Darius Morris Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'4 - 318 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Darius Morris, OT, Temple
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.
