Bottom Line on Quintin Morris

Morris may be the victim of a production drop-off in his senior year. He has shown all the tools to be an effective pass-catching tight-end and the effort to deal with physical defenders. Morris is raw in certain aspects of his game that need to be polished, but if a team is willing to do that then he could be a steal. He has the small school mantra working against him. Regardless of that, though, the tools and potential are there for Morris to be a quality tight end in the NFL. A team who takes a chance on him will get a tight end with good receiving tools and NFL level-physicality and work ethic.
