism. I'd take him over all 3 of those guys.

brat316 09-14-2013 09:25 PM

Brodie Croyle?

Hollywood 09-15-2013 04:37 PM

He's a poor mans Jay Cutler, which I'm not sure how that will work in the NFL. My guess it not very good.

I see a lot of Cutler in him as well. It could work out for him.

His arm isn't nearly as good as Cutler's. He doesn't have the physical skill to make up for his poor mental play.

His arm is definitely on Cutlers level. He's also a better athlete then Cutler.

SolidGold 09-17-2013 10:32 AM

This guy isn't very good. Decent college QB - not sure why there is any sort of buzz surrounding him.

^ This. I don't see anything particularly special about him, even at the collegiate level. He's light years from being a capable NFL backup.
