Possesses decent fluidity in his lower half when asked to sit into his stance off the line. However, lacks ideal balance and body control through contact. Even in tight areas, struggles to routinely get a good shot on his target and looks very linear trying to stick to blocks through the play. Is at his best on slide down blocks or when asked to kick out defenders inside. However, doesn't play nearly as low or explosive as an in-line guy and lacks the ability to initially engage and stay on defenders through the play.
Impression: Possesses a thick, unpleasant body, isn't real rangy or comfortable in pass protection and doesn't play with the kind of balance to stick to blocks in the run game."
Positive: Strong right tackle prospect who effectively protects his quarterback in pass protection. Stays square, keeps defenders in front of him, and anchors at the point of attack. Blocks with a nasty attitude, keeps his head on a swivel, and will hit several defenders off a single snap. Bends his knees, keeps his feet moving, and effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the action.
Negative: Lumbers about the field and not light on his feet. Not dominant on the right side. Lacks great tackle size.
Analysis: Morris has been a solid player the past two seasons and offers the versatility to be a backup for a number of positions on the offensive line."
Negatives: Can be slow getting off the snap... Doesn't break down especially well in space... Looks a little stiff on the move... Not real quick, struggles with edge speed... Gets upright when trying to reach the corner... Will lunge and lose his balance on the edge... Slides off too many blocks, doesn't stay engaged or control defender... Hand placement can get wide... Top heavy, doesn't bring his feet very well... Doesn't carry his weight well, appears to lack good conditioning."
Strengths: Great mass and good footwork at RT. Strong upper body.
Weaknesses: Lacks wingspan and necessary quickness in pass protection. Lacks burst off the line to get into defender in run block situation. Developmental prospect, could perhaps be converted to guard.
After missing the 2008 campaign, Morris came back bigger and better and started 11 games and received some national attention. Heading into the 2010 campaign he was a preseason All-MAC honoree by multiple media outlets. At 6-4 and 318 pounds, Morris would certainly fit into the right tackle role at the next level. He has some strength, but lacks the quickness to play left tackle. He could even be moved into the interior part of the line and would be a fine fit at guard.
Morris is a big bodied lineman who usually just gets in the way of the defense. He needs to work on his strength at the point of attack and his footwork, but he has the tools to turn into a decent lineman in the NFL. Morris will not likely be drafted in the first four or five rounds since there is work that needs to be done, but on a team that needs some versatile depth on their offensive line, Morris is not a bad way to go in late rounds."
