Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 72.90 (Chance to start)

Pro Comparison: Dean Lowry


Mike Morris is an oversized edge rusher with a defensive lineman body. His bulky frame and natural power make him a sturdy edge-setting option. There's deceptive initial juice to his game. He has a swim move, but hands must get more effective. He doesn't have quite enough overall speed or bend to get to the quarterback in a hurry, and he's not quite low/compact enough to routinely win inside. He's a unique, legit tweener prospect who could make his living as an inside nickel rusher in the NFL.


  • Imposing size and power at the point of attack, will move blockers
  • Has some first-step quickness to threaten offensive tackles and many guards
  • Flashed a nice swim move
  • Legitimate versatility


  • Pass-rush-move arsenal needs diversifying
  • Tweener without a true position
  • May not have enough burst and closing speed to win fast enough in the NFL

Combine Results:

  • 40-Yard Dash: 4.95 seconds
  • Vertical: 28.5 inches
  • Broad Jump: 9 feet, 2 inches
  • Bench Press: 22 reps
