Stephen Morris has been on the field for the University of Miami since his sophomore year as a quarterback. He has had a very solid career at the U, but like many guys, has had some downsides that caused him to slip in the NFL Draft board. Nonetheless, he’s gained significant attention from a handful of teams, more specifically, the Dolphins.
As SI’s Fansided notes in an article about Morris (found here), the Dolphins were “impressed” by his showing at the combine and during his workouts. The Dolphins also have a seemingly close relationship with the U, and they are never afraid of gambling on a collegiate player from their Miami counterpart. The Dolphins organization haven’t been eyeing too many quarterbacks, so it seems like Morris has a pretty good shot with them in the mid to late rounds of the draft in May.
WalterFootball placed Morris at the #16 spot for the QB position in the upcoming draft… not too flattering. Morris has the arm of an all-star NFL quarterback, but sometimes is a little too confident in his abilities. This results in overly ambitious throws and inconsistency in the pocket, and he has the tendency to give up a little too early. However, his weaknesses are counteracted by his tremendous football IQ, and his improved ability in reading the field with his impressive vision. If I were a football coach, I’d draft him.
