We felt bad about attaching a "2." to Morris' name, because the line between him and our top Big Ten passing prospect is just razor-thin, and if we could declare a tie, we would.
There isn't a thing Morris can't do as a quarterback. He's big enough to play for anyone at 6'3" and 201 pounds. He's athletic enough that if Michigan wants to run him 10 times a game, he can do that and be productive. He can break big plays with his feet as well as his arm.
And good god, that arm. He's got a rifle, and you can see him even experiment with arm slots a bit in the highlights above. He can pick apart a defense underneath, and that ball speed means receivers would need just a half step less of separation to stay open for the pass—which will probably be delivered exactly where it needs to be.
Morris is awfully reminiscent of former Utah QB (and future No. 1 overall pick) Alex Smith, but with just a little more recklessness in the open field. That's a good thing.
If there's any criticism to be made—and we realize this is nit-picking—it's that Morris gets a little antsier in the pocket than he needs to be, and as a result his timing isn't perfect.
He's a genius at improvising with his feet (think Drew Tate in Aaron Rodgers' body), but the "drop back, plant, throw" needs to happen a little more often.
That's it. That's all we've got. He's fantastic and it's going to be great to see him on the football field when the time comes.
